SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
Supply chains are complex organisms that have many moving parts, inputs and connections. In order to operate efficiently and provide companies the chance to grow, it is important to look at places to save money without sacrificing compliance and performance.
Overcharges happen everywhere, this is why ECX’s experienced team of
auditors can audit your air, ocean, truck and warehousing rates to identify inconsistencies and help you work towards a refund where possible.
Air, ocean and truck carriers limit their liability, usually to less than the value of
your cargo. Cargo insurance is a necessity, and our insurance carriers can work with you to provide a customized solution for your commodity, trade lanes and annual values.
Purchase Order Management
When a purchase order is placed days, weeks or months in advance, someone needs to monitor production. As the ship date gets closer, the cargo’s readiness will need to be confirmed. ECX stays in contact with buyers and sellers to keep cargo on time, or provide the earliest notification of a late or missed delivery.
Providing a centralized team to manage the complex multinational movement of a global supply chain is what we do best. Across countries, continents and time zones, ECX monitors 24 x 7 x 365 and reports regularly on statuses and manages exceptions.
Landed Cost Analysis
Combined with binding rulings, contract rates and monitoring currencies, a landed cost analysis helps Controllers and CFOs identify profitability and gross margin for shareholders and to price their product to the marketplace.
As a certified and validated member of C-TPAT, ECX can visit buyer and seller locations to conduct C-TPAT security audits and provide complete reports that can be easily uploaded to the C-TPAT web portal and aggregated as part of a company’s compliance program.
In conjunction with our PO management and traffic control, ECX receives cargo for buyers and consolidate and ship according to their schedule, prioritizing based on criteria they provide that is important to their internal demands.
