Interview with Aurélia Anselme, branch manager in Valencia of Erhardt Ertransit

Last Sunday, an interview with Aurélia Anselme, the Branch Manager of Erhardt Ertransit in Valencia, was published in the newspaper Las Provincias de Valencia.

Under the headline «A fragmented approach to logistics stresses the business and generates higher costs, non-compliance with deliveries and blind spots in the chain» Aurélia sets out the advantages of having integrated logistics.

We partially reproduce the content of said interview.

Current logistics is in a state of almost permanent turmoil. The causes of this unrest vary from an unstable geopolitical environment, more extreme weather phenomena, accelerated technological change and economic uncertainty.

Now more than ever, you need to adopt long-term strategies. Periodically reviewing your logistics practices is essential to ensure a reliable supply chain. In addition, pursuing strategies that improve supplier relationships, implement digital solutions, and promote sustainability is essential to foster growth in difficult times.

Ultimately, collaborating with the right logistics partner, who has the necessary experience, presence, and insight, is the first step to navigate turbulent waters and thus strengthen your supply chain.

For us, the key lies in working under effective logistics integration, which saves time, effort, and costs. Based on our experience, team, and knowledge, we address the entire process in an integrated manner with a single point of contact, providing complete visibility of the chain. It is the best way to maximize both delivery efficiency and financial savings.

In recent years, logistics has become of capital importance to companies. Geopolitical tensions and recent disruptions in supply chains underline the need to have a trusted and global partner, with an experienced organisational structure and the ability to offer alternatives when something fails. The panorama is often complex, however everything is easier when you have a logistics partner capable of integrating the entire chain: transport, customs, storage, legal compliance, etc.

There are many examples, but an essential one in international trade is that of border agility. Hiring a transport service is not the same as hiring a logistics service that includes transport, customs, storage and legal compliance; the difference in time and costs can be very relevant for the client’s business.

For example, taking advantage of the tax advantages offered by customs regulations helps to balance cash flows and favours agility in international trade. The community customs regime provides for customs authorisations that are of great help in the current international trade panorama.

Effectively addressing each link in the international supply chain requires a clear understanding of the nuances of each industrial sector. Each segment of activity has its own challenges and perhaps the most important is to avoid having its logistics chains operate in a fragmented and disconnected way. A fragmented approach stresses the business and often leads to additional costs, non-compliance in deliveries and blind spots in the chain.
