India Shipping Keys to Success

Insist on full visibility from origin to destination for all shipments. Proactively manage suppliers with automated order management, while closing any gaps with logistics partners. Flexport’s platform for global logistics puts it all within reach.

Approach India With Insight

Monsoon Port Closures

Monsoon season during summer months may result in flooding and closure of ports at origin with cascading effects throughout supply chains.

Dry or Wet Port?

Coastal wet ports connect to inland dry ports (ICDs) by rail. With an inland supplier, your containers may be customs cleared and sealed at an ICD before reaching the coast.

Alt to Ocean Carrier Alliances

Instead, carriers jointly operate niche services by selling slots on each of their vessels regardless of alliance.
