Road haulage remains the dominant mode of goods transport in Continental Europe and the British Isles. Not many companies in the industry offer their own routes spanning, for example, the coasts of Northern Norway and those of the Black Sea. AEROSHIP, however, is able to do exactly that, in addition to more than 200 routes across the entire European realm.
At either end of long haulage routes AEROSHIP is constantly working on optimising cargo handling in terminals to ensure speedy transiting. Locally, AEROSHIP departments or partner organisations cater to clients’ logistics needs in warehouses and value-added centres.
LONG DISTANCE SAFELY AND ON TIME: SPEEDING WITH AIR FREIGHT
Whenever short lead times are on the agenda, the most reliable service can be achieved by using AEROSHIP’s top-rate air services. Based on long-standing relationships with airlines and local agents AEROSHIP is able to offer the assurance that comes with absolute reliability at every crucial step in the supply chain.
Obviously, finished or intermediate products delayed or detained in the process of transportation pose a serious problem in the relationship between buyer and seller and swift action must be taken so as not to jeopardise that relationship. The AEROSHIP dispatcher takes into consideration how much lost time can be recuperated by switching part loads to air transportation while at the same time keeping in mind the economy of slower means of transport for lots not needed urgently. Such expert advice and execution is valued by customers, as it is on, amongst other examples, legalising invoices, authenticating certificates of origin and dealing with reimbursement of documentary credit.
LONG DISTANCE SAFELY AND ON TIME: COST EFFECTIVE BY SEA
No matter where in the world business partners are situated, the supply chain must tick along in order that demands may be met according to plan. AEROSHIP has a century’s worth of experience in cooperating with ship owners and local agents and smoothing over possible problems. That, and the cost effectiveness of sea transport, is highly esteemed by customers.
Planning ahead for the long term regarding modes of transport is the key to optimal budget allocation. However, if problems arise getting things there and back quick action is needed. Otherwise, the question of liability may be raised – and even if not, doubts as to the business partner’s competence may arise in the minds of clients. To prevent such fall-out, in case shipping services are late or disrupted the dispatchers at AEROSHIP take stock of the situation and provide for a timely switch of part loads to air transportation, or road transportation when feasible.
WAREHOUSING AND MUCH MORE
Most companies want really to concentrate on their core competence, leaving other crucial activities to outside partners. Logistics is one such activity that many clients want AEROSHIP to be in charge of.
