We all know shippers and freight forwarders have gotten sick of waiting to retrieve time-sensitive cargo from congested West Coast ports.
With Blume Global’s innovative terminal solutions, cargo owners can recover freight from ports quickly and more predictably. Shippers can proactively request priority handling for containers that are then unloaded directly onto a chassis, creating a speedy turnaround for drayage carriers.
This service is only currently available at the Fenix Marine Terminal in the Port of Los Angeles and is just one of the many solutions Blume Global offers geared toward saving ocean shippers and freight forwarders time and money.
