A manufacturer of stock items and customer specific materials for Tier 1 automotive and communications applications required buyer consolidation services across multiple small shipments.
Our customer had daily shipments from multiple US Distribution Center locations into its Brazilian manufacturing site. These shipments were small in terms of total kilos and great in number; meaning numerous import Customs clearances at destination.
Uneven departures and arrivals resulted from the varied and uncoordinated shipping pattern.
We introduced and then utilized a centralized pick up process from a single consolidated departure point.
We used CEVA’s US linehaul capability to perform pick-up and movements to MIA (Miami) for export consolidation operations.
We have been able to assemble multiple LCL (less-than- container load) shipments into a single Full Container Load.
We have introduced a weekly cut-off to ensure consistent departure and arrival intervals are understood and adhered to.
for end-to-end supply chain
Centralized pick up process, from a single consolidated departure point.
The customer now has visibility all along his supply chain from pick up to arrival.
The customer now has consistent and predictable arrivals to feed the manufacturing facility.
Full Container Loads have led to cost efficiencies. There is now a single Customs entry fee at destination rather than multiple charges for individual items as loads are consolidated.
