Supplying and supporting a distributed workforce can result in a daunting international logistics challenge, whether you’re an expanding mid-size business or the most established of multinationals.
Your Global Logistics Challenges Solved
Managing multinational logistics is a complex business – and it’s definitely not the most profitable way to utilise your workforce. CDW ships hardware and software to over 130 countries, managing the process from procurement, through transportation and final delivery to the customer’s site – wherever that may be.
Comprehensive Supply Chain and Visibility
Combining our international distribution centres, offices on four continents and relationships with local suppliers worldwide, CDW can deliver almost any device or component to any international location. For our customers, this removes the burden of large, expensive stockpiles of components.
- If we don’t already stock a product, we can source it on request
- Package-tracking gives complete visibility of order progress, and allows us to resolve delays before they can escalate into problems.
Seamless Customs Compliance
A maze of customs requirements – import licences, permits and local-language submissions – can create barriers between HQ and satellite offices. We can remove this risk.
- CDW will help guide on permit and license requirements
- Affiliate staff deliver local-language support on the ground in many countries
- CDW is fully customs compliant.
Simplifying your Processes
Procurement: Sourcing from multiple vendors, across multiple territories, adds complexity to procurement, finance and IT. CDW’s consolidated procurement ensures that your teams are focussed on delivering value to the business, not managing multiple invoices.
Distribution: When you’re dependent on parts or products, getting the right items is critical. Our highly accurate distribution system avoids the shipment of incorrect units or quantities.
Configuration: Proper configuration means your team can be up and running, almost immediately. CDW gives this advantage to customers through our specialist Configuration Centres. We’re focussed on making our customer’s international business run seamlessly.
