At Crane Worldwide Logistics our Consumer Goods sector experts focus on a holistic view of a product's supply chain from the outset of product development to final end-user delivery to support increasing consumer demands.
When using a customs bonded warehouse, goods can be held until duties and inspections are addressed. In some cases, exporters can defer payment of duty and taxes until the goods have been purchased. Bonded storage can provide significant cost savings and allow for goods to be stored closer to the end user. With bonded facilities all over the world, our consumer goods logistics experts will support your operations with agile and flexible solutions.
“Our goal is to provide flexible and agile transportation, storage and value added processes for consumer goods trade through our international network, utilizing the most cost efficient and reliable supply chain options.”
Planning and working together with supply chain partners creates efficiencies to overcome unforeseen challenges in the fast-paced environment for Consumer Goods. Forecasting can be a challenge and flexibility in supply chain processes including transportation methods, warehouse locations, and accurate inventory visibility can make a difference to ensure supply meets demand. With a focus on fast moving consumer goods logistics (FMCG) from components to finished goods, Crane Worldwide can support your order fulfillment demands with full warehousing services, transportation and final delivery with real time visibiility.
Fast-moving consumer goods are non-durable consumer products that are in high demand, have a high turnover rate, and a short shelf-life.
