As an experienced freight forwarder, Velocity are here to support your business by receiving and shipping goods on your behalf. If you’ve previously filed freight forwarding in the non-essential expense column of your budget plans, then read on, because we want to explain how we can add value to your operation, particularly during these challenging times.
Firstly, what do we mean when we talk about freight forwarding?
A quick Google will give you all manner of complex definitions for freight forwarding. But at Velocity, we like to keep the jargon simple to avoid confusion. As an outsourced freight forwarder, we receive and ship your goods on through our specialist facilities. As part of the service, we will also prepare documentation, track cargo, and take care of other administrative tasks involved in the receiving, unloading and dispatch process.
Our approach is designed to add value to your business through:
Our experience and knowledge of international logistics will ensure you find the most cost-effective, and just as importantly, reliable, options when it comes to your shipping. After all, the cheapest option isn’t always the best bet.
We have strong relationships with logistics suppliers throughout the world, and often use those links to negotiate best rates for our clients.
Reliability as standard.
Our reputation is built on delivering reliability. We know how to store, prepare and move goods safely, and on time. And where issues do crop up, as can often happen in logistics, we have plans in place to ensure things can be resolved, with minimal effect on your business.
Using innovation to cut costs, save time, and improve your customer experience.
Whether it’s the cutting edge unloading and repackaging equipment we use to ensure your goods are secure and undamaged, or the tracking technology that keeps you and your clients in the loop at all times, we love the difference tech makes.
Less time (and money) spent doing it yourself.
Moving goods can be a time-consuming process. Because freight deliveries can come at different times of the day (or night), it can mean paying out for overtime, and even taking on additional or temporary staff.
At Velocity, our outsourced freight forwarding service frees you of this burden. Once you start working with us, we’ll take care of the staffing side of things, and you can focus on growing your business.
Focussing your mind on your core operations.
How much of your time is currently taken away from your core needs through vetting carriers, resolving transport issues, and negotiating logistics contracts? Put those demands in our hands, and give yourself more time and headspace to devote to the rest of your operational needs.
