Managed Transportation

Streamline the Shipping Process and Stay Up-to-Date with GSL Technology

You Know What You Need to Run Your Business

You don’t need us to tell you that efficiency, transparency, affordability, and dependability in a carrier is imperative to your bottom line. Whether you’re running a large-scale manufacturing plant or an upstart e-commerce business, you’re dependent on someone who can get your goods where they need to be, when they need to be there, without exorbitant costs.

Wouldn’t it be nice not to worry about transportation partners, shipment routes, tracking, and ensuring your shipment delivers on time? When you partner with Global Source Logistics, you won’t have to worry about a single thing. With years of experience and a network of trusted partners, we’ll help you get your shipment right where it needs to go.

By partnering with GSL, your business will improve logistics and supply chains through increased operational efficiencies, lower logistics network and organizational costs, and improved communication with all supply chain stakeholders.

Some clients may worry that by giving up management, they will lose control over their supply chain, when in fact, the opposite is true. By allowing a third party logistics company to take care of supply chain management, you see lower net costs, better carrier options, and a consistent pricing structure. Additionally, you get the assurance of predictable pick up and delivery times.

Let’s Build Up a Strategic Relationship

The first step is a conversation. Our management team will reach out to you about goals and challenges you face with supply chain and logistics, and we’ll offer you the right solutions for your company’s needs!

After analyzing your current process, from shipment creation to delivery, we’ll offer you the best rates in the market. We have a consistent pricing model for our services, and we’ll work with you to determine which model best fits your business needs.

The third step is to plan. In terms of carrier management, we’ll let you know which mode of transportation will save you the most money, and optimize your loads and routes, both inbound and outbound. By partnering with us, you’ll have full transparency and visibility over the plan.

The last step is to execute. We understand that it’s hard to give up management control over the goods that fund your business. That’s why we use our top-of-the-line technology on every shipment, to ensure successful execution of inbound, outbound, and third party shipment. You’ll have the latest updates on order tracking and tracing, as well as data analysis to help you make informed supply chain decisions in the future. Our team of logistics specialists is dedicated to helping you reduce your freight costs and improve your operational efficiencies. When you succeed, we do too!

It’s an Improvement Process

By allowing us to manage your shipments from A to Z, you also get access to our proprietary Transportation Management System (TMS). Our technology collects and evaluates data to help you identify areas where efficiency can be improved. Through TMS tools, you can predict potential problems and take action to prevent those obstacles from your shipments. On the other hand, when you’re managing your shipments manually, it’ll be near impossible to gather real-time data, and even harder to gain access to accurate data.

You’ll also be able to provide your customers with real-time data and delivery updates, thereby improving your customer satisfaction rating. No customer is happy when their shipment or package is delayed, and they’re especially not pleased if they weren’t sent any updates on delays or cancellations. By partnering with GSL, your business will start to see a larger following of loyal customers. Humans are creatures of habit, and as long as they receive the goods they paid for on-time, they’ll be sure to come back to give you more business.

Working as your partner in freight management solutions, we strategize, design, and implement every shipment that leaves your warehouse down to the smallest detail.
