Our oceans are the world’s greatest highway accounting for 95% of the goods shipped worldwide. There are fifty-five thousand merchant vessels in operation that are circulating an estimated twenty million ocean containers throughout the world. What does that mean to shippers? It means in about 30 days one can ship their goods inside an ocean container door to door to or from just about anywhere on the planet. There are exceptions, of course, but shipping over the sea is reliable and the single most important mode of shipping internationally. Ocean freight is also the most cost-effective way to move freight worldwide as modern super carriers can carry 15,000+ containers per sailing. The fact that any given vessel can travel distances estimated at up to ¾ of the distance to the moon and back in one year highlights the significance ocean freight has on our lives in the modern world.
Shippers certainly have their own unique requirements regarding transit time allowances in any given supply chain and that is where our specialization can work for you...inbound or outbound. When time is of the essence, we have the solutions. At origin overseas, for example, our people can scramble a truck to your supplier and take the shipment directly to the dock. One cannot rush a ship at sea but once the vessel is worked at the port many processes can be accelerated dramatically. We can work to get advanced carrier release and have a truck at the staging area to pull the container by truck all the way to your door. Import or Export our people locally and worldwide communicate, coordinate and get it done. For less urgent cargos we have the bottom-line approach to assure good delivery time at a required value matching the exact needs of the project. We have the solutions for every project and supply chain no matter where the priority on the time-cost service matrix and that includes consolidated, special equipment, break bulk and ro/ro consignments.
International airfreight is not an exact science but it is a continuous goal to make it that way. It is an endeavor taken on by only strong professionals that are not faint of heart. Tremendous planning and coordination is required before a shipment is even picked up to mitigate any unforeseen circumstances that might cause delays in the critical movement sequence of a given airfreight consignment. Paperwork must be exact and freight properly packed must be labelled, staged and screened before loading takes place. A cadre of highly trained specialists within the logistics progression need to use process discipline and exercise flexibility to inspect, analyze and anticipate necessary corrections to keep shipments on mission. Our people are intelligent, trained, motivated and up for the task.
Airfreight also has its value hierarchy and we employ every method to insure our airfreight products meet the distribution management requirements our clients demand. The requirement could be an auxiliary inventory re-supply export shipment to Australia needing a 10 to 14 day deferred routing at relatively low cost. In another case, critical components for the assembly line need to be on the next flight out of Frankfurt and at the plant in Alabama the next day requiring 24-hour, nonstop action to accomplish the mission. We have the resources, knowledge and expertise to keep your international airfreight shipments on time, on budget and delivered without compromise. At Jensen, we strive to be the best tool in your logistics chain getting the job done through air charters, hand carriers, white glove door to door expedited, 3-5 day accelerated, deferred or delivery on demand shipments directly from the bonded facility.
