Before implementing this program, the client was purchasing new tools rather than reusing available existing ones and so realized annual savings in excess of $3 million. Tool utilization also improved. Paperwork issues that had previously delayed shipments ceased as the OIA team ensured that packing lists, invoices, and certificates of origin were in order for quick customs clearance.

    “Rest assured” when OIA Expedite handles your critical and time-definite shipments.

    Managing supply chain variability and complexity as fast and efficiently as possible often demands a premium-level, day-definite service. It requires a team of logisticians that can orchestrate a response plan, mobilize transportation resources, then execute at the drop of a dime. Enter OIA Expedite.

    OIA’s “control tower” approach utilizes a dedicated team that oversees your expedited shipments, synchronizing the right service providers to get the job done on-time. Partnering with airlines, cartage and linehaul providers, and motor freight carriers spanning North America and beyond, OIA Expedite analyzes least cost/best routings, and develops the right time-definite solution.

    Part of the challenge is understanding shipper and consignee need and deploying an appropriate mode combination with speed, security, and economy in mind – whether that means using day-definite truckload or less-than-truckload to reduce costs by optimizing market capacity or putting an urgent shipment on the next flight out.

    • Securing transport clearances from country and regulatory bodies on time.
    • Obtaining lifting and securing certified equipment to ensure the safety of the personnel involved and the equipment itself.
    • Sourcing qualified and trained personal at remote locations.
    • Ensuring lifting and securing arrangements are being planned and agreed upon in advance to facilitate the works ahead of the operations.
    • Environmental changes and unforeseen circumstances requiring plan adjustments during execution.
    • Co-ordination and sequencing of multiple contractors throughout the operation.
