Going Dutch, three times a week
SBS Worldwide has launched a fixed-day airfreight consolidation service from JFK to Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport.
Lars Kloch, CEO for the logistics provider, said, “We see the Benelux region as a key area of growth for our business and have therefore created this service to meet the needs of our clients in the region.
“By offering regular fixed-day services our customers can more accurately plan their supply chain. The service will also enable us to further improve the responsiveness of our supply chain offering, to meet spikes in demand and also keep inventory levels to a minimum by reducing the need for buffer stock.”
The company said the move was a direct response to requests from its U.S. key account customers for whom the Benelux region is a key market for their export goods.
The three-times-a-week service departs from JFK on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and promises origin to destination transit times of from two to three days.
