Sporting Goods Company
“How much effort do you give?” That’s the tag line this sporting goods company that designs and manufactures motocross, MTB, and cycling accessories, and it’s what drives their passion for the spirit of racing. Sea & Air Global, the company’s freight forwarder, is just as passionate about delivering exceptional service to its own customers.
The bulk of the company's manufacturing is done in China and Vietnam, so there are a lot of overseas containers that come in. Sea & Air Global helps find the best rates and ship times and does all the customs brokerage. The company just needs to tell them when a shipment is ready from which factory, and Sea & Air Global takes care of everything until the shipment gets to their door. Sea & Air Global also helps with domestic road shipments, and finding the best trucking companies at the best rates.
Whenever there’s a product launch, Sea & Air Global will start with the launch date and work backward to ensure the company gets their products on time, and then provides daily updates for every single shipment in transit. “Sea & Air Global goes above and beyond. Having daily visibility is a huge stress-reducer when you’re only weeks away from a product launch date,” said the company's shipping and logistics manager.
The company relies on Sea & Air Global as trusted partner, often getting expert guidance on reliable third-party logistics warehouses, custom codes, duty percentages, and more.
“We’ve worked with other freight forwarders in the past who promised a lot and didn’t deliver on any of it, and it was a complete nightmare. But Sea & Air Global is a tremendous resource for our company and we value the relationship very highly,”
Luxury Home Contractor
This luxury home contractor has been a leader in innovative architectural hard surface design and procurement since 1987, working with architects, contractors, and interior designers throughout the US to provide discerning clients with the residences of their dreams. Sourcing the best of the best marble, tile, and other hard surfaces often means bringing it in from across the globe—including Italy, Spain, Morocco, Israel, India, and other far-flung locales.
The company prides itself in being sticklers for detailed perfection. They have to be. Their high-end clientele has high expectations of quality and timelines. And because everything is custom, there’s no inventory on hand and no room for error—when it comes to design projects, a delay in the hard surface can put the entire project deadline at risk. So, it’s a good thing the team at Sea & Air Global are also sticklers for detailed perfection.
“The Sea & Air Global team is top notch. They do everything possible to ensure materials arrive in the condition they need to be in, and they communicate with us every single step of the way so there are no surprises,” said the company's project and logistics manager.
Sea & Air Global has been handling global imports for the company for more than a decade, and handles about two dozen shipments—air freight, LCL (less than container load), and FCL (full container load)—every year. The company specifies when and where a shipment needs to arrive. Because Sea & Air Global understands their business—for example, they don’t want it to go by rail because the more it’s “touched,” the more potential there is for damage—they’ll determine the best way to make it happen at reasonable costs. And then they’ll communicate throughout the entire process, providing regular updates so the company can confidently answer clients’ questions and meet their expectations.
“Clients come to us because of our value-added service. But we can’t provide that if we’re not getting the same high level of service from our broker. With Sea & Air Global, we’re paying competitive prices for extraordinary service,”
