Freight Shipping- Houston Co Sees HJ Heinz Chart New Path

Pack n send continually monitors trends in the shipping industry.  While watching these trends, every once in a while we notice companies that are not following the current trend, but are charting their own course in the business world.

HJ Heinz is one of the companies planning ahead for their future.

HJ Heinz has taken an unprecedented step in the logistics industry by hiring Cevas Logistics to handle all of its ocean freight requirements for the next five years.  At the current time, H. J. Heinz ships around 60,000 containers per year. The Handy Shipping Guide first noted this deal back on August 30, 2012.

Why does this move raise eyebrows? Businesses are usually wary of delegating all of their trade to one major partner. Due to unforeseen circumstances, it is usually wise to have a back up company that can handle business in case of either labor disruptions or other occurrences.

While looking at this arrangement, it looks like a win, win situation for both parties.

Cevas has landed one of the giants in the food industry. H. J Heinz has a committed company to deal with scheduling, logistics and a supply chain system for the next five years. H. J. Heinz has chosen an outside company who is already good at logistics. Smart companies now outsource tasks that are not within the companies’ main business. H.J. Heinz has taken a bold task in outsourcing that should pay off for them for many years to come.
