How can We help
Integrating our freight forwarding and warehousing capabilities to keep your business moving
Integrated Freight Forwarding and Distribution provides seamless international transportation of products from various origins through a cross-dock hub for de-consolidating sorting and consolidating before being delivered to end customers. It combines our freight forwarding services across all transport modes and warehousing capabilities into an integrated solution to transport, sort and deliver products from multiple sources to fulfil the customer order.
Why customers choose Integrated Freight Forwarding and Distribution
With our Integrated Freight Forwarding and Distribution, customers will be able to fully outsource the international supply chain of the products from the transportation of products from multiple origins to one or several cross-dock hubs for storage, sortation and outbound distribution to the end customers.
Working closely with our customers through consultation, we offer tailored solutions for Integrated Freight Forwarding and Distribution.
Some key features of our capabilities include international inter- and multimodal transportation of cargo from supply points to hub(s), and cross-dock capable warehouse and value-added services such as storage, sortation and pick/pack. We also offer expertise in outbound distribution, both domestic and international and services in documentation management including proforma invoices, delivery notes and more. Throughout the process, we provide full visibility or the status of the goods and orders from origin to end customer fulfilment.
With Integrated Freight Forwarding and Distribution, customers can overcome challenges, including:
- The need to set up a warehouse to receive products, store, pick/pack and dispatch orders to end customers
- The need to transport products to an existing central warehouse for pick/pack and dispatch to end customers located closer to an origin. This less-than-optimal flow increases both costs and lead times from order to fulfilment, further impacting customer satisfaction and business competitiveness
- Lack of visibility of the status of products received and orders shipped to end customers
- High administrative efforts in managing trade documents due to lack of information management system support
- The need for fixed costs in warehouse operations to meet order fulfilment lead times
