1.Be prepared

“Preparation time and preparing the sections of cargo movement is essential. The biggest thing at the moment especially, is making sure that you are prepared, and that you have your processes for collection and delivery of cargo globally set up before you start doing anything.” Says Paul Uglow, Commercial Manager at Meachers Global Logistics.
As a result of delays in ports across the world, the cost of shipping and transit times have increased. Meachers understands the industry and exactly how this will implicate the goods moving through your supply chain, we can help you to prepare and plan so that you can liaise with and advise your suppliers and your end customers

2. Be clear about customs

It’s our job to make sure we’re brushed up on Brexit, and clued up on customs, so we can provide you with a complete supply chain solution for complete peace of mind. 

If your customs clearance processes are efficient and correct it will ensure a much smoother transportation of your goods. 

We can assist you in your customs clearance paperwork, tariff numbers and duties, and advise about the technicalities of the products that you’re buying and moving.

3. Communicate

Communication is a key factor in the success of any project and here at MEachers Global Logistics we’ll always be on the end of the phone, and always directly contactable by email.

4. Choose the right suppliers 

Try to make sure that you know what you want and when you want it and make your requirements clear to the suppliers of your goods. 

Choose suppliers who adhere to any relevant standards for your industry and have relationships with alternative suppliers to enable a contingency if there is a problem with one of the suppliers in your supply chain.

5. Consolidate

Consolidation can ensure that your goods are moved and stored more efficiently and sustainably. We work with customers with both large and small volumes of goods to move, and we can tailor a solution appropriately according to your specific needs.
