Unitrans is now a transport sub-contractor to the US Army and Navy Services. We provide the transportation of military machinery to domestic military defense installations via domestic trucking and through imports from the UK. The domestic machinery is staged at the military installations for the delivery to war zones. The military awarded Unitrans as a sub-contractor over other competitors due to their satisfaction with the personalized customer service and detailed follow-up that Unitrans provides.
The U.S. Congress mandated on August 1, 2010 that 100 percent of air freight shipped on passenger flights, both from and within, the United States will be screened Please be assured that Unitrans is ready to fulfill this requirement for your domestic transit and U.S. export shipments, and has been operating under similar screening requirements for some time. Our air freight screening fees are 15-25 cents per Kilo.
The new screening regulations will not impact our scheduled domestic air operations, so we can assure you of our ability to offer on-time delivery of your overnight and/or second day air shipments to major cities across the USA. Our transport solutions offer you the ability to tender your freight in a manner that best suits your business requirements.
Be assured, that Unitrans is ready and fully able to comply with the new screening rules, and in the process is able to provide the service integrity and consistency on which you depend and deserve.
With going green at the forefront of everyone’s mind, “green logistics” of lowering the carbon footprint is equally a priority for supply chain executives!
Both an increase in global environmental awareness and greater regulatory and governmental pressures has combined to leverage companies into reducing their carbon footprints. In Europe, “green legislation” is becoming a reality and eventually will in other countries.
One of the biggest carbon footprints is created through the supply chain and logistics operations in its production, storage, and transportation of goods.
Therefore executives are rightly being forced to examine their approaches and respond accordingly. Additionally, long-term competitive strategy is a primary concern and going green has become a crucial consideration towards achieving their goal of creating and advertising environmentally friendly supply chains.
There are three main challenges for the industry to overcome if green logistics is to become a reality.
- Lack of appropriate technology in place to support companies in their effort
- Lack of business processes needed to capture the data and use it effectively
- The trade-off between green requirements and lean practices lending to smaller shipments rather than bundling.
The supply chain going green is an industry issue that is only going to increase in stature.
We at Unitrans are committed to going green. Among many simple considerations we make are: reducing truck idling to save fuel and transmissions, recycling the use of packaging materials and shipping paper and metal products to a recycling company, and turning off lights in areas of the company that are not currently in use.
