Customer Challenge:

Safely store sensitive surgical equipment near their customers and have it immediately delivered on-demand when needed.

Our Custom Solution:

Our forward stocking locations (FSLs) store the carefully calibrated equipment. Couriers transport the equipment as it’s needed to hospitals and surgery centers. They then unpack and set up the equipment, turn it on and test it’s working properly, remove and dispose of all packing material, and manage all necessary signatures and documentation.

Customer Challenge:

Efficiently replace point-of-sale systems at thousands of locations nationwide, ensuring new systems are delivered precisely when installers arrive at each restaurant.

Our Custom Solution:

We receive their new POS systems and pre-stock them at our secure warehouses across the country. When a time-definite installation is scheduled, we stage the system at the nearest warehouse and prep for transport. Our couriers meet up with installation crews at the precise time and location, frequently overnight so restaurant operations aren’t disrupted. We confirm delivery with the manufacturer, remove the old systems and prep them for recycling.

Customer Challenge:

Build a custom expo booth and install electronics for their client at a major tradeshow, ensuring all materials are set up perfectly and broken down to meet the venue’s strict requirements and timelines.

Our Solution:

We understand how expensive and time-critical tradeshow installations are. We accept in-bound shipments of materials, assess OS+D (over, short and damaged), and safely store in our warehouse closest to the venue. Couriers transport and deliver the materials to the venue door, or directly to the client’s booth space where they build and install the exhibit according to the agency’s specific instructions. When the show ends, they pick up all materials and either transport back to storage or arrange disposal.

Customer challenge:

Fill orders for their products made in China, ensuring precise quantities of multiple products are delivered to retailers across the U.S. in time for a seasonal promotion.

Our Solution:

TSA-certified couriers receive air freight from China at LAX and transport to our FSL next to the airport. Our logistics and project managers sort the freight and prepare to forward to multiple locations, using varied modes of transport to distribute the freight across the country following the customized transport plan. Final-mile couriers deliver products to the individual retail outlets, ensuring all shipments are tracked, signed for, and documented according to the manufacturer’s specific protocols.
