YSDS is a Swedish special logistics company with offices in seven countries. We work primarily with IT, pharmaceuticals and medtech companies and are looking for potential partners to help us locally in other countries.
We are now aiming to map out potential subcontractors/agents worldwide.
We would like you to find (via google, etc,) 3-5 potential subcontractors in each city with an international airport in all the countries listed below and conduct an initial “test” of them. We are looking for small to midsized companies with a high service level and fast response times.
1. Finding subcontractors.
Search for companies based on the following search words in combination with country and city:
- Freight forwarder
- Customs clearance
- GDP compliant
- Importer of record
- Bond fee
- Dangerous Goods IATA
- Dedicated direct drives/cars/vehicles
The following companies are to be excluded since they are competitors/existing partners:
- World Couriers (https://www.worldcourier.com/)
- Marken Logistics (https://www.marken.com/)
- Optimize Courier (http://www.optimizecourier.se/en-GB)
After the subcontractor has been found we would like you to send them an email and give them a call and perform the following.
E-mail them the template we have provided and note down their response time and answers in the provided excel.
Two hours after emailing the company you should give them a call them and note down their answer time. If they don’t answer, try two more times (later during the day) before noting them as not responding. When they pickup ask them the following questions and note down their answers and rate their general attitude (1 Uninterested and negligent – 5 Fast, friendly and serviceminded).
Telephone Question 1: Have you seen our e-mail?
Telephone Question 2: When will you have time to answer it? (if no answer has been received for 2 hours)
Telephone Question 3: Are you interested in YSDS as a new client?
Telephone Question 4: How do you think that your company can be of assistance?
Delivery time, project start and price is negotiable. I will balance price, quality and time to delivery. Possibly pay/found company? Depending on price more than one freelancer might be contracted in order to get cross references.
