Regional Lead Logistics
We understand that managing global supply chains requires local knowledge. At every stage, market structures, culture, politics and local business practices can vary. Cross-border logistics, in particular, can be highly complex. That’s why we have developed regional services to handle the local aspects of global logistics: Lead Logistics Europe, Lead Logistics Americas and Lead Logistics Asia Pacific.
Although adapted locally, our Lead Logistics services are globally integrated and transparent. Using inventories within warehouses and cross dock facilities, we tightly manage your supply chain from end-to-end.

This has two consequences: Currently unsaleable items need to be stored temporarily and companies are having to build up safety stocks to avoid interruptions in supply.
