Utilizing our global network, we provide our clients with the benefit of multi-vendor consolidations.
Transmodal has invested in a global network of strategically placed Container Freight Stations (CFS) to provide our clients with the benefit of multi-vendor consolidations with a standardized information flow and container loading procedure.
Our Consolidation Service is tightly integrated with our Vendor Management and Import Logistics services to eliminate handoffs and speed delivery. Using the latest inventory management systems and techniques, our consolidation warehouses receives final inventory allocations and prints shipment labels for final delivery (to save the cost and time of doing it at destination). We can also split Purchase Orders and stage cargo by zone. So depending on the final store, warehouse, or customer destination, you can lower overall shipment costs by optimizing routings to the West Coast, Mid-West, South and East Coast. All operations are automated with bar-coding to eliminate keying errors and improve overall process quality. Our staff can also perform cargo inspections and help resolve quality issues with your supplier.
As your outsourced overseas import office, Transmodal and our overseas agents act as your representative to ensure timely, accurate, cost-effective solutions that drives significant economic benefit. Don't trust your shipments to anything less than the personalized services we will deliver.
Purchase Order Supervision & Reporting
Know the status of your shipments in an instant, day or night, with our Import Direct System®. Purchase order data can be transmitted to us in any electronic format. Once received and acknowledged by our system, open purchase orders are diligently monitored, reviewed and updated by our operational personnel across the world. Status reports can be accessed online, or via electronic delivery to the location of your choice. You will never have to wonder about the status of your shipment-we provide 24-hour access and peace of mind in a comprehensive services package.
Physical consolidation efforts are coordinated via our regional offices (or agents) to ensure that all merchandise is received in compliance with instructions provided by the individual importer. All markings and numbers are then meticulously checked to assure they meet importer specifications. Once the merchandise is validated, it is then loaded onto shipping containers for shipment. Distribution of load, size, style, color, and other shipment and container criteria may be fully customized. Our goal is to provide a seamless integration with your existing operational model and uninterrupted service no matter the load requirements.
Commercial Document Collection & Cargo Receipt Issuance
A complete set of commercial documents is collected and reviewed for timeliness, accuracy, and compliance with Importers instructions and/or Letter of Credit requirements. Once the documents have been approved, the Forwarders Cargo Receipt (FCR) is issued and released to the vendor. Scanned documents can be sent via electronic file for lean and fast confirmation, while the originals are sent via courier to all designated parties. Let us do the paperwork, while you concentrate on growing your business.
