A ‘trade lane’ specifically refers to the established routes and pathways that goods follow during import and export activities. In addition, development on routes, global trends, planning of shipments or business as per trade agreement between the said countries, political climate and weather conditions are aspects that influence the effectiveness of Trade Lane Management.
“As a producer or shipper, you benefit from a Trade Lane Management approach from your logistics service provider, as not only the most standard transport is in scope, but also more creative, and thereby sometimes more efficient routes, are explored”, explains Karan Vij, Trade lane Manager at Broekman Logistics.
Logistics wise, a trade lane develops cargo traffic on specific route with expertise on both sides, giving an improved service to customers who are dealing between two counties, ports or airports. It not only focuses on developing new business but also gives opportunity to improve, innovate, find solutions for the existing business. Trade Lane Management is effective when it is strategically planned, well-executed, and adapted to the specific needs and challenges of the international trade routes involved. We believe that effective trade lane management stands as a cornerstone for logistics service providers, we provide the solutions that seamlessly move goods between nations.
