Logistics serves the lifeblood of a company by making sure its essential products get to the customers when they need to. For this reason, it’s paramount for any importer or exporter that they have a partner that understands and specializes in doing this right. A major reason why a logistics partner matters is that there’s nobody better able to navigate a complex industry to find the most effective cost reduction strategies than a company that knows the industry. By working with a partner like J.M. Rodgers that has partnerships to provide the best possible pricing globally on different modes of transportation can mean a big difference in the profitability of a shipment.

A well-experienced broker and logistics firm can help importers and exporters reduce their risk by ensuring things are done right the first time. If Customs regulations are not properly adhered to on imports, misclassifications and incorrectly filed documents can mean headaches and fines later on. For exporters, sending the wrong product to the wrong person can have serious implications- and we at J.M. Rodgers can be your backup to reduce your risk.

Dealing directly with carriers can be a taxing experience for a company trying to manage its own logistics and that’s why you need a logistics partner. Large airlines and steamship carriers often have little in the way of direct customer service, and so an individual importer attempting to interface with them will often be frustrated by the experience. A major part of our commitment to customers at J.M. Rodgers is making sure we’re providing clear and courteous service to our clients, so there can always be a person who can provide updates and information on the status of shipments.

Logistics is a complex business with thousands of moving parts, and making sure that shipments leave and arrive at their destinations with consistency is a challenging prospect for any company. The ability to adapt and be flexible, along with good old-fashioned hustle, is a hallmark of how JM Rodgers operates. We’re able to ensure we use our deep knowledge of the industry to solve problems as they arise and make sure that the product arrives without delay.
