Smart work wins renewed contract for NDO

[ May 12, 2014   //   ]

Norbert Dentressangle Overseas, the freight forwarding arm of the French-owned logistics operator, has renewed its contract with tablet and notebook computer and computer motherboard maker, ASUS.

The company appointed ND’s US freight forwarding business, NDO America in 2011, to manage the ocean freight of product from four production facilities in China to the US, and the onward distribution of products to ASUS’ US customers – with up to 25 containers of finished product shipped each week. NDO introduced a range of improvements, including negotiating better schedules and more flexible and cost-effective carrier agreements, relocating the port of entry from Oakland to Long Beach and establishing a dedicated port-side handling facility, cutting time to market significantly and improving on-time deliveries.

ASUS has since extended the partnership with Norbert Dentressangle to include the management of air freight out of its manufacturing plant in Chongqing.

ASUS is amongst the first customers to benefit from Norbert Dentressangle’s implementation of SAP’s transport and event management solutions, providing end-to-end visibility of air and sea shipments, along with all associated commercial and operational documents.
