Port congestion and inventory overflow have caused a number of issues for supply chains throughout the world. As regulations shift based on COVID-19 restrictions, ports have a habit of opening and closing at unpredictable times.
This can lead to a lot of frustration when a shipment simply must arrive at its destination on time. Because of this, our team broke down some of the ways we can help expedite your shipments, so your cargo gets where it needs to be when it needs to be there.
Expedited Air Freight
Some cargo is relatively light and resilient. When it meets the qualifications for air freight, it has a lot more options for being shipped quickly across the globe. Expedited air freight can navigate around backed up ports in order to ensure cargo reaches a destination on time.
TOC Logistics has been in the industry for almost ten years, which means we have a lot of industry relationships to rely on. We work directly with airlines to not just get your cargo moved quickly, but at an affordable price, too. Plus, with full tracking transparency, you’ll never have to wonder where your shipment is or when it will arrive.
There are a lot of ways to ship cargo efficiently, and normally that means relying on FCLs (Full Container Loads) to get the job done. However, when ports are full or bursting, it could take a lot longer for FCLs to make it to the front of the line.
That’s where expedited LCLs come in. LCLs, or Less than Container Loads, take up a fraction of the space of a container. Normally, this would be incredibly expensive to ship, but our team offers consolidation programs to make LCLs even more convenient. We’ll make sure your shipment is packed with goods from other suppliers that are all going to the same place.
When that happens, the cargo container is filled, and the price of the shipment is split between the suppliers. More than one company can ship at once, and your cargo is much more likely to leave the port on time.
