Speakers: Martin Pohle & Brian Smith

14.00 UTC 15.00 BST 10.00 EDT

With Just-In-Time manufacturing and parts originating from half a world away, delays can easily cause a production line stoppage. With outages leading to loss of potential revenue and contract penalties, your reputation can be seriously affected.

Optimal routing selection, permits, governmental and security requirements and customs clearances can all play a factor in the success or further delay of getting things up and running once again.  In these scenarios it is critically important to align yourself with a partner who has an intimate knowledge of your business challenges. They must create a transportation solution which mitigates risk and provides the quickest transit times through a variety of transportation methods (including next flight out, direct drive, charter and handcarry).

In this webinar you will find out more about:

  • What delivery solutions will provide the shortest possible transit time and optimized routings on qualified lanes
  • How personnel are trained to handle these high-value emergency parts
  • Why specialty logistics compliance with quality management standards and expert knowledge of customs regulations can help you avoid the risk of shipment delays

World Courier’s experts share their knowledge with you and discuss how an emergency parts logistics partner can help you realize quicker resolutions to shutdown situations while avoiding costly penalties.
