Cost-effective and timely delivery of your orders is a critical aspect of supply chain efficiency. GTA’s bilingual project managers work with factory sources and freight forwarders to maximize container loading efficiency, identify the most rapid and cost-effective shipping route and modes, coordinate timely pick-up and shipment of completed orders, efficiently clear customs and coordinate in-land freight to the final destination.
While most GTA clients prefer the lower cost of ocean shipments, we can arrange air shipments to meet urgent delivery deadlines. GTA’s experience arranging air shipments typically helps its clients conserve cost and reduce risk.
GTA can also arrange for the consolidation of a client’s orders from multiple factories at one location prior to shipment from the country of origin. Consolidated shipments reduce shipping costs and often allow a client to enhance inventory turns.
Due to the high volume of freight managed by GTA, we are able to obtain discounted shipping rates for our clients by annually aggregating their needs and submitting them to freight forwarders for quotation. Typically, our clients realize lower shipping rates by working with GTA than they could obtain on their own.
Since GTA business is highly sought after by our freight forwarding partners, they tend to be responsive to the needs of our clients. As a result, we are able to better manage port delays or peak shipping periods such at the weeks leading up to Chinese New Year.
GTA’s professional staff have also cultivated close professional relationships with our freight forwarding partners, which allows us to more efficiently solve any problems that may occur.
