Why Outsourcing Global Logistics Can Be Beneficial
To be successful in this globalized economy, companies are challenged to maximize margins. Lack of expertise and understanding of what it takes to move goods across the world can impact the bottom line. Outsourcing aspects of your global supply chain can:
- Alleviate costly delays from lack of experience
- Avoid implantation of costly procedures
- Allow you to focus on your strategic business decisions
A global logistics solution is more complicated in nature than local solutions, and it requires partners with experience and reliability. The key to a successful global logistics plan is being efficient and effective. Hiring a third-party logistics coordinator with experience and know-how is also critical.
Things to Consider when Hiring a Global Logistics Supplier:
- Quality of Transportation infrastructure
- Efficiency of clearance process
- Ease of arranging competitively priced shipments
- Competence and quality of logistics services
- Ability to track shipments
- Timeliness of shipments
Gallagher Transport has a deep and thorough knowledge of legal and logistical requirements on customs and logistics. Our helpful and knowledgeable team members are available to help you with the entire process from foreign origin to the U.S. destination.

Transportation & Logistics Management
While determining the mode of transportation is one aspect of your Global Logistics plan, there are many other decisions that need to be determined including:
- Importing and Exporting Regulations
- Assisting Freight Damage Claims
- Working & collaborating with other executives within the supply chain
Gallagher Transport’s team of experts will work with you every step of the way.
Modes of Transportation
AIR – When you require fast, reliable and personal service Gallagher Transport is there for you. We have arranged the smallest amount of freight to the maximum, including full air charters with complete door to door service. We will meet your time challenges.
OCEAN- Gallagher Transport can provide planning and consultation services, assisting with incoterms, cost analysis, terms of sale and letters of credit advice. We offer our clients the options of LCL and FCL shipments, transit loads, reefer loads, heavy loads, RO/RO and break bulk services.
LAND – Most air and sea shipments still involve land or ‘ground’ shipping as ground transport is required to take the cargo from its place of origin to the airport or seaport and then again from the port of entry to its final destination. Gallagher Transport specializes in these kinds of door to door shipments.
