Port-Centric Logistics >
Port-centric logistics is becoming increasingly popular in the world of warehousing and distribution. Whether you’re a small start-up company or an established multi-million-pound corporation, you want your goods to arrive safely at their destination and in the shortest possible amount of time. The port-centric method is a fantastic way to ensure this happens every time – and, here at the Graylaw Freight Group, this is something we are now happy to offer all of our customers.
What is port-centric logistics?
Port-centric logistics is a term used to refer to any logistics services that are based at a port. When the goods arrive via sea-freight, rather than immediately transporting them to an inland depot or warehouse, they are stored at the port and distributed at a later date – as and when required.
Essentially, port-centric logistics significantly reduces the number of stages in the warehousing and distribution process and – for this reason – it is the perfect option for businesses who want to streamline their supply chain and deliver products as quickly and professionally as possible. It’s like cutting out the middleman. The goods are unloaded, sorted at the port, and sent straight to where they need to be by lorry or train; ultimately, saving you a lot of time and money.
What are the benefits of port-centric logistics?
One of the main benefits of port-centric logistics is that it streamlines the entire process, from start to finish. Shipping containers are unloaded, checked, stored, picked, and distributed from one single location and this leads to a much more efficient supply chain and greater customer satisfaction.
The port-centric approach also allows unnecessary freight miles to be avoided. Goods are simply stored and distributed from the port, there’s no need for them to pass through a central depot first, and this has a positive effect upon both the environment and the cost of the overall service.
