DHL has launched Logistics Without Borders, a supply chain solution that connects suppliers, carriers, and end-users on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. The solution provides companies that are shipping across the border with one-stop access to the tools, expertise, and services necessary to simplify the process and ensure shipments reach their destinations securely and on time. It leverages the expertise of DHL's Global Forwarding and Supply Chain divisions.
Logistics Without Borders includes a wide range of services in transportation, U.S. and Mexico customs and brokerage, bonded warehousing, transport management and cross-docking, and systems and document management. Companies can also choose to have DHL provide intra-country extended services, such as in-plant services, vendor managed inventory, and supply chain analysis and design. The Logistics Without Borders network also includes dedicated competency centers staffed by DHL customs and supply chain experts.
The solution also addresses the supply chain fragmentation that can occur at the border when handoffs are made to multiple providers and the company does not have complete oversight of the process. The Logistics Without Borders network is backed by an integrated information technology platform that offers a single chain of custody and delivers complete visibility of every item in the supply chain. This results in greater shipment reliability, product security, and on-time delivery. It also allows users to hold smaller levels of safety stock, which results in lower inventory and better support for just-in-time and lean manufacturing processes.
