Supply chain disruption and an increasingly demanding consumer have drastically transformed retail supply chain networks. Shifting consumer demands resulted in new store formats, shorter trips, and more frequent deliveries to more places. For the past 40 years, Expeditors has navigated this ever-changing supply chain landscape. We specialize in performing value-added, white glove, and time-definite services to ensure ultimate satisfaction for your customers. These services, in addition to domestic air, ocean, ground, and rail shipments, as well as cross border transportation, are what we call Transcon.

Transcon works with retailers to provide door-to-door solutions for customers and expertise in flawless execution. Some of the metrics which give us incentivization to perform are:

  • Did we deliver on time?
  • Was the shipment visible in our systems?
  • Did we bill accurately?
  • Was the shipment claims-free?
