SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 1 November 2021 - Leading
global logistics service provider Rhenus has announced its Cross-border
Trucking Consolidated Service (CBT) to cater to customers in the South Asian
markets. This builds on its extensive portfolio of services, currently
available in the SAARC markets, including air and ocean freight, road freight,
customers brokerage and warehousing.
CBT offers reliable transit time as
opposed to ocean freight rollovers and provides door-to-door shipment. The
seamless integrated IT enabled services allow continuous visibility to facilitate
real time decision making. Whether it is to carry your project machinery or raw
material to the clothing sector or food products, CBT from India to Bangladesh,
Nepal and Bhutan makes for a perfect cost saving solution.
Especially suited for handling
varied requirements, such as oversized, high-value and sensitive cargo, it also
includes customs clearance in all countries. Shipments are secured using the state-of-the-art
features such as air suspension trailers with smart locks, GPS and CCTVs to
capture and monitor the shipments' journey. Procedures and documentations for highly
specialised goods, such as chemicals and integrated IT-enabled services.
"The introduction of CBT will allow us to offer the
fastest, safest and most cost-effective transport solution to support
intra-SAARC trade in the entire supply chain. Our expertise will allow us to
identify the shortest routes possible, and carefully manage resources. As we
continue to see a shortage of ocean containers in the region, this will provide
a viable alternative that lowers cost and risks, satisfy customer requirements,
give complete visibility, and contribute to a better environment," said Mr.
Parikshith Arya, Jt. MD, Rhenus Logistics India.
