Southco picks DHL as its sole global logistics provider
Aug 16, 2016: DHL Global Forwarding picks Southco, a global source for engineered access hardware solutions, as its sole global logistics provider.
The company renewed their existing contract with DHL for four more years for a combination of air, ocean, domestic and customs brokerage services on various trade lanes.
Southco currently uses DHL Global Forwarding to ship a variety of its latches, hinges and engineered access hardware products between its 17 engineering and manufacturing locations in the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific.
DHL transports Southco's access hardware products via ocean freight and via DHL's Less-Than-Container Load (LCL) solution.
In Europe, the company uses DHL's road freight to move its finished products from its manufacturing plant in the United Kingdom to continental Europe.
"Since 2009, Southco has worked with DHL Global Forwarding as a result of our competitive pricing, global presence and ability to make their life simpler through our dedicated group of experts in each one of the markets in which they ship to and operate from," said Tim Robertson, vice president of Marketing and Sales, Global Forwarding, US.
"With DHL Global Forwarding's presence in the markets where we operate, it has helped us minimise or avoid unnecessary disruptions to our supply chain during any type of natural disaster or major event. DHL Global Forwarding also provides us with a global point of contact along with regional points of contacts in all regions where Southco operates, providing us day-to-day updates of our shipments and how we perform against our key performance indicators," said Paul Smith, director, Global Supply Chain, Southco.
