Getting Goods Out the Door

Our logistics department handles every detail pertaining to your shipment, whether it's a full container of goods or product consolidated to one of our two warehouses located in Georgia or California. The East West Supply Chain Management solution plans the most efficient way to load containers at origin, often times consolidating goods from multiple factories across Asia. Once containers are loaded onto the cargo vessel for its global trek, our logistics team ensures that everything runs smoothly while tracking shipments every step of the way.


The East West supply chain management team takes care of the shipping paperwork, including the container booking with the steamship line, the bill of lading preparation, as well as U.S. Customs clearance. Duty charges are prepaid in order to guarantee the quickest delivery to the destination.
