Every business, from the largest shipper to small and mid-size, has unique supply chain requirements and is impacted by changing market and economic conditions that affect planning and performance. That’s why it’s important to know about alternative logistics and transportation services that provide agility and flexibility when they’re needed. The ability to access the right solutions, at the right time, to address the demands of your business is critical to your bottom line. This is particularly advantageous in Latin America where businesses often deal with a range of infrastructure and transport network challenges. LCL is a key option to address the ever-changing conditions.
The value of LCL transportation services, and how it can be a great option to serve your business needs and enhance customer satisfaction.
LCL services allow you to ship goods even when you don’t have enough freight to fill a regular ocean container. This is a meaningful alternative as it offers shipment size flexibility and the ability to better manage inventory levels and product mix. It also enables companies to reduce the need for large amounts of inventory on hand – a practice which risks tying up crucial cash flow.
LCL can be a cost-effective choice if you are a shipper with several orders to deliver to a tight deadline – you need to ship your goods immediately, but there isn’t enough cargo to qualify as full container. It not only allows you to meet market demand but also ensures on-time delivery – a top priority. Reliable LCL is a good option, for Latin American shippers, that ensures a reliable flow of cargo and an improved customer experience.
For companies that are using advanced technology for precise demand forecasting, LCL is the best option to cater to customer orders with a consistent flow of regular low-volume shipments. Another scenario where LCL may prove to be the best choice is when companies need to move lower freight volumes to sync up with promotions and product launches.
