We Can Push Or Pull

In the logistics world of perishable goods, there are two methods for distribution that have their own pros and cons. To “push” product to the market, a company produces an estimation of quantities based on previous market demand and looks to logistics to minimize the amount of waste through timely delivery and excellent forecasting. LA 24-7 Forwarder can work with this model by helping you assess and estimate the process for more accurate fulfillment prior to order placement.

To “pull” a product to market, companies distribute based on orders as they are placed. In this case, LA 24-7 Forwarder can maximize your access to otherwise limited capacity on shipping containers using the best in distribution management technology.

Our Error Margins Are Low

Especially when dealing with fresh produce, or even seafood, the margin for error is very low. This is due to the sensitivity of these foods to fluctuations in temperature, as well as their rapid cycle of decay. LA 24-7 Forwarder understands that, in these cases, the challenge to get it perfect makes it exponentially more important to have an accessible logistics network. That is where we set ourselves apart from the competition.
