We would love to help you optimise your supply chain

Distribution of merchandise like furniture, windows, doors etc. are demanding processes with numerous stages, checkpoints and often across borders.

Consolidating and cross docking solutions offers less handling, improves predictability for delivery, fewer damages and delays.

We offer a transparent logistics process. The first scan/registration happens when you place the order with your factory, we implement a professional scan and reporting system, serving you with efficient overview and control of your furniture logistics.
