The Client – A world leading supplier of corporate branded merchandise products.

The Challenge:

Our client approached us with a project to supply corporate merchandise packs to over 100 recipients, all private individuals, across the globe on behalf of a tech giant.

The challenge was to manage all local customs & tax requirements as well as deliveries to customer door whilst avoiding involvement from the end-customer.

Some of the locations we were required to serve were very demanding as we had to work across many different local tax regimes and local rules.

Our Solution:

  • We identified all applicable tax and duty requirements per destination country and made local arrangements for these to be fulfilled as required by local law.
  • We liaised with all local destination offices to identify transit and handling / packaging requirements.
  • We used a combination of Airfreight, Road and Courier solutions to provide the customer with the most cost effective process, whilst ensuring delivery was fulfilled on time for the new product launch.

Customer Benefit: 

  • A single source solution with end to end requirements being fulfilled and a central freight billing process.
  • A 100% on time solution to ensure all locations were fulfilled in time for product launch.
  • All local tax requirements were fulfilled and all local customers were satisfied with the tax compliance process.

Supporting the solution design was Horizon International’s Supply Chain team. Horizon’s solutions combine a process-driven approach with operational resources that deliver, so you can free up cashflow, save money, focus on core business activities and importantly, have peace of mind.
