We Make Finding a Logistics Company Easy!
The time has come for you to make a purchase of a big ticket item like a car or a house as usual, you’re somewhat confused how to go about doing this. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was someone that you could go to who could provide you with all of the answers and you wouldn’t have to go shopping around to numerous dealers / real estate agents?
When it comes to purchasing logistics services and finding a logistics company, I often get asked the same questions:
a) What do logistics companies really do?
b) How much does it cost to store my electronics products with you and how do you bill me?
c) What’s the best way to communicate with the mass retailers like Best Buy and Target and send our orders in?
d) Do you have the capability to ship our sporting goods products across the country from your facility?
Usually when I hear these types of questions, there is a bit of panic in my customer’s voice as they quite often already have their hardware or food goods on the way.
Well, for once, I have some good news for you if you’re in this situation. The fact is that our logistics company has the ability to be a one-stop shop for you. When it comes to picking up your cargo at the port, receiving it in our facility, storing it in our racks, picking your orders, integrating your EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) with your mass retailer or independent store or lastly, shipping the product to them, we can do all of this! From a timing perspective, we prefer to have 30 days to bring you on board but if you’re in a pinch, we’ve been known to do this much faster (less than a week is possible).
How easy is that? Well I won’t B.S. you, it’s not as simple as it sounds. Logistics is somewhat complicated as there are numerous factors that affect your price and ability to work with a logistics company. However, when you’re dealing with professionals who have the correct systems and infrastructure in place, it will make your life much easier. Rather than dealing with numerous vendors, it’s always a bonus when you can save time and money by finding a one-stop facility like ours! Give us a call and we’ll be happy to help you out!
