TRANSPORT & LOGISTICS
Whether you need a one-time international shipment or warehousing and ongoing supply chain management, you’ve come to the right place. Kilgore International offers a variety of services to help you make your business a success.
We provide air and ocean freight forwarding, expedited ground freight services, customs brokerage, logistics and other specialized services like facility management, charters, reverse logistics and assembly and distribution. We are the proverbial “one-stop shop” for any transportation or shipping need.
Kilgore International is an expert at getting your freight in the air and on its way. As a full-service global freight forwarder we have years of experience working with our airline partners to make sure you meet your air freight deadlines. North America or international, over-sized or overweight, we know the ins and outs of booking freight on aircraft in the most economical and efficient way.
We are IATA licensed and offer a variety of service levels, ranging from charter flights and consolidations, to next-day, second-day and three-to-five-day to meet your specific project needs or budget. The sky’s the limit for your air freight options!
If your business includes international shipping, you have customs regulations to consider. Kilgore International helps reduce that stress by making sure all rules and regulations are followed as we move your freight across the border. We are licensed by the U.S. Department of Treasury, C-TPAT certified and our licensed brokers understand tariff schedules and government agencies. We save time and reduce delays by interfacing electronically with Customs and offering remote location filings (RLF) for any port.
Our proactive approach includes securing documents in advance of freight arrival to help speed Customs clearance. In addition to licensed brokers at key port service centers, we also offer a full range of integrated logistics solutions to support your business: transportation, warehousing and distribution, order fulfillment and other options to manage your inventory.
From NAFTA compliance, duty/tax recovery and valuation to specific product requirements, our experts can guide you through the complexities of the Customs process.
Expedited Ground Freight
From a single box to a full truckload, you can trust Kilgore International to pick up and deliver your freight on-time, damage-free and within your budget.
Our staff is experienced with truckload and less-than-truckload freight, heavy hauls – even hazardous and petroleum products. With access to virtually any equipment and an expansive network, we offer customers responsive service, freight tracking through our EZ Commerce Center and peace of mind. Tell us what you need and we’ll put together a custom ground transportation plan to meet your timeframe and cost requirements.
Simply put, logistics is ensuring that the right items are in the right place at the right time. Kilgore International has been doing it “right” for its customers for decades and considers it a privilege to handle important logistics tasks for its business partners. Whether you need us to design innovative solutions for your business, plan, coordinate and execute a one-time project or provide ongoing management through warehousing and distribution, we are more than ready to take the reins.
Our first-in-class logistics management includes information technology, facility management and transportation services. We offer a complete end-to-end supply chain solution that gives you a competitive advantage. From pharmaceutical to consumer products distribution, we can design a just-in-time supply chain that helps your business grow and thrive.
As a Non-Vessel-Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC), we have long-standing relationships with ocean carriers which allow us to negotiate competitive rates for our customers and frequent sailings to and from major ports of call. Fast transit times, convenient consolidation points and twice weekly consolidations help us move your ocean freight quickly and reliably. You can even speed up or slow down your deliveries and supply chain with Dynamic Routing, which is Kilgore’s unique service that provides flexibility to adjust ground, air, and ocean transportation modes to accommodate changing inventory needs – even if shipments are en route.
Kilgore International offers much more than just freight forwarding. We can help you with any transportation or logistics challenge, providing you with specialized service options, flexibility and experience to make any project – whether one-time or ongoing – a success.
