As distributors are expanding their e-marketplace, many are struggling to find the right end-to-end transportation service providers. Customers buying online want their purchase to be easy from order fulfillment to delivery. For many distributors it’s about being able to deliver an order in a time frame and price point that customers want.
The vast availability of goods via the internet has transformed the value chain, and opened new ways for buyers to find products and suppliers. The wholesale distribution industry is looking for opportunities to enter new markets, in this new, complex environment. Wholesale distributors need a reliable transportation network across multiple geographies and various custom processes. Relying on multiple transportation providers to ship samples, full orders and time critical supplies may have worked in the past; however, when shipping internationally, using multiple providers will increase the risk of inconsistent customs declarations and unnecessary delays.
“The importance of the customer experience takes center stage,” said Pamela Rollins, Sr. V.P. of Business Development. “Amerijet has a wide range of customers but they all have one thing in common – they want their shipment delivered on the day it was promised, regardless of how it was shipped.”
Amerijet is an all-cargo carrier operating scheduled flights to and from the U.S., the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America for more than 40 years. With 25 offices in the United States and 130 international offices, the company has established a worldwide partner network providing seamless transportation solutions to connect to 625 destinations worldwide. As an all-cargo carrier, Amerijet specializes in transporting heavy and oversized freight, hazardous material, temperature controlled and pharmaceuticals, live animals, valuable and fragile goods in single small packages, on pallets or skids, in containers or crates, or for consolidated shipments.
“Many of our customers require tailored solutions, which may range from door-pickup and delivery, customs brokerage, cross-border trucking and packing and crating services,” Rollins further added. “Shippers want flexibility because it allows them to position their products for the international market place. They want to work with reliable and experienced transportation partners as a transparent extension of their service.”
