Logistical Monitoring

Critical to proper handling of your shipment, we have incorporated logistical integrated monitoring that provides actionable data over the course of transport via 2 service levels:

  • Level 1 – Meticulous and rigorous tracking included with all orders:
    • We monitor all in-transit movement for any unordinary movements or delays.
    • After years of sending thousands of shipments across borders, we know how to identify unexpected transit delays or deviations, and we intervene as needed.
    • We proactively act when a shipment is stalled, promptly interacting with freight forwarders and updating customers, until successful delivery occurs.
  • Level 2 – Active, dynamic tracking
    • Live, real-time electronic tracking—monitoring shipments from start to delivery.
    • This advanced optional service is combined with Level 1.
