Cross-border logistics requires expertise and visibility, especially when it comes to large volumes and consumer goods. Each country has its own laws, regulations and formalities, and transport must be carefully planned to avoid delays or unforeseen events. Complexity and costs increase when multimodal transport is added to the equation.

When it comes to consumer products, many players and suppliers are concentrated in the same geographical area, covering several countries. While products can be made and used in the same region, they are also often shipped to different destinations.  Complex cross-border logistics must therefore be put in place to meet time, cost, and speed-to-market objectives.

GEODIS handles multimodal and cross-border transport in many regions around the world, such as Europe, China and South East Asia, the USA and Mexico. We provide flow tracking from overseas warehousing in good storage conditions to global shipping operations. Thanks to our fully-integrated IT solution GeoFlow, you can keep an eye on all operations and shipments in real time.
