How can an international freight forwarder help you achieve your goals?

The main aim of international logistics is to send goods sold by a company located in one country to a customer located in another as soon as possible and under the best conditions.

All these operations must be organized in compliance with the laws and international trade treaties of each country. The complexity of the international supply chain requires the intervention of several stakeholders: carriers, banks, insurance companies, customs authorities, port facilities and various ministries. Your coordinator is at the centre of the process, in order to orchestrate all the steps for you, from the point of departure to the point of arrival.

Certain de nos clients à l’exportation veulent absolument utiliser la lettre de crédit pour chacune de nos transactions. C’était un stress supplémentaire pour nous étant donné les instructions strictes à respecter et les coûts supplémentaires en cas d’irrégularités. L’équipe de Jones a su nous rassurer en inspectant la lettre de crédit avec attention pour nous mentionner les points à vérifier ou à modifier.
