CUSTOM LOGISTICS EXPERTS HELPING INTERNATIONAL SHIPPERS

REDUCE RISK AND MOVE AHEAD

 

You are good at what you do, what you make.  As your on-call logistics department, we are good at getting it where you or your customer wants it, one time, undamaged, fully compliant, and cost effectively. 

Geopolitical trends are drastically changing the rules for trade between countries. As new realities for moving products around the world evolve, documentation requirements, costs, and liabilities are increasing. For companies that aren't in the logistics business, learning the ropes of transnational trade costs money and time, while adding points of failure to an already complex process.

Unlike a freight forwarder, Strategic Global Trade Solutions represents shippers, delivering master-level shipping and documentation expertise, enabling our clients to reduce risk while focusing on their own operations.
