The EDI Background / Evolution / Mantra
When looking at our professional organisation, our partners, friends and customers together should be buoyed by the knowledge that our vast experience in automotive and marine shipping, as well as general freight, has stemmed from the integrity of, first and foremost, a customs broking background in the 1970’s.
International freight networks were developed through the 1980’s so that the customs broker could offer his customers door to door services by air or sea from all the major trade-lanes. Specialist regulatory and handling skills in assisting the automotive industry as well as other related niche markets begun emerging.
Throughout the 1990’s our team continued to grow with overseas partners where relationships and freight volumes were strengthened for the benefit of its customers and with this knowledge and processes evolved to assist further the automotive and marine industries.
The last decade has seen electronic systems management as one of the key issues in remaining relevant in an ever changing freight management environment. Electronic data visibility is paramount to our customers and freight management partners. Through specially developed operating systems, we ensure as much priority be placed with daily inbound freight management and the associated information exchange as the other more obvious verbal and electronic customer service information exchange, customs clearance expertise and final delivery arrangement and account management. This can only be achieved with dedicated people and our strength is measured by those people in our team. With proactive operating skills, we shower our customers with the information and the savvy that they expect to keep them abreast with developments and generally comfortable with our handling along the way from start to finish.
In short and into the next decade, EDI is committed to offer integrity, continuity, innovation and through our experience, challenge procedures from all perspectives. It is only through this successful mantra that we, as your friends and business partners, can seek to continue as an extension of your own businesses.
One of the obvious examples of current innovative processes that will set us ahead of our competition is our involvement here in Australia in the rollout of the R-RAK block and tackle operated metal racking system doing away with wood in container packing. EDI has worked closely with overseas partners and operators all around Australia here to ensure our customers receive the benefits that the R-RAK and the future of automobile shipping bring – the future is now in Australia so contact us for more information – click on the image below to enlarge.
