government shipping case study


Recently a government agency had an urgent need to ship freight from the lower 48 states into a remote area of Alaska. The agency employee crated the shipment and called Alaska Air Forwarding for the shipping. Then he flew to the freight’s destination. Later that night after landing, the employee checked in with his office and logged into his e-mail.

To his amazement he read that the shipment had arrived ahead of him. It was already secure and safe in the warehouse.
