The Challenge

Delivery of raw materials to manufacturing facilities on a timely manner is a crucial part of managing the inward supply chain. It becomes even more critical when you deal with the garment industry where factories work on the just in time principles. A late delivery will create factory idle times costing money, time and most importantly missing client deadlines.

Most logistics partners that we deal with have unfortunately experienced critical service failure when serving the garment industry. Once the cargo reaches the port it is of the utmost importance to clear cargo without any holdups and transport to the distribution center as soon as possible. Tight deadlines coupled with numerus SKU’s as well as multiple delivery locations require careful planning and coordination.
