Count on us
Managing the many external service providers along your supply chain is complex. Let us take this task off your hands! We'll manage your freight forwarders and carriers, working with your direct service provider contacts – for smooth processes that save time and costs.
We monitor, coordinate, and control the delivery of your goods along global trade routes to continuously improve your supply chain processes and create added value. As a result, you benefit from cost-efficient processes and reliable coordination between forwarders and shippers with reduced internal complexity.
Freight management the easy way
Focus on core activity
By outsourcing your freight management, you can focus on customer service, sales, marketing, market research, and expansion plans.
Seamless supply chain
Managing global supply chains and cross-border logistics is a challenge. Our standardized execution services use local expertise to ensure things run smoothly.
Ready, steady – go!
Freight management can be implemented relatively quickly. However, carrier capacity issues, service delivery capabilities, and price fluctuations may remain amongst your contracted carriers. Our further 4PL services can be added to eliminate these risks.
