International Shipping

Roughly 90% of world trade is carried by the international shipping.  Without shipping the import and export of goods on the scale necessary for the modern world would not be possible.

Ocean based trade continues to expand, bringing benefits for consumers across the world through competitive freight. Thanks to the growing efficiency of shipping,  the prospects for the industry’s further growth continue to be strong.

There are over 50,000 merchant ships trading internationally, transporting every kind of cargo. The world fleet is registered in over 150 nations, and manned by over a million seafarers of virtually every nationality.

For international freight forwarders and shippers alike, shipping internationally could be a complicated process. Moving product across borders always involves a complex mix of carriers, modes, and regulations.

What makes International shipping difficult

Rules and Regulations

Even the simplest international shipment requires the understanding of at least two countries’ import/ export regulations. It can also involve multiple currencies and carriers within both. Managing these issues is part of the value customs brokers, freight forwarders, and NVOCCs provide to shippers. Not adhering to rules and regulations will at best result in delivery delays, at worst there will be additional fines and a bunch of other costs. Needless to say, to cut through these challenges working with logistics providers who have expertise in your foreign markets is important.

Transit Time

The choice of transit time will impact international transportation costs. But, its effect is often magnified several times. For example, the difference between shipping a full load between the east and west coasts of the U.S. can run from 3-4 days with a truckload carrier and up to 9-12 days with intermodal. Ocean cargo transit time from Asia to the US can range from 2 weeks to as long as 4 weeks or more depending on the service level. The point? It’s important to budget cost and time correctly to meet delivery due dates.

Freight cost

Ocean rates are constantly changing with ever changing fees and surcharges. along with GRIs and other market factors, keeping ocean freight rates and contracts up to date is almost impossible. Trying to calculate international shipping rates manually with accuracy is never simple. Fortunately, there is technology to support the international shipping process. Working on a single, integrated platform that automates freight rate management is an important first step.

Tracking the freight

Tracking and shipping visibility is always more difficult when there are multiple carriers involved. The longer transit times involved in global shipping must also allow a greater margin of error with ETAs. The main issue is often that most carrier’s systems are not inter-connected so pin pointing a shipment’s exact location is often more difficult. Real time tracking like we’ve come to expect with companies like UPS or FedEx is generally unavailable. Forwarders and carriers operating on a single connected platform are able to provide more seamless tracking and reporting for shippers.

Qualities of a good Employee.

Patient, But Hardworking

Have a “can do” attitude. Ever worked with someone who is always so negative? Do you catch yourself making the same mistake? Have a “can do” attitude. Have the courage and patience to work things out and figure things out even if it sounds very challenging. Bosses trust people who have a “can do” attitude in approaching work.

Detail-Focused

In everything you do, strive to be the best you can be. Take the initiative to ensure things are going right and make sure the details are tied down. Spend time doing what everyone else takes for granted.

Passionate

“Those who perform, love what they are doing.” They know each step, and that each detail builds on another and helps achieve the company objective (even if it means routine work). A boss can feel whether employees enjoy their work or otherwise. Someone who enjoys their work will naturally bring their best to work.

Positive

A great employee takes personal responsibility for everything they do. To be a great employee, you must contribute positively to the organization. Take initiatives, give suggestions, or even be the silent hero who solves challenges quietly. That is how a great employee works. They work to help achieve greater goals for the organization.

Social

Having great working relationships across departments and ranks is one of the important great employee qualities. It means you can get a lot more cooperation from the staff to help you get your work done. Your boss will have less people problems, too.

How do I use an outsourcing provider?

How do I use an outsourcing provider?
OutsourcingThe answer is: it is up to you. Some organizations choose to completely outsource their procurement departments to a dedicated procurement company. However, this is not possible for most customers due to the complexity of their business and the goods/services that are purchased to support it.
Every organization is unique, and there is no single answer that works for any organization.

At www.budgetsource.com we make it as simple as it could be.
Procurement Service Providers can be used in any of the following scenarios: replace your current procurement department, supplement your current resources in strategic or non-strategic product areas, provide electronic tools to make your procurement department more efficient, or simply as consultants for implementing best practices. Keep in mind that you do not have to outsource your entire procurement network, it is usually best to select a target area, and gain top-level support within your organization before contracting with a Procurement Service Provider.

Think outside the Box

We here this phrase all the time. We try to practice thinking outside the box but we really can’t. We are emotionally attached to our business that we can’t make it happen.
That is where hiring an outside consultant comes in handy, They are able to look at your business from the outside and see what you can’t.

It is always worth a try

Why Outsource?

Outsourcing allows organizations to focus on their core business and can create an advantage by reducing operational costs.

The good thing about outsourcing is you can outsource an entire function or only a part of it.

A company might outsource The IT portion of marketing yet keep the personal day to day contact in-house.

This can provide an organization with a good balance of on-site support for employees.

Organizations use outsourcing as a strategy to improve customer service, quality and reduce costs.

Outsourcing can be a permanent or temporary arrangement to bridge the gap in staffing, to learn better quality techniques or improvement of faulty product design.

When looking for outsource opportunities, an organization should look at potential areas of need  and each component within that area to determine if part or all of that function should be outsourced.

 

Why Outsource Employees

Quoted from HH Staffing:

Advantages of Outsourcing for Job Placement

  • Cost- While outsourcing your staffing needs won’t be free, the cost can be significantly less than the cost to hire and train a new employee yourself. You don’t have to pay for advertisements or put on hold the work your managers are doing so they can help you sort through applications. You don’t have to waste days of work so you can interview potential employees, and you don’t have to spend additional money training them for the position. A job placement agency will quickly find the individual you need for your staff, make sure they are trained, and put them to work as quickly as possible.
  • Flexibility- If you have a mountain of work to get to this week for a client, but aren’t sure if you will have any work at all the following week, you aren’t going to want to hire a permanent employee. You need someone who will fill a temporary job placement void for your current work, but whom you don’t need to continue to employee after the work is done. This is where outsourcing your staffing needs is extremely beneficial. You can hire someone through a job placement agency to help you temporarily, so you can fulfil the current needs of your clients, without worrying about continuous employment.
  • Talent- Whether you need temporary staffing or full time employment, outsourcing is the best way to locate employees who are talented, have the skills needed to help you on your road to success, and the training necessary to perform their job correctly. Outsourcing with a job placement agency allows you to find these individuals quickly, without having to wade through a pile of applications.
