In addition to cargo arriving on-time and intact, there is another expectation most every customer has of their 3PL partner and freight forwarder: value.
Every day, your Approved team is looking for ways to increase the overall value you enjoy from our services.
For example, suppose you’re shipping FF&E from the mainland to Hawaii. Some companies will simply offer you a container for price X, whether you use all the space in that container or not.
But at Approved, your project manager will present a wide array of options that ensure you’re not paying for shipping space you’re not going to be using.
Perhaps consolidating your goods with other cargo in an LCL (less than container load) shipment would be best? Or we can store goods until you have a full container load? Maybe you need timely pick-ups and have a tight delivery window? More ways to ship and store cargo means more ways to uncover value for our customers.
And with Approved, you will also enjoy value by using one 3PL partner from start to finish. In many cases, it’s the same basic team that’s transporting your cargo from pickup at its point of origin to delivery at its final destination. That means improvements in reporting and communication, reductions in handling and, therefore, shipping times and costs, and increased value.
At Approved, “value” is more than just a number. This company was built on a simple set of values: in every Approved workplace — from the executive offices to the loading docks — the goal has always been to create an atmosphere conducive to building trusting and loyal relationships, with each other and with each and every customer.
Our focus on transparency in our pricing, processes, and policies supports these values and is a cornerstone in helping Approved become, and remain, a world-class freight forwarding and logistics company.
And that’s what creates The Approved Experience…
