Over time, the volume of goods being transported on European roads has steadily increased, leading to congested roads, delays, and unnecessary costs. As shippers look to avoid these issues, many are considering short sea shipping as a viable solution.
What is short sea shipping?
Short sea shipping is essentially container movement within Europe, but with a short time on the sea. Short sea shipping is an excellent alternative to road freight. However, it is not a matter of dismantling road transport. It is about environmentally smart alternatives that improve existing supply chains.
What are the advantages of short sea shipping?

Cost savings is no longer the only top priority for companies looking for outsourcing partners. More so, they want a partner who can provide the expertise and knowledge not found in-house. Logistics is a core competency, and also the biggest reason companies choose to outsource their logistics activities: It allows them to focus on their core business. This is precisely what one of our customers did.
In need of a qualified and experienced customs broker
In 2007, an international company, best known for its leading technology in the power, renewable energy, aviation, and healthcare industries, reached out to us. The company was struggling with custom formalities for shipments from China to Latvia. They were in need of a qualified and experienced customs broker that could handle the complex procedures and formalities for their large goods volumes. Together with the company, we looked into the possibilities, and a collaboration was initiated that would turn into a long-lasting relationship.
Logistics as a core competency
In 2018, the company re-nominated us as their customs broker. This time, the scope was a bit wider. Our customer is a large international company with businesses all over the world and large goods volumes that need to be moved across borders. Instead of employing their own logistics experts, they wanted to outsource their customs brokerage to us. Logistics being our core competency, this was a perfect match.
Providing our expert knowledge in customs brokerage
Two of our logistics experts would dedicate their resources exclusively to our customer’s account and work in their name. Thanks to our previous collaboration, we already knew the ins and outs of the company and its import and export requirements. After closing the agreement, including strict disclosure requirements and confidentiality rules, our logistics experts were ready to get to work.
Greencarrier Freight Services took care of customs procedures and formalities, making sure the shipments met all standards and regulations for import and export as well as requirements for customs clearance. We handled all the necessary documentation, duties, taxes, and payments.
Managing the cargo flow from A to Z
In 2020, the company reached out to us once again. They had a similar project in one of the CIS countries and needed our help. However, this time, they wanted us to handle customs procedures and formalities and manage their entire cargo flow from A to Z. This included all transport modes and multiple trade lanes. It also required logistics experts that could speak English and Russian fluently working in international teams.
On March 31st all the heads of Sales of the South Cone (Chile, Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina) gathered in Buenos Aires, Argentina at the South Cone Sales Meeting.
Gisela Alaman, who was recently appointed sales director of the South Cone Cluster, led this first-of-its-kind meeting. It was a great opportunity to meet again after restrictions on traveling and in-person meetings were lifted.
The sales team was able to share results, review the strategies used in each country and learn about others’ ideas and best practices. This provided the opportunity for everyone to strengthen the network between countries.
Due to this the team was able to develop a joint strategy to continue to efficiently work together across the region. Working as one team will assure that clients’ needs are effectively accommodated, as the South Cone countries work as a team.
Since all the heads of sales were together, the team was able to work closely with local clients. The relaxed atmosphere provided an opportunity to share our views and prospects for the near future and allowed them to see the value of a company that truly cares about the customer experience.
Bringing together local clients, helped create a closer bond, and in return, helped clients see the solid network the countries share, ensuring them JAS can provide them with the support they need to make their own businesses better and stronger.
