Warehousing and IT solutions usher coffee vendor into global market
A growing retail coffee vendor building an overseas presence found that Agility had the global resources and international logistics experience it needed to succeed. Agility stepped in with a vendor consolidation program and a centralized warehouse in Canada, where orders from franchisees’ vendors could be consolidated into container load, less than container load and air freight shipments for overseas destinations. The result: instant cost savings. The customer and its franchisees benefited from even greater efficiencies with Agility’s warehouse management system, which includes a quality control service to ensure the correct merchandise ships in the specified quantities and a tracking tool to monitor shipment statuses.
Agility’s global markets expertise was most essential in handling the customer’s international documentation; we significantly reduced errors and were able to correct mistakes prior to shipment.
