Basic Flow of our Transportation Services
Records of Successful Transportation Service
Before Our Proposal Submission
For Company A which exports production parts the reliable supply of its parts to its overseas factories was critical and production cost economizing had become an important issue. Since Company A had signed a contract directly with shipping company B Company A had to resort to using a shipping company with which it had not signed a contract when the ship of company B had no vacant hull space, and this had given rise to the problems of “transportation costs are getting too high” and “deliveries to overseas factories are delayed.”
After Our Proposal Submission
By having the Company avail itself of our variegated services it became possible for the company to secure hull space at stable cost and also to effect deliveries to overseas factories according to schedule.
Shortening of lead time was also realized by giving the customer a choice of the service best suited for the occasion.
It was also possible to lighten the work load by letting us handle the peripheral work associated with shipment.
- Review the present logistics system and cost
- Examine the transportation method that has been refused by another company
- Export to a country we have as yet not done business with but we do not know what the local customs clearance situation is
- Shorten our lead time
- Examine more efficient ways of transportation since the volume of business with overseas countries (mainly China and ASEAN countries) has increased in recent years
- Outsource logistics-related administration work, including the preparation of documents
- Effect a modal shift more sparing on the environment
- Domestic Logistics Service
With the recent trend of rising logistics cost, we are facing more and more demands for “optimization.”
We are determined to provide each customer with proposals to solve their issues by building streamlined logistics systems based on a dominant strategy and commonization.
The current demands for e-Commerce are good opportunities for customers to expand their businesses. However, in order to capitalize on these opportunities, customers are required to create an e-Commerce facility, including computing and operational systems.
We will contribute to the business expansion of customers by assisting them to create their optimized e-Commerce facility based on our acquired expertise from past projects.
