Simplifying Your Global Shipping Needs - E-Procure - An American AirSea Cargo Approach.

As the world continues to be a global village, the need to simplify international transactions, both commercial and personal is now at the forefront of the needs of individuals and businesses. Transactions such as shipping, online shopping and transfer of goods and services keeps growing from one end of the world to another, and success of any business now depends of effective and simplified supply chain. When in 1995, the Internet pioneer Amazon.com began doing business, local and international market analysts predicted a day when people would sit back all day in their respective homes and offices, relying on their computers and online shopping systems to order for everything they desire. The online and simplified systematic approach of solving consumers’ market needs have greatly reduces the relative risks, complexities and high costs of travelling from one country to another to procure goods. People travel from countries in Africa, and all over the world to purchase and import goods from major manufacturing countries like United States of America, China UK or other foreign Countries. Combined with the easy availability of Visa and Master Cards, the majority of the consumers in the society are now beginning to see little or no reason of going out to designated shopping Centers/Malls let alone embarking on a tedious journey to another country to buy items they may need.

In most cases,people would need to buy and ship goods internationally either for business purpose or for personal use. The best way to simplify the complexities of shopping and shipping from a country like Unites States, China and UK is to hire a shipping company that can give you comprehensive services to that regard. Over the past three years, American AirSea Cargo has proved itself to be a leader by rendering efficient, cost effective and robust services required to meet the needs of the small consumer as well as mega corporations. All this has been achieved with a new innovative scheme called E-Procure that has solved the needs of all of their customers.

The E-Procure method allows customers to get their own international address in the USA, UK or China with an accompanying Unit Number that is used to identify all their packages as it arrives their warehouse. Hence this address is used as their shipping address in making purchases from stores and companies in US, China and UK. An E-Procure account also allows online monitoring and follow-up of the packages to their assigned address. The customer can shop from multiple stores all over these countries and have their items delivered to their either US,UK or China address as provided, while the American AirSea Cargo conclude the remaining logistics and ships the items to the customer anywhere in Nigeria. In each of their warehouses, well trained and dedicated warehouse personnel are stationed to receive packages, updating the status of the goods/items upon arrival and shipping out. All these are geared towards ensuring efficient and effective service as not seen by any other shipping company.
