Crane Worldwide Logistics' team in South Africa resolve air freight logistics challenges

Jessen (Pty) Ltd, leaders in accessibility solutions for elderly and disabled people, have seen an influx in demand due to South Africa's newly-enforced accessibility building regulations. Service delivery failures from Sweden and Greece have consistently been an issue faced by Jessen, adding additional costs to their overall supply chain expenditure.

The Challenge

Jessen (Pty) Ltd, approached Crane Worldwide Logistics to find a solution to address the service failures that had induced several non-recoverable charges. These charges were significantly impacting their bottom line. Crane Worldwide Logistics' team in South Africa looked into a future solution for our client with a keen sense of urgency. Working in partnership with Jessen, the team recognized several cost-saving options to explore enhancing the current air freight processes for the client to improve reliability.

Our Solution

Through close relationships with airline partners and analysis of the existing air freight operation, Crane Worldwide Logistics was able to provide multiple carrier options and routings for Jessen.

“We have worked with several logistics partners, but Crane Worldwide Logistics is the best yet, the team is quick to respond, and no request is too much. It's a high ­performing team.”
