Expeditors International of Washington, Inc. provides global logistics services. The company offers its customers an international network supporting the movement and strategic positioning of goods. The company’s services include the consolidation or forwarding of air and ocean freight. In each United States full service office, and in various overseas offices, the company acts as a customs broker. The company also provides additional services, including order management, time-definite transportation, warehousing and distribution, cargo insurance, and customized logistics solutions. The company offers a range of global logistics services to a group of customers, both in terms of industry specialization and geographic location. The company operates full service offices in various geographic regions, such as the United States (47), other North America (10), Latin America (14), the Asia Pacific (42), Europe and Africa (49), and the Middle East and India (23). The company also contracts with independent agents to provide required services and has established 44 such relationships worldwide. Airfreight Services When performing airfreight services, the company acts either as a freight consolidator or as an agent for the airline, which carries the shipment. When acting as a freight consolidator, the company purchases cargo space from airlines on a volume basis and resells that space to its customers at lower rates than the customers could obtain directly from airlines on an individual shipment. When moving shipments between points where the nature or volume of business does not facilitate consolidation, the company receives and forwards individual shipments as the agent of the airline, which carries the shipment. Whether acting as a consolidator or agent, the company offers its customers knowledge of optimum routing, familiarity with local business practices, knowledge of export and import documentation and procedures, the ability to arrange for ancillary services, and assistance with space availability in periods of peak demand. In its airfreight operations, the company receives shipments from its customers, determines the routing, consolidates shipments bound for a particular airport distribution point, and selects the airline for transportation to the distribution point. At the distribution point, the company or its agent arranges for the consolidated lot to be broken down into its component shipments and for the transportation of the individual shipments to their final destinations. Ancillary services provided by the company include preparation of shipping and customs documentation, packing, crating and insurance services, negotiation of letters of credit, and the preparation of documentation to comply with local export laws. Ocean Freight and Ocean Services The company operates Expeditors International Ocean, Inc. (EIO), an Ocean Transportation Intermediary, sometimes referred to as a non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC), which specializes in ocean freight services in various major trade lanes in the world. EIO also provides service, on a smaller scale, to and from any location where the company has an office or agent. As a NVOCC, EIO contracts with ocean shipping lines to obtain transportation for a fixed number of containers between various points during a specified time period at an agreed rate. EIO handles full container loads for customers that do not want to contract directly with the ocean carriers and for those customers that prefer to supplement their carrier strategy with a NVOCC. EIO also solicits less-than container load freight to fill the containers and charges lower rates than those available directly from shipping lines. Order Management provides services, which manage origin consolidation, supplier performance, carrier allocation, carrier performance, container management, document management, destination management, and PO/SKU visibility through a Web based application. Customers have the ability to monitor and report against near real time status of purchase orders from the date of creation through final delivery. Order Management is available for various modes of transpo
