Solution: Deringer helped the company understand its supply chain options from a holistic perspective. The company had air and ocean shipments — full container load and less than container load — and also needed to understand the unique requirements of U.S. Customs clearance. Deringer guided the entire process, explaining documentation requirements, anti-dumping duties and proper classification of goods. The company uses Deringer for customs brokerage, transportation and cross-dock distribution services to mid-size retailers.
Results: The company has grown its U.S. imports from four shipments in the first year to an estimated 200 this year. Its supply chain strategy contributes to its competitive advantage.
