Expeditors International of Washington, Inc. provides global logistics services. The company offers its customers an international network of people and integrated information systems supporting the movement and strategic positioning of goods. The company’s primary services include air and ocean freight transportation and customs brokerage. It also provides additional services, such as cargo insurance and customized logistics solutions. Airfreight Services When performing airfreight services, the company typically acts either as a freight consolidator or as an agent for the airline which carries the shipment. When acting as a freight consolidator, the company purchases cargo space from airlines on a volume basis and resells that space to its customers at lower rates than the customers could obtain directly from airlines on an individual shipment. The company issues a House Airway Bill to its customers as its contract of carriage and separately receives a Master Airway Bill from the airlines when the freight is physically tendered. Whether acting as a consolidator or agent, the company offers its customers knowledge of optimum routing, familiarity with local business practices, knowledge of export and import documentation and procedures, the ability to arrange for ancillary services, and assistance with space availability in periods of peak demand. In its airfreight operations, the company receives shipments from its customers, determines the routing, consolidates shipments bound for a particular airport distribution point, and selects the airline for transportation to the distribution point. At the distribution point, the company or its agent arranges for the consolidated lot to be broken down into its component shipments and for the transportation of the individual shipments to their final destinations. The company estimates its average airfreight consolidation weighs approximately 2,800 pounds and a typical consolidation includes merchandise from various shippers. It typically delivers shipments from a company warehouse at the origin to the airline after consolidating the freight into containers or onto pallets. Shipments normally arrive at the destination distribution point within 48 hours after such delivery. Ocean Freight and Ocean Services The company operates Expeditors International Ocean, Inc. (EIO), an Ocean Transportation Intermediary (OTI), sometimes referred to as a Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC), which specializes in ocean freight services in most major trade lanes in the world. EIO also provides service, on a smaller scale, to and from any location where the company has an office or agent. Ocean freight services are comprised of three basic services: ocean freight consolidation (EIO), direct ocean forwarding and order management. Ocean Freight Consolidation: As an NVOCC, EIO contracts with ocean shipping lines to obtain transportation for a fixed number of containers between various points during a specified time period at an agreed rate. EIO handles full container loads for customers that do not want to contract directly with the ocean carriers and for those customers that prefer to supplement their carrier strategy with an NVOCC. EIO also solicits less-than container load freight to fill the containers and charges lower rates than those available directly from shipping lines. The company issues a House Ocean Bill (HOBL) to customers as the contract of carriage and receives a separate Master Ocean Bill of Lading (MOBL) when freight is physically tendered. Direct Ocean Forwarding: When the customer contracts directly with the steamship line, the company acts as an agent of the customer and derives its revenues from commissions paid by the steamship line and handling fees paid by the customer. In such arrangements, no HOBL is issued by the company. The MOBL shows the customer as the shipper. Order Management: Order management provides services, which manage origin consolidation, supplier performance, carrier allocation, carrier performance, container management, document management, destination management and PO/SKU visibility through a Web based application.
