More than ever, companies in every sector of industry are finding that the complexity of transporting goods in the world’s markets requires the expertise of a shipping partner who does far more than book freight on a ship or a truck.

Increasingly, companies are reaching out to new markets and drawing their parts and supplies from distant global partners, who, thanks to the internet, are more accessible.  More firms are building and marketing customized goods, offering just-in-time delivery and seeking to reduce reliance on warehousing parts and supplies that limit space and manufacturing capacity.

These supply chain enhancements often require the expertise of professionals in international shipping and logistics with experience in customs and documentation requirements and on-the-ground supervision to ensure reliability.

Shipments of goods continues to grow rapidly. Studies by the U.S. Department of Transportation tell us that Americans on average accounted for the movement of 63 tons of freight last year – an amount that is more than 50 percent higher than a mere six years ago.

As a result, companies often need the support of a logistics and shipping partner that makes a priority of continually expanding its knowledge of international law, documentation requirements and their peculiarities from one country to another, and looks for ways to ensure that your shipments are safe and that they arrive undamaged, on time and at a fair price.

That is our approach at ICAT Logistics Detroit. Throughout the world, we have people on the ground who will follow your shipment and who can offer support from the time your freight is prepared for transport to the actual delivery.

We ask to know more about your business, your production and manufacturing process and the expectations of your customers so that we can support you in a way that helps you remain ahead of the trends that could affect your success in the international and domestic marketplace.

There is no doubt that your business and ours will continue to be reshaped in the months and years to come.  But we will stay with you, ahead of the curve, so that together we can provide you and your clients with superior freight and logistics services.

We monitor landscape changes in supply chains, as businesses move, expand or diminish their operations and marketing emphasis.  When those changes occur for our clients, the transportation of their freight and our approach to their shipping and logistics needs to change, as well.

We’re your custom shipping resource. Solutions to our customers’ most challenging issues are derived from decades of success in global logistics.
