C3-Global Logistics Solutions (C3-GLS) prides itself in offering consulting services to help shippers identify and improve the best methodologies to transport their loads. It is imperative for shippers to have a strong understanding of the operations of their freight provider. Without the proper preparation, shipping freight can quickly transform from cost-effective to costly. With the ever-changing requirements of receivers, the prospect of shipping may seem daunting freight does not have to be time-consuming or expensive. With C3-GLS, we can implement our knowledge in freight transportation and save shippers time and satisfy their end customers.
To understand how C3-GLS’ different departments work in tandem, we streamline our operations from beginning to end in all our departments through the use Lean Six Sigma methodologies. We employ integrated program teams (IPTs) which are multidisciplinary group of people who are collectively responsible for delivering a defined service.
Maintaining cross-departmental transparency ensures that C3-GLS can do their job effectively and ship without complications. By educating all our sales force on our Lean Six Sigma methodologies before they begin to sell our services, they understand the processes and procedures for each our services so they can provide consistent and quality service to all.
C3-GLS takes relationships and communication to another level. We know that It is important to remember that no two receiving locations are the same, even if they’re owned by the same customer.
Learning how each receiving location operates will help shippers avoid delays and extra charges. Businesses must determine a number of things about the receiver, such as how they handle pick-ups, lift gate services, waiting time, storage, packing and fuel surcharges. In many cases, these factors can be negotiated into one flat fee or waived completely.
Fully understanding the shippers supply chain, is the first line of defense we provide when mitigating delays, additional overages and headaches associated with shipping freight. Examining how freight providers work and increasing cross-departmental communication in their own operations or considering a partnership with a logistics provider like C3-GLS, shippers can plan effectively and ship freight without suffering from large accessorial costs and impossible time constraints.
Without taking the time to know our customers and their needs, we could not provide the best services possible. We care about what your business needs are and what drives your business…
How a carrier fares in terms of safety is an important factor C3-GLS must investigate to deliver the perfect timing and safety performance our shippers deserves.
C3-GLS suggests that by selecting carriers based on a pre-defined set of objectives and requirements this practice can ensures that shippers select a smaller number of carriers who align closely with their needs and experience level.
C3-GLS has this important level of understanding because it allows us to help shippers to plan more effectively and better position their resources to have the freight ready when it needs to ship.
