Using a GIT-C to optimize electronics cargo packing in Asia
Agility partnered with a global telecommunications provider to create a Goods in Transit Center (GIT-C) that reduces air cargo weight, transport costs and carbon emissions on shipments originating in mainland China and Hong Kong, destined to India. Agility packs consumer electronics cargo more densely on air pallets to reduce volumes and improve efficiencies in the use of aircraft. This reduces packaging, pallets and dead space on planes. Agility achieved this by modifying its web-based tracking system to get a clear view of the customer’s shipping schedule and inventory.
The system displays the physical makeup of customer consignments, including weight, size, and handling requirements. Dedicated teams and facilities manage operations to optimize packing, reducing 6 percent or more of cargo weight and CO2 emissions – which translates to the customer’s bottom line.
