Inbound and Outbound Logistics
Our 3PL and 4PL solutions include end-to-end services including inbound logistics and transportation management, cross docking and outbound delivery to distribution centers, retail stores or direct to consumer. Our inbound logistics solutions begin at the port, rail, or through our industry leading cross border solution where we manage more than 26,000 border crossings per month, with an incident free rate of 99.6%. Outbound logistics value is provided through cross docking capabilities, just-in-time delivery, access to multiple freight lanes, and shipment execution.Read More
As consumer product returns and manufacturer recalls continue to rise, having seamless reverse logistics capabilities allows you to keep service levels high and costs low. On average, companies spend 9% - 15% of revenues on returns. Our full suite of reverse logistics services help move your supply chain forward, enhance your returns management, and can deliver a return of up to 5% of total sales. We do this by identifying lanes to bring inventory back to a distribution facility.Read More
Our aftermarket logistics solution helps automotive, technology, and industrial manufacturers to optimize reverse logistics and repairs, as well as manage spare parts efficiently. As a result, you differentiate yourself from competitors by reducing customer downtime and lowering your cost to operate. We do this through managing SKU count and inventory to meet high service requirements, engineering repair processes, and implementing bundling, packing, and kitting capabilities. This allows you to manage a catalogue of spares, increase speed-to-market, and minimize costs.
