Since our XLERATE product is a CFS-to-CFS service, this allows our freight
forwarding customers to avoid the requirement of clearing cargo in Los
Angeles and arranging an expensive less-than-truckload (LTL) delivery from
Los Angeles to the door of their customers located in the central and eastern
part of the US. Having the final-mile in local hands builds flexibility in cases
where the normal delivery process has changed.

towards covering all transport modes in
every region of the world and has been
launched in a phased manner with FCL
