How R&S Receives International Freight

Once your goods clear customs, R&S Logistics takes over managing the logistics of transporting your freight to its final destination. Whether it's coordinating trucking, rail, or other transport modes, we ensure seamless import haulage, providing you peace of mind and efficient delivery to your desired location.

We implement cross-docking to maximize payload and reduce shipping costs. This process streamlines supply chains, accelerates international fulfillment, and lowers transportation expenses. This makes it a cost-effective solution across industries to enhance agility and efficiency.

Real-time tracking is vital for overseas shipments, providing visibility and control throughout the journey. R&S Logistics relies on RFID tags for automatic monitoring between facilities, coupled with a cloud-based warehouse management system (WMS) to centrally consolidate data across all locations, ensuring seamless operations in modern supply chains.
