Many retailers and manufactures treat product returns as individual, separate transactions. The challenge for retailers and vendors is to process returns at a level that allows quick, efficient and cost-effective collection and inventory of the product. End user demands place a premium on companies to provide this service at a high standard to include accurate processing in a timely manner. Let Clark Logistic Services be responsible for providing this critical step in your supply chain. By following a returns management flow, established by your company and Clark Logistic Services, we can achieve a returns process that addresses all operational and end user demands.
Foreign Trade Zones
With the use of Clark Logistic Services’ Foreign Trade Zone we can provide special customs procedures to companies engaged in international trade-related activities. Duty-free treatment can be placed on items that are processed in FTZs and then re-exported, and duty payment is deferred on items until they are brought out of the FTZ for sale in the U.S. market. This ability aids companies in keeping a sharper eye on cash flow, deferring payment of Duty Tax, and aids in budgeting production and distribution.
Cross-docking is the practice of unloading product from a container, rail car, or semi-trailer and loading these materials directly into outbound trucks, trailers, or rail cars, with little or no storage in between. Cross-docking may be implemented to change transportation type, to sort product intended for different destinations, or to combine product from different origins into trucks, trailers, containers, or rail cars with the same, or similar destination.
Advantages to cross-docking:
- Streamlines the supply chain from point of origin to point of sale
- Reduces handling costs, operating costs, and the storage of inventory
- Products get to the distributor and consequently to the customer faster
- Reduces, or eliminates warehousing costs
- May increase available retail sales space
Clark Logistic Services has the knowledge and expertise to operate, implement, or just improve on your current cross-docking operations.
Transloading is the process that occurs when a shipment must be transferred from one mode of transportation to another. The most common use is when one mode cannot be used for the entire trip, for instance when goods must be shipped internationally from one inland point to another. Such shipments require transport by truck to an airport, then shipped by air overseas, and then to another truck at its destination.
Clark Logistic Services understands that transloading requires additional handling of the product. This, if done incorrectly, may cause additional expense and risk of damage. Therefore our facilities are designed with the intent of minimizing the handling. Understanding the fact that each mode of transportation differs in their capabilities is crucial to have an operation that can handle all aspects of the transloading operations. Transloading is a simple but critical operation that needs to be handled efficiently and safely. Product tracking and proper material handling are key.
