Nowadays, for all businesses even B2C or B2B activities, having an efficient logistics & supply chain management will boost your business growth and maintain high services level. In terms of international business, logistics & supply chain management, this does not mean only to delivery product within deadline but it covers all steps starting from procurement into international transportation, required documentation for customs at both ends, include a possible storage service, until the distribution to your end customers & buyers.
Accurate & real time Data management is very important for our customers to have full visibility of any movement of products, not only the physical transportation, it must include information such as schedules, documentation, communication as well, to reassurance that all in order and potential hurdles, or disruptions, are dealt with swiftly. BGL’s information technology does just this and have you focus on managing your business!
BGL understands the importance of Logistics Management in your supply chain. For that very reason we have developed 2 state-of-the-art IT Systems to assist in the management and administration of your entire supply chain.
Compliance & Sustainability
The need for legal compliance entered into a new phase after the September 11, 2001 attacks when safety and security measurements were stepped up by all Governments and authorities. More rules needed to be complied too by all stakeholders in the transport of passengers but certainly also for the cargo movements across international borders. One such example is the CTPAT certification by US Customs & Border Protection implemented by November 2001. Fulfilling the requirement enacted by Governments of countries around the world is now part of doing business and to meet the standards of compliance is important for the supply chain of companies doing International business.
At Best Global Logistics Co., Ltd. we consult our customers and partners on the rules and regulations applicable for the origin or destination country related to the documentation and cargo information. Our skilled operations members plan carefully for timely submitting data into the systems such as Advanced Manifest System (AMS) or other such platforms helping your company to avoid penalties or delays at country of destination. To ensure we have constant focus on compliance affairs we nominated one of our management team member to take on the function of Customs, Compliance and Implementation Director.
Compliance is also extreme important when it concerns the correct data entry in the Customs declaration submitted. Choosing the right HS Codes classification is key in Thailand for paying the exact amount of duty and tax as required by the law. Not following this principle a company as importer of record can become eligible to pay hefty fines. Our BGL customs specialist members can advise you for any new product or item you wish to import into Thailand.
When providing consultancy to our customers we feel it is our duty to provide you with a sustainable transport process that meets all modern criteria and assists to avoid unnecessary disruptions. Together we select the transport method that will have the least impact of the environment and global climate.
