AGS, a full-service transportation and logistics provider has introduced AGS Import Advantage service, a comprehensive menu of services to aid importers in getting products from their overseas suppliers direct to their factory or their customers' doors anywhere in the U.S.
Bob Imbriani, vice president of international operations for AGS, says: "With AGS Import Advantage service, the single source solution means the importer and their customer enjoys seamless integration of every element in the import supply chain--from tracking of purchase orders and pick up at point of origin to final destination in the U.S."
The service offers importers "hard-to-beat rates" from more than 205 countries, whether they're shipping by land, air or sea, Imbriani says. AGS can provide door-to-door service with its overseas affiliates at the point of origin ensuring all the paperwork is in order. This helps prevent customs bottlenecks and speeds clearance. AGS gives its customers an online freight management system that offers them real-time control and their own web site (myAGS.com) with detailed information.
AGS representatives will visit importers' overseas suppliers to insure that packing and other requirements are in order, as well as giving the importer the exact sailings schedule or the flight number for air shipments.
