At TPS Global we are proud of the different ways that we have been able to help our customers. Please find below a selection of case studies outlining how we have helped with their requirements.
Consolidated shipping has many advantages for businesses, by combining LTL shipments or small individual shipments under one bill of lading and into one full container, shippers can earn preferred rates and optimise their supply chain logistics by saving time and effeciences.
Our TPS Global Sea Freight team understand the importance of customer relations when working on these consolidated shipments. It is important the shipper has confidence in the handling process. We have the process down to a fine art, so when working with Buyers Consolidation Export Services the process is as follows –
- TPS Global are alerted by our overseas agent of pending orders, the team organise and liaise with all suppliers to get cargo ready dates and this information is fed back to the agent controlling the data.
- TPS Global provide optional vessel details and container loading dates, based on ready dates and vessel close out times.
- Once all the cargo is received into the TPS warehouse and instructions confirmed, TPS load into full 20ft or 40ft containers for export either loose or palletised.
- Container is sealed at TPS Warehouse and returned to the quay for loading prior to cut off dates.
- Container VGM is completed by TPS to ensure no weight discrepancy on arrival at the port.
- Customs clearance completed by TPS and bill instructions sent to the shipping line.
This is an example of our consolidation service, at TPS Global we pride ourselves on our relationships with retailers and wholesalers as well as with our trusted overseas agents. As a full service logistics provider we go one step further offering storage, multi-modal transportation, inventory management and white glove delivery services.

Freight consolidation provides reduced risk, quality material handling and complete distribution management, a good logistics relationship provides shippers with better access to tailored shipping solutions as well as peace of mind.
At TPS Global we understand the importance of consumer experience within retailing, and especially so for the cosmetics industry so when ADP approached us to store, maintain, transport, set up and break down their MiN New York beauty collateral and event stand throughout the year we knew our experienced warehouse team would be the right people for the job.
The stand itself is a bespoke piece of kit, 10ft by 6.5ft constructed from wood and glass, comprising of shelving, light boxes and cupboards, it has to be handled and transported carefully and is accompanied by a toolkit of seasonal display items and furniture, the team install all items carefully and precisely in accordance with the artwork sent over ahead of every event. They then collect and break down the stand post event, storing all items safely in the warehouse until the next event.
In April the stand was transported and installed in Selfridges on Oxford Street, the challenge for this particular job was working around specific store opening times and the traffic restrictions along Oxford Street. Using our experienced 2 man team and 3.5 tonne box van with tailgate, we managed to navigate the chaos of Oxford Street after 9.30pm, working around the other deliveries and obstructions, as well as general public and the focus on such an iconic British store.
The stand was delivered and placed in position, dressed with the antique books, fragrances, glassware, bottles, beakers and flasks. The team worked hard assembling the items as per instructions, bottles, flasks and beakers were filled with fresh ingredients and dressed with decorative flora and fauna and then placed in the correct positions under lights and along each of the eight shelves. The stand was installed, dressed and completed within the one hour timeslot.
This is an example of our white glove service, at TPS Global we go one step further to follow our customer requirements to the letter. ADP trust us to deliver the high standards that they expect for their brand and products.
