DTS is taking an active role in assisting shippers with special needs on project cargo loads. As project experts we will provide services that will ensure the most efficient dispatch of our client’s equipment to their operation site. It is our duty to deliver our customers a full commitment to quality and responsiveness, along with the ability to transport any cargo to their location at a competitive price.
Our responsibility is to plan and subsequent monitoring on every project that we start. Our logistics personnel are geared to observe and elaborate different areas that will give our customers more expeditious results.
PROJECT FEASIBLE STUDIES
Meeting with your project managing director and designated suppliers to review materials and equipment needed for transport. We detail any technical requirements and contracts.
RATE CONTRACTS FOR LINERS AND AIR CHARTERS
We file rate contracts with steamship companies and air charters to extend the savings on to you without taking away the ultimate service and precision needed for the charter to proceed.
STORAGE AND WAREHOUSING
Our shipping/receiving warehouse will always be notified on special needs for cargo on a project level. This cargo is taken on a priority basis by receiving, checking and pack immediately for shipping.
TRACKING/EXPEDITING EVERY SHIPMENT
We will notify our customers on the status of every shipment. We will keep track of every material expedited and advise our client’s customers on partials until we get the job done. We will give you up-to-date vessel position reports and airplane gate reports every time we are in transit.
We offer integrated “turn-key” supplier-to-site logistical solutions to bring your project cost feasible and most profitable to you and your customer. Our diversified range of transportation specialties is adaptable to the specific requirements of your project in order to offer the best rates.
CRATING & PACKAGING
Our warehouse facility located at the Port of Houston, has a 45,000 square foot space available of closed fenced yard and about 10,000 square feet of closed 4-door container high dock warehouse space. Services available to our customers are:
ON-SITE PACKING CREW
We will provide private crew members to ensure special handling in packing your overseas shipment.
OCEAN CONTAINER LOADS
Our packing experts will provide specialty services on 20 and 40-foot containers on any packing such as sub-floors, blocking, bracing, stuffing, retainer walls and complete weather proofing.
AIR AND OCEAN EXPORT & DOMESTIC PACKING
No matter what material we receive for packing, everything is reviewed and studied to be able to offer our customer a specific packaging structure. If material is specified for export we will treat this cargo with care, creating the proper packing that will resist all kinds of handling and weather throughout its journey. We also view the possibilities of domestic packing when cargo does not move such a long distance. This procedure will save our customers time and money.
PALLETIZING, STRIPPING AND HOOD BOXING
Sometimes different commodities require specific needs yet some only need convenient ways to be handled. We strip cargo to re-consolidate any items on any order you request or separate items to go to different destinations. Any cargo that needs to be strongly secured we pack material in wood-hooded boxes fit exactly to measurement to minimize volume.
One of our most frequent jobs is packing pipe in bundles, marking and labeling raw materials. We bundle, strap and band small diameter pipe to make it easier to handle. Some specialized pipe requires more advance packing such as dunnage to protect coatings on the wall of this material.
Affiliated agents throughout North, Central & South America , Canada , Mexico and Europe are exclusively at your service through DTS to provide an extensive usage of warehousing ensuring your cargo is protected and carried to its final destination.
HAZARDOUS MATERIAL HANDLING
Handling hazardous material is not easy especially with constant updates for handling dangerous goods. Our warehouse facility has a private sector where we handle hazardous material to be packed and shipped according to Material Safety Data Regulations.
SPECIAL PROJECT CARGO EXPEDITING
Project cargo always requires special attention and details. The best practical solution starts with a clear understanding of the processes involved. We will then consult and review your supply chain, analyzing each segment properly through your onsite routines to warehousing and final delivery. This is more efficient, reduces costs and enhances your level of service.
