Axis Global Logistics Expands with New London Facility

July 11, 2012

Axis Global Logistics — a provider of domestic and international transportation , fulfillment and supply chain services — announced that it has opened a new facility in London, England.

Located near Heathrow Airport, this new facility allows Axis to expand its capabilities when it comes to providing supply chain solutions to its domestic and international customers. The London facility joins a network of Axis offices and distribution and warehouse facilities located across the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia. The company also has more than 800 agents worldwide.

"Axis has always been a global company with worldwide capabilities," explained Brian Harvey, Axis' Vice President of National Sales and Marketing. "The opening of our London location is just the latest example of our continuing effort to increase our global footprint so that we can serve our domestic and international customers even better."

The new London facility will directly benefit customers by providing Axis with:

  • Enhanced control of customer freight into Europe through the leveraging of Axis' nightly consolidations into the region—Axis currently runs two flights a night/6 days a week into London.
  • Additional consolidation opportunities that provide costs savings to customers.
  • A gateway to the European ground truck network.

"The added control and responsiveness that our London location will provide directly translates into Axis being able to deliver even better service for our customers in Europe and elsewhere," explained Harvey.

Axis specializes in time-critical shipments that require a high-degree of personal attention which means that the company's new London facility will be able to offer clients with these requirements fast and reliable delivery available through its expedited services. The logistics services available at Axis' London location are part of an overall supply chain solution that the company designs and implements for its customers.

London is a huge business hotspot and Axis expanding up its services there is a really positive move from a business perspective. When supply chain is concerned, we can anticipate many physical movements to be involved within the organisation as cargoes belonging to customers worldwide would be transported to and fro. That is why storage needs to be sufficient to support all the required logistics processes.

In this podcast, World Trade 100 and Amber Road highlight how a comprehensive global trade platform that converges both logistics and compliance costs can deliver true landed cost visibility.
