Swan & Hercules Global Logistics and Rockfarm Logistics recently announced a strategic partnership to better serve small and midsize shippers with global end-to-end logistics solutions. The companies say the partnership creates an end-to-end logistics solution that combines the strength of both companies to offer small and midsize shippers the opportunity to compete in both total delivered cost and reduction of inventory with their larger competitors.
“We are excited about this opportunity to leverage our collective expertise,” says Sean Burke, senior vice president of sales and marketing for SHGL. “The alignment of cultures – including client focus and committed learning, robust technology and similar market segments – make this alliance an excellent fit.”
Burke will work closely with Brad Stewart, senior partner at Rockfarm Logistics, to offer existing and prospective customers single-source logistics and transportation solutions for international shipments that include China as an origin or destination. Companies that use more than one carrier from the United States to China (or China to the United States) now can streamline the process to ensure customer satisfaction in delivery and cost-effectiveness, especially for shipments containing orders destined for multiple destinations.
“We are now able to provide customers with seamless integration of transportation and freight forwarding between the United States and China, as well as visibility of product through a single technology,” says Stewart. “This alliance will alleviate much of the complexity involved in global shipping today.”
