Business Process Outsourcing
If you see inefficiencies in your current logistics process, Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) allows you to focus on your core competencies while cutting costs and increasing your operations efficiencies.
BPO by definition is contracting a specific business process or operation to a third-party service provider with specialized expertise for a non-core business competency, allowing you to focus on your main business and position in the market.
BPO works effectively in areas such as rating, booking, Import Security Filings, shipment status and location, coordinating offloading and drayage, to name a few. At V. Alexander, our team of subject matter experts proactively handle and provide outsourced solutions in real time through a customized program tailored to your business needs.
By leveraging V. Alexander’s robust technology, deep industry experience, and dedicated account team capabilities in conjunction with the solid processes we’ve developed and refined over decades of experience points to BPO as a solid, cost-effective choice for handling your logistics and documentation needs successfully.
