With ever increasing real-estate cost & overheads, maintaining large scale warehouses in developed markets, creates financial stress to your logistics organization. Through our Offshore Warehousing model, this financial stress can be significantly reduced. This model is entirely supported on our digital logistics platform -- MyHub.
In the proposed model - the large scale warehousing can be shifted, to strategically located In-transit Hub (preferably a free zone in an emerging market, say Middle East) . There are multi-fold benefits in operating under this model.
The off-shore warehouse, through managed Pick & Pack operations can build the load(pallets) specific to stores, factories/WHs. Such loads need not be dis-integrated anywhere up the supply chain till it reaches the consumer viz. stores, factories etc.
Such pallets are consolidated destination country's zone wise and moved as FCLs to the appropriate Ports. This unitized - store/factory specific load building, avoids huge in-land transportation cost which is otherwise incurred in maintaining a national hub and spoke distribution network of warehousing and transportation.
The Pick and Pack operation at the Global Transit Hubs offers great advantages to the business logistics making it lean and effective. At the same time it reduces logistics cost significantly.
Cargo is sourced from suppliers driven by Purchase Orders to the Global Transit Hub. Once the cargo arrives, it gets auto-allocated to the store/factory/customer specific orders. Such allocation generates the Pick lists and drives packing/load building specific to stores/factories/customer locations.
Once Packed, they are consolidated in to full boxes (FCLs) based on the zone of the destination country and are sent to respective Ports servicing them. Further it gets de-stuffed and delivered to stores on local Milk-runs. Thus it works on a de-centralized distribution framework eliminating the huge cost of maintaining a national hub and spoke distribution network of warehousing and transportation.
