De Well Advantages
De Well leverages its integrated land and international transportation components to service clients on a factory to door basis. This growth comes from supporting clients as they expand into the US or China which has come to be one of De Well’s key fundamental principles; "follow the customer". De Well’s "follow the customer" approach has enabled us to grow as we invest in assets to support our client’s expansion. A case in point is the support we gave a US Importer who had problems with over 300 factories in China. See case study #2 below for the details on De Well’s solution to their fragmented CIF movements.
De Wells light asset approach to our international transportation allows us to provide an integrated solution including warehousing and trucking in China, NVOCC or air transportation and warehousing at the US destination. De Well’s Depot and carrier booking agent business in China provides De Well and its customers with distinct advantages not enjoyed by other NVOCC’s. For example; as a booking agent for the carrier’s in China, De Well is connected electronically with shipping lines providing us with the capability to generate electronic booking confirmations for our customers on line.
