Vendor assembly program USA
Features of Service The concept of VI.SA. Australia Pty Ltd [VISA]and Sea Shipping Lines’ [SSL] Vendor Assembly Program is ideal for customers who are importing from multiple suppliers around the United States of America. Depending on the size of the order, vendors from virtually anywhere in the USA could be included in this consolidation shipping program.
Given initial copies of the buyer’s purchase orders or other notification, VISA and SSL’s assembly desk can begin the standard tracing of these orders with the various suppliers.
VISA and SSL then use this and subsequent information to assemble multiple shipments, wherever possible, to move on single ocean bills of lading or air waybills.
Under this program, VISA and SSL become your appointed "agent" for consolidation purposes. Individual order/supplier details are carefully documented on a shipping manifest to enable easy clearance/delivery at destination.

Prior to the close off of our consolidation containers, a comprehensive on-hand report can be faxed as often as you require. After receiving the report, you can then advise whether to:
The choice is yours. You tell us up to the last possible moment what and how much to ship out by ocean or air as per your requirements.
The "on-hand" report is a pivotal tool in this service, and an appropriate format will be designed to enable you to easily identify your orders. Please see sample format as an example.
