Bolloré Logistics recently introduced its new road service from Singapore to Bangkok, Thailand.
Bolloré Logistics suggests that the key objective is to offer the fastest door-to-door transit time for Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) cargo on a weekly basis. The service will feature twice-weekly departures and will take about 3.5 days for door-to-door delivery. This speed is almost three times as fast as the traditional LTL transit time, and very comparable to the airfreight door-to-door transit time, but at a reduced cost.
The cargo is transported via secured vehicles equipped with GPS tracking systems and other security features, like automatic pictures once the container’s doors are opened, e-lock security mechanism located inside the container door, an immobilizer, a panic button, and hearing-in devices. Bolloré Logistics also offers options for cargo to be cleared directly at their Bonded Container Freight Station (CFS) facilities in Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia in order to avoid customs blockage and delays at the border and to facilitate lift-on, lift-off (LOLO) & customs issues.
“We are excited to offer this new service to our customers. With regular shipments and LINK’s full traceability out of Singapore, this service is a very attractive offer,” said Franco Montalbano, TSL Worldwide Director at Bolloré Logistics.
“This is a great solution for customers looking for an alternative which is both faster than LCL ocean shipments and cheaper than regular airfreight shipments,” adds Yves Laforgue, Director for South East Asia at Bolloré Logistics.
