    In the 4th duty of a good freight forwarder, you mention that a good customer service is very important in handling international logistics. When you say international, where does your company reach? Does it reach the Philippines already? Just asking.. 🙂

    Many companies send their own teams to validate their overseas
    factories, and to make sure those companies are upholding the exporter’s
    own code of conduct. Handling this process internally is expensive and
    time consuming. Your international logistics provider can help by
    validating transparency, consistency and integrity across your
    operations and ensuring that none of your partners are violating your
    firm’s own commitment to social responsibility.
