& Logistics Consulting
In addition to our brokerage and self-clear importing services, NGB
is often asked by Fortune 500 companies to help them improve the way
they get goods into and out of the country, while still complying
with the many governmental regulations that apply to imports and exports.
Our clients regularly engage NGB Consulting to deliver superior customs
and logistics advice. Our recommendations are always practical, implementable,
and always demonstrate a solid return-on-investment.
Many of our clients use the acquisition of our software
as a catalyst to re-examine their entire logistics process. As part
of this effort they often engage NGB to work with them to identify
and effect order-to-warehouse process improvements. Whether they
license ProImporter or not, we
look at every stage of our consulting clients' import and export
processes and help them to develop plans that make the entire process
better. We can look at their freight, their sourcing strategies,
their level of EDI capability (and that of their vendors), and develop
realistic improvement plans that must show a good return on their
investment. We work with the vendors and carriers of our clients
(many with whom we already have a relationship) to determine how
ready and willing those corporate partners are to provide better
or more timely customs information. Often mistake-ridden manual
data entry processes can be reduced or eliminated, and many of the
goods-clearing activities automated.
While we often run single or half-day seminars for importer
and exporters at our offices, we also go on-site at our
clients to teach them how to import or export efficiently.
We cover permits, classification, documentation requirements
and government payment options, among other things. Our
training sessions can be tailored specifically for your
organization and delivered to up to 20 people at once.
Because many Canadian companies don't necessarily use the
same broker for importing and exporting, their brokers may
not have much insight into what happens to the goods they
import once they get into Canada. This leaves many
companies unaware that they are often entitled to money
back from the government as a result of exporting goods
that were previously imported, either wholly or as raw materials.
NoGlobalBorders will work with you to identify any
such entitlements, and file for the refunds on your behalf.
Because this work is done on a contingency basis,
you only pay us if we find any drawbacks.
