Flash Global Logistics (Flash), the leading authority on worldwide end-to-end
supply chain services, is the foremost expert when it comes to managing every
aspect of service parts logistics (SPL) services in challenger markets such as
India, Brazil, Russia and China, according to CEO Jim Van Leenen.

“When it comes to managing the complexities of moving mission critical spare
parts into and out of emerging markets, we can do what most of our competitors
can’t – ensure compliance and reduce pipeline inventory often by as much as
40% by reducing the total transit time,” said Van Leenen.

Flash’s extensive infrastructure strategically spans the globe. Command center
locations outnumber their competitors nearly five to one and include key
regions such as Tokyo, Japan; Mexico City, Mexico; Sao Paulo, Brazil; Moscow,
Russia and Amsterdam, Netherlands. And the company’s 21 global distribution
center locations include several strategically located “gateways” situated in
Chennai, India; Amsterdam, Netherlands; Chicago, IL; Hayward, CA and Sao
Paulo, Brazil. Importing and exporting goods out of these gateways can
consistently expedite transit times by two to ten days.

Flash’s network in India is also strengthened by its exclusive partnership
with Chennai-based Cadensworth India Ltd, a subsidiary of Redington India Ltd,
making Flash the most developed forward and reverse distribution solution in
the country.

“By partnering with Cadensworth, we have a trusted, built-in team of local
experts who are readily available to manage operations on the ground in India
and have experienced trade and compliance experts in the country. They are
relentlessly committed to flawless execution,” said Van Leenen. “We control
product at every touch point from entry to delivery and bring IOR/EOR
expertise that is second to none – eliminating customs clearance delays that
can wreak havoc on transit times and ultimately customer SLAs. In addition, in
close collaboration with Cadensworth, we advise and enable clients in
fulfilling all statutory compliances required to import refurbished parts into
India.”

According to Eric Clopper, director, Global Services Logistics, F5 Network
Inc.,“After a significant mutual investment in resources and time, Flash
Global Logistics, together with Redington - Cadensworth and F5 Networks,
developed a number of innovative import and export capabilities that have
enabled the F5 Global Services logistics team to support F5 Networks continued
business growth in the Indian market place.”

The ability to conquer complex business issues in challenger markets has
helped Flash enjoy strong international growth over the past three years. The
company’s success in enhancing and building service parts capabilities has
seen the market respond favorably, resulting in revenue growth from
international markets from 5% in 2007 to 59% in 2012. Flash has solidified
their position as the go-to resource for innovative, single source solutions
for end-to-end mission critical supply chain needs.
