Quick Solutions

Getting to know our customers is what Coppersmith does best. One client who was using our open cargo marine policy remarked that they were constantly paying cargo insurance premiums but (thankfully) never had a claim for loss or damage. They asked if there was a way that given their excellent track record with the carrier and the durability of their merchandise if we could help them secure a lower rate. Working with the insurance underwriter, we secured a specific rate for the client based on their trade lanes, commodity and carrier choices. Together with our insurer, we delivered a tailored, money-saving solution to a company who took their part of the supply chain seriously as well.

70 Years of Experience

A client who was transitioning from a distributor model to a direct fulfillment model approached Coppersmith to ask how we could assist them in this transition. The client was already using our freight forwarding and Customs brokerage services, so we had full visibility and a complete breakdown of their cargo down to the SKU level. Working together, we identified the best geographic locations nearest their clients to take advantage of short transit times and the reduced costs they offered. They connected their e-Commerce system to our warehousing system, allowing us to receive orders and ship on their behalf. The savings yielded low double-digit growth in the first year of the program.
