The missing link in your supply chain
Most companies are experts in addressing the needs of their customers. And they know what goods need to go where and when. What most companies need help with is simply how to make that happen. That’s where Approved gets involved.
Our team of shipping and logistics experts will develop and manage a plan that meets your exact business needs, and slots perfectly into your existing supply chain management processes. (The last thing anyone wants from their logistics and shipping services provider is an attempt to reinvent the wheel.)Read More
Additionally, logistics undertakings are often specialized within each market, and your 3PL service provider should have experience in your specific vertical market. Having served everyone from government agencies to SMBs, Approved is a horizontal logistics company — we serve all markets and organizations, from a single palette of cargo to a fully loaded steamship container.
Our mission is to optimize your supply chain, from the earliest planning stages to the real-time execution. We have the experience and the teams to deliver a turnkey, cost-effective solution that meets both your current business needs, and sets you up for success down the line.
Logistics solutions for land, sea, and air
With oversight of everything from delivery vans to steamships, Approved will create and execute a diversified transportation plan for your cargo that maximizes your investment and keeps your business needs front and center.
Whether you require the immediacy of air freight, or the cost-efficiencies of ocean freight, or a mix of both with rail and over-the-road transportation included as well, our team can provide both the strategic guidance and tactical execution that ensures your cargo is transported securely and cost-effectively.
Strategic guidance on logistics can extend from very high-level (e.g., insights on best practices) to more hands-on development and execution of your shipping operations with transportation management and distribution. Our experience extends to executing the paperwork and other processes often required by customs houses across the world.
And when it comes to putting your plan into action, Approved is there, too, with decades of tactical experience “in the trenches,” helping move cargo quickly and completely through every step in the supply chain: from warehouse to port, from port to port, port to warehouse, all the way to its final destination.
