Self Initiator to go in the market and meet Suppliers & Manufacturers and Introduce myself, my company & team to discuss the best suited means (Both time efficient and cost effective) for their commodity movements for both Import or Exports.
NVOCC Agency Handling
NVOCC agency is a new revolution in freight forwarding industry where the agents represents the NVOCC operator at various locations where the Operator does not have own offices and helps the NVOCC Operator turning around the containers for exports. This creates a Win-Win Situation for both the NVOCC Operator who has shared his task without having own offices worldwide, instead have agents to help them to take care of their import containers and once empty to propose the containers to local suppliers & manufacturers, and for agents where agents are fairly rewarded by the principals and have a substantial mark-up on the Import & Export movements.

Import & Export Customs Clearance
Most Suppliers / Manufacturing & Trading Companies prefer a One Stop Shop and Expect their Forwarders to do the entire Shipment from them basis Door to Door (Ex-Works) and that is where I come in Picture. While meeting such companies requiring our freight services my main focus is to give customer the benefit of one stop shop, even though the company I work for may or may not have their own assets for providing cargo / container transport from Warehouse / Shipper door at Origin until cargo reaches to the consignee destination door. The most Vital element is the Customs clearance for our Customers consignment.
Warehousing is one of the most vital element and is a standalone department / division in any Supply Chain Management or a Freight Forwarding Company and is looked upon as the most important assets for generating revenue since such companies allows the Manufacturer / Supplier / Distributor to focus more on their cargo manufacturing, supply and distribution and the Warehousing company takes care of the handling in/out of the cargo in their bonded and non-bonded warehouse.

The agile model. The flexible model.

Knowledge is limitless and it grows not only by gaining it but by sharing the same with others who show interest too. I with my expertise can generate revenue for 3 PL & Logistics companies who want to operate a medium size terminal to stow empties and release it to Shipping lines / NVOCC’s as required which can generate a major revenue for 3 PL’s who have their own NVOCC Principal’s who often look forward for saving some cost on their empties storage inside the port terminal which is an expensive affair. This business can also open doors to inspection, cleaning and repair of containers which is a good revenue with fewer market competitions.
