Sell Locally - Deliver Globally
Our systems make real-time data ubiquitous, consistent, and easy to retrieve.
The global market for specialized freight forwarding and expedited services is extremely fragmented and includes thousands of smaller highly specialized logistics service providers.
The trends toward lower inventories and increasingly-complex industry requirements and the impact of global sourcing in the supply chain are driving shippers to require more time-sensitive, dependable and custom-engineered global logistics service solutions.
We are currently partnering with and “unifying” smaller specialized logistics service companies that provide the highest-value services to shippers.
We believe specialized acumen and broad institutional knowledge are the key, value drivers and the most valuable asset of specialized providers.
Unified is committed to solving the most complex challenges in the logistics industry. By competing with 3PLs (Third-party logistics providers) and integrators, Unified can have a positive effect on its customers and on the industry as a whole.
Unified Companies are specialty services providers and are channel neutral. We can work directly for shippers or as sub-contractors to a 3PL. Any Lead Logistics Provider (LLP) can be assured that Unified will work with them in a collaborative and open manner.
Logistic networks and logistic service providers are designed to deliver solutions and models for predictable, linear and rigid supply-chain networks. Ultimately, they are faced with the reality that real-world logistics demands are not very predictable, or linear, and require flexibility. Manufacturers are under product cost and quality pressure as a result of globalization. To relieve these pressures, they are shifting their operations and production facilities to lower-cost labor and raw material markets, while simultaneously trying to better coordinate their supply and demand chains to maximize their product life cycle. Their ability to make these changes becomes more difficult as they adjust to the new channel demands of the internet and the constant changes coming from their supply chain partners.
Traditional providers of supply chain solutions cannot easily adapt to the changing marketplace as they are burdened with the complexities and costs of legacy-based systems to which process flow changes cannot be easily made, which prevent them from easily providing a solution capable of adapting to the new supply chain model that manufacturers are moving toward in the 21st century.
There is a need and an opportunity for a more intelligent, adaptive and automated approach to empowering logistics that is unfettered by the weight of legacy systems and rigid architectures and rules, and Unified is meeting this need. We believe our proprietary domain expertise and technology platform will drive rapid integration and reduce execution risk, and provide an opportunity to expand our revenues through the delivery of service-specific, web-based offerings.
