Road freight logistics : Bolloré, new road freight service

May 10th, 2016

Bolloré Logistics recently introduced its new road service from Singapore to Bangkok, Thailand. The key objective is to offer customers the fastest door-to-door transit time for Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) cargo on a weekly basis. 

This new service uniquely compliments our already existing set of transport and logistics offers and will especially serve sectors such as retail, aerospace, or healthcare. The twice-weekly departures and the speed of the service (3.5 days door-to-door delivery) at a very competitive price make this service almost thrice as fast the traditional LCL, and very comparable to the airfreight door-to-door transit time, while at a reduced cost.

Security System

The cargo is transported via secured vehicles equipped with GPS tracking systems. The vehicles are also under the supervision of a 24/7 command center, CCTV integrated with GPS installed inside the containers. Also taking automatic pictures once the container’s doors are opened, those will be sent in real time via GPRS network to the server.

Equipped with enhanced security features such as an E-lock security mechanism located inside the container door, an immobilizer, a panic button, hearing-in devices, and alarm buzzing, our customers’ cargo is safe and secure. Furthermore, the E-lock security mechanism can only be locked and unlocked by SMS, barcode scanner, or a unique keypad.

IT Features

This service also offers full traceability with the Proof of Delivery (POD) inputted directly in our system: LINK, bringing customers full visibility and control over their shipments. 

Value-Added Services

Bolloré Logistics’ value-added service options at Bangkok’s warehouse before delivery include features allowing the cargo to be cleared directly at our Bonded Container Freight Station (CFS) facilities in Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia in order to avoid customs blockage and delays at the border and to  facilitate lift-on, lift-off (LOLO) & customs issues.

“We are excited to offer this new service to our customers. With regular shipments and LINK’s full traceability out of Singapore, this service is a very attractive offer,” states Franco Montalbano, TSL Worldwide Director at Bolloré Logistics.

“This is a great solution for customers looking for an alternative which is both faster than LCL ocean shipments and cheaper than regular airfreight shipments,” adds Yves Laforgue, Director for South East Asia at Bolloré Logistics.
