GUATEMALA: Guatemalan Firm's Storage Innovation
"Lazer Transportation Services responded with a true innovative solution to our customer's needs for prompt delivery of the bestselling garments." Said Steven Kamhi, president of production, Aaron Kamhi, Inc whose New York based-manufacturing company launched this Fall's fashion season using the Lazer Collapsible Garment Containers.
"The launch of this garment on hanger air freight program is typical of our global team effort." Said Jim Lhamon, chief operating officer for Lazer Transportation Services, A Business of F.X. Coughlin Co., which along with its sister company Distance Packaging Solutions, designed this new collapsible shipping container.
Working closely with the apparel industry, the shipping container program was first proposed just six months ago. In May this year with the first working prototype, Contreras worked closely with alliance partner Caniz International Corporation of Guatemala and distance packaging engineers to deliver the working program to meet the logistics challenges of the customer's peak fashion season.
Manufactured in Canada, the containers when collapsed occupy a mere 12 per cent of the space of older container methods when speeding the necessary containers to the factories. Each unit is assembled by one or two people as needed on the factory floor. This quick assembly and packing process allows Lazer Transportation to immediately expedite delivery of the display ready garments by scheduled airliners direct to the buyer/retailer.
"Our advanced import/export transportation services backed by long-term alliances in Central American trade centres are increasingly sought after by both apparel and textile manufacturers seeking their marketing advantages," said Lhamon.
"Lazer's knowledge of all transportation options available south of the border allows manufacturers to better meet the changing demands of their fashion-retailer customers"; he continued. The continued growth of Caribbean and South American garment assembly business has meant that Contreras's team of Miami-based Southern hemisphere specialists are travelling to cities like New York (the traditional headquarters for many fashion industry leaders). This is a change from the usual localized sales efforts employed by most traditional transportation and logistics companies.
