There are seven Rs of logistics, according to the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, an international organization for supply chain, logistics and transport professionals. They define them as such: "getting the right product, in the right quantity, in the right condition, at the right place, at the right time, to the right customer, at the right price."
Ineffective and inefficient logistics can debilitate your business, triggering production delays, which impact delivery times, sales, and, eventually, your bottom line.
Hong Kong-based San-Legend Limited (SLG) is now providing its top of the line professional logistics services in Richmond, B.C. SLG implements an effective logistics strategy, which adds efficiencies, cuts costs, and helps your business gain control across the supply chain. Its core objective is to help ensure your products are delivered to the correct location at the precise time to meet delivery deadlines.
The company is expanding its global footprint to enhance its position in solving the complexities of global shipping and logistics challenges for both big companies and individual clients. It also endeavors to grow and work together with new start-up businesses.
Offering a complete range of services to support its customers, SLG uses its established operations in Los Angeles, New York, and London, as well as trusted partners in China and other Southeast Asian countries.
"We have good connections and agencies in those countries, which allows us to move goods faster," explains Lydia Ho, director, San-Legend Limited. "Efficiency is at the core of our business, and we're responsive to our client's needs by providing timely solutions, with one contact window for each customer.
"One of our biggest benefits is that we have a 10,000-square-foot warehouse in Kwai Chung, Hong Kong. It's a good place to store cargo that is made in Southeast Asia because Hong Kong is a free-trade port with no taxes or duty."
"We'll take care of your short-term or long-term storage and shipment needs irrespective of size, origin or destination, and can also handle dangerous goods as well," Ho continues. "We provide quotes and solutions for companies looking for storage for that type of cargo."
In addition to warehousing, SLG's full suite of comprehensive solutions includes sea freight, air freight and local or global distribution/delivery. It also offers a host of value-added services such as e-commerce pick and pack, transportation management, cross-border transport, customs clearance for all import/export, and repacking and labeling.
With a complete set of air freight services, from door pick-up at origins, multiple consolidations, customs clearance, warehouse storage, air forwarding and bill of lading application, all the way through to delivery to end customers, SLG's professional and experienced team will have your business and markets covered anywhere in the world.
If you're interested in a more cost-effective option when speed isn't crucial, ocean freight may be the right choice for your cargo. You can expect a full range of flexible and reliable international ocean freight services across the globe with optimal tariffs and routes.
"Whether sea or air freight, we provide a reasonable timeline and inform you where your product is within one to two days," says Ho.
