Customized Brokers, Crowley Logistics’ customs brokerage subsidiary, has been selected by Land N’ Sea Apparel Company as its customs clearance and supply chain services partner. Customized Brokers has begun servicing the private-label women and children’s apparel manufacturer with expanded supply chain services, increasing supply chain services’ velocity.

Under the agreement, Customized Brokers will provide US Customs clearance services and cargo insurance coverage to the apparel company.

“Crowley builds value by partnering with businesses for the entirety of their supply chain, not just individual components, like ocean transportation,” said Frank Larkin, senior vice president and general manager, logistics. “In doing so, we are able to increase the velocity with which their goods move to market, which has a direct linear impact on total landed costs.”

“This optimisation of services for an apparel customer like Land N’ Sea, demonstrates Customized Brokers’ ability to add value to a customer’s supply chain, regardless of the commodity,” said Kimberly Wakeman, vice president, Customized Brokers. “As a single-source, total supply chain solutions provider, we have developed ways to more efficiently manage the complexities of importing both textiles and apparel along the supply chain. We have dependable, compliance-driven teams that keep abreast of regulations on this constantly evolving market.”

Of the new partnership, Land N’ Sea’s CEO Eric Sobel commented, “In today’s competitive retail landscape, we are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to improve the efficiency of our supply chain. Ultimately, greater efficiency results in faster speed-to-market, enabling us to get our product to the retail floor more rapidly. To provide our customers with the highest level of service possible, we have to always be examining our own internal processes and seeking out partners that can help us raise the benchmark even higher than it was before.” (SV)
