Damco offers more strategic hubs

[ July 14, 2016   //   ]

Dutch-based forwarder Damco has expanded its Hub-in-Transit programme with new locations in the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia and Morocco. The system allows companies to postpone decisions on final delivery date and final destination, by using container transhipment hubs as “decoupling points” in the supply chain. It is of especial interest to companies with limited on-site storage capacity and with large-scale, continuous production. Hub-in-Transit enables them to make full use of carrier free-time by using strategically located trans-shipment hubs as virtual warehouses for goods.
