How DSC helped a major paper products company become smarter about international transportation
Knowing the terms of doing business on a global scale

Facilities in Mexico, Panama, Japan, Canada and the U.K. certainly give a major paper products company a global presence. But, until they partnered with DSC Logistics, they didn't necessarily have the knowledge about international transportation to go with it.

As the company's guide through International Commercial Terms (Incoterms) and various other facets of the international transportation processes, DSC played a vital role in educating them about their contractual obligations to their customers and their governmental compliance responsibilities.

DSC also made the company aware of increasingly stringent regulations imposed by the Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection Agency, and the Animal Plant Health Inspection Service so they could update their systems and their records in order to prevent customs violations.

DSC helped the company manage shipments into Mexico, complicated by that country's very strict laws regarding cross-border shipping.

Our ability to function proactively in the constantly changing international arena was crucial to the major paper products company's international operation.
