Chief of the Department of consolidated cargoes, tells about the services TELS offers in this segment.
How did the excess need for transporting consolidated cargoes to Ukraine arise?
According to the opinion poll held at the end of the previous year, during which TELS interviewed the chiefs and heads of logistic departments in large manufacturing and trading companies, almost 70% of businessmen representing Ukrainian companies supported the tactics to optimize the costs by reducing depot stock when importing goods and materials in smaller consignments.
Poll results confirmed the real situation in the Ukrainian logistics market. For different reasons, the major part of the Ukrainian importers would like to receive cargoes in smaller consignments and, if possible, at the same price for each commodity unit.
What makes collaboration with TELS in matters of consolidated cargoes more profitable as compared to other companies?
A wide inflow of orders for delivery of consolidated cargoes from Europe allows quick consolidation of cargoes and practically daily dispatches to CIS countries as well as Kiev and other regions in Ukraine.
Perhaps, TELS has the widest network of consolidation warehouses in Europe (in Lithuania, Spain, Italy, Poland and Germany). Delivery time from consignor’s warehouse to TELS’s consolidation warehouse is often less than 24 hours (with the maximum delivery time of 48 hours). Thus, our company is quick at arranging, consolidating and shipping the cargoes to the consignee.
To expedite delivery and transportation of fast and valuable freights, TELS offers less-than-truckload transportation. In certain cases it’s more profitable.
Which related services does TELS render while delivering consolidated cargoes?
It’s highly important to prepare all the required transportation documents. To make sure the cargo arrives quickly, transportation documents should be prepared in full accordance with the requirements of the customs authorities. Even a minor problem with one of the cargoes may delay the whole consolidated consignment. Note that the documents required for the consignment may take a ream of office paper.
Moreover, these include warehouse services. Due to long-term collaboration and great volumes of work with warehouses in Europe, TELS can offer special prices for placing cargoes at warehouses, which help reduce the general price for the delivery of consolidated cargoes. TELS offers all the required terminal cargo handling at warehouses (provision of identifying information, packaging, repackaging, weighing, photographing and other services).
On the whole, the delivery of consolidated cargoes includes the following steps:
Batching the cargoes at consolidation warehouses;
Packaging cargoes with regard to their specific characteristics;
Preparing all the required transportation documents;
Choosing the right vehicle for transportation;
Delivering consolidated cargoes to destination points.
Each step should be worked through as well as the required volumes of goods, storage space, workforce, etc. should be provided.
