VoIP technology provider Patton cooperates with FedEx
Enterprise Patton, being the substantial player within industry of network access, carrier class digital connectivity, VoIP equipment—announced the launch of a new logistics program in tight collaboration with FedEx that designed to cut off freight costs, speed up delivery, ensure new business opportunities, and more other advantages to channel partners and end clientele in Europe and on the global scale.
By introduction of the specific International Priority Direct Distribution (IPD) program with FedEx, Patton’s sophisticated logistics program enables customers from the European UNI0N to receive their orders one day faster on average, at drastically diminished freight cost, and already all set for customs and Value-Added Tax (VAT) associated procedures. Clients who utilize IPD shipping from Patton’s main factory (Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA) are eligible to get up to 50% reduction in shipping expenses compared with FedEx International Priority. Also Patton now prints Universal Product Code/European Article Number (UPC/EAN) barcodes on shipping labels for the manufacturer’s most popular stock-keeping units (SKUs). The barcode-enhanced shipping labels open up new business opportunities for Patton’s global channel partners by enabling such prominent distributors as Amazon.com to enter Patton’s best-selling goods into their logistics hubs. “Time is money for any sized business,” said Steve Schrader, Manufacturing VP at Patton. “By clearing a set of logistical hurdles for our EU customers we improve their bottom lines. No one likes waiting. So they have a happier day when we cut some red tape. And so far, I haven’t heard any complaints about cutting freight costs in half either.” The IPD program reduces freight cost for any recepient by consolidating orders destined for the EU into a unified shipment into France. Patton, as the Importer of Record, clears the entire shipment through customs and VAT. The separated orders are then dispatched individually throughout the EU—arriving just one or two days after departure from the U.S.
