Warehousing, Physical Distribution & Value Added Services
Well-organized warehousing, physical distribution and value added services form the basis of flawless transport. Nevertheless, these aspects often result in a lack of clarity. When distribution is carried out by one party, for example, and the remaining services are outsourced to other parties. This is why, in addition to your sea freight or air freight transport, you can also rely on Ritra Cargo for these three services. You can now count on a permanent point of contact who is familiar with your situation. This enables us to provide you with the best possible advice. As a forwarding agent in Rotterdam, we organize your transport from A to Z and provide a clear overview of all aspects.
What can you outsource?
To maintain clear oversight, it is convenient to arrange all matters relating to the transport from one forwarding agent. Ritra Cargo makes this possible. With us, you can fully outsource warehousing, physical distribution and value added services.
For an optimal execution of your transport, it is possible to purchase your sea freight or air freight transport together with these services. Opt, for example, for warehousing and physical distribution of your goods. If desired, you can, of course, also make use of our value added services. Read more about our services below.
What is warehousing?
Warehousing is the temporary storage of goods. We unload the goods in clean and secure warehouses with our permanent warehousing partners in Rotterdam or Oudenbosch. We inspect the goods for damage, and we count the cartons. We then ensure that these are placed on pallets. Palletization is carried out in accordance with our client’s specific guidelines, such as sorting according to certain criteria, sealing with a top deck and correct placement of barcodes and stickers. This enables us to offer you complete peace-of-mind from the country of origin until delivery to the (business) address of your choice. This includes your client’s distribution centre, warehouse or address of your end customer.
We can also provide long-term storage of goods. For this purpose, we divert to our warehouse in Oudenbosch (Brabant), to reduce expenses to a minimum. What are your requirements? We will gladly provide you with suitable advice.
What are value added services?
Our value added services literally add value to a product. These are often products for which an error occurred in the country of origin during the final finishing process. This can include incorrect (price) stickers, packaging or labels. Ritra Cargo ensures that these goods are quickly restored in the warehouse in the Netherlands and delivered on time. Examples of our value added services include replacing labels/price tags, re-sticking, composing individual orders and scanning and coding with Pick & Pack.
We also offer value added services in the country of origin. You can opt, for example, for Pick & Pack, the fumigation of containers, online sales in China via the ‘Tmall Global’ platform, Garment on Hanger (GOH) and quality control.
We also excel in customized solutions, such as complete re-work programs. Let us know what your wishes are, and we will arrange it!
What is physical distribution?
After warehousing and any value added service(s), comes the physical distribution. We do this mainly within the Netherlands, but for our customers, we can also realize this within Europe. We deliver within fixed time slots with predetermined rates.
For distribution services, we work together with regular carriers to ensure reliability. Our partners are selected according to flexibility, quality and price. Agreements have been concluded with these carriers in which specifications are stipulated. Outsourcing of assignments may only take place as a single assignment and only in consultation with the client.
