MACHINERY & SPARES
ECX Global Logistics represents shippers and consignees in the automotive, aerospace and general machinery industries.
Automotive parts come in all shapes and sizes, but what is important is that they be in a factory or staging warehouse when the manufacturer or component provider needs them there. Just In Time manufacturing and production lines are very fragile, and the penalties for shutting down a line cost tens of thousands of dollars or more per minute.
The complexity of vehicle parts classification requires a company with knowledge and experience. A logistics company must understand the classification requirements, whether or not there are additional duties due for antidumping or countervailing duties and if a declaration must be made to a government agency that regulates vehicle safety.
Aerospace encompasses high-value, highly sensitive parts for aircraft, satellites and other conveyances. These items also have additional regulatory burdens for product safety or export controls between countries because of the complex technology. Aerospace is often critical in delivery for an aircraft on the ground.
ECX Global Logistics has built industry teams around the ability to respond rapidly and accurately and these skills are in everything that we do for all of our clients.
