XLProjects hit a bit of a milestone this week...!

As reported by Heavylift & Project Forwarding Magazine this week our network has gone over the fifty member mark in just eight months. I am very glad to hear this because the last venture I was involved with, GPLN, had only hit 34 members at the one year anniversary mark. We are well beyond that with four months to go for our first year. It is…

While this is not normally worldwide news for people outside the shipping industry, this container ship is said to be carrying 4,500 shipping containers filled with arms headed for Syrian rebels. This has left many people wondering what all of this will mean, not just for worldwide politics, but in the case of …

What Does Door to Door Service Mean?

Some terms in the shipping industry can be confusing for shippers to understand. Door to door delivery seems to be one of them. One of the biggest problems is that companies do not always see that door delivery means to the door, of the warehouse of course. They think that door can mean to their customer’s door which can be true only on a drop ship or direct ship, but they do not understand it to be door. So to clarify, Door to Door delivery…

How Many Containers is a lot for Steamship line Sales?

In the shipping industry, shipping containers are a numbers game. Every year shipping companies renew their service contracts with steamship lines and hope to get better pricing. Maybe they had a higher volume last year or maybe they are shipping from different ports. Not everyone gets the same ocean freight rates to and from the same ports. Some companies…

Global Sourcing

When a company begins looking for a manufacturer for a new business it seems like it would be easier to look locally so that you can see where the product is being build without much travel. The difference in price may quickly become an issue though if you choose domestic sourcing. This is why so many companies have their products made abroad, especially in Asia. Not only are companies in Asia less expensive but they tend to be efficient…

Drop Shipping

Retailers and wholesalers can sometimes have a different view of shipping than those of us in the shipping industry, especially in international logistics. In international shipping, we look at shipping in containers or at least in larger amounts to get the most out of the freight shipping costs. In retail, companies are looking at it from a “products sold” angle. They want to see their products go out the door since the…
