With innovative supply chain solutions comes the ability to make better business decisions. Our customer success teams can help you get to the root cause of your supply chain challenges and develop manageable solutions to drive quantified value. What is quantified value? Quantified value can come in the form of improved customer service, improved quality, and cost reductions.
Whether you are struggling to keep up with an increase in customer demand, need help managing inventory with specific storage & handling requirements, or your in-house solution isn’t equipped to flex with peak season, a third-party logistics partner can be one of the best investments available for your business. The primary benefit to using value-added services is to outsource the areas of your company’s operations that are difficult to handle in-house, be it inventory management or order fulfillment. You get to focus more of your resources on your core business, while Sunland Logistics Solutions manages core functions of your supply chain logistics and serves as an extension of your team.
Through this integration with your systems, we can pull the orders out of your inventory and begin processing without you needing to manually send over this information. That speeds up how quickly orders get fulfilled while keeping the shipping costs under control.
If you need to put together promotional packaging, kits, or seasonal displays, Sunland Logistics Solutions can help execute special projects or long term solutions.
Managing returns has grown to be an increasing challenge for retailers and manufacturers as eCommerce has skyrocketed.

Whether you’re a retailer or manufacturer, systems integration across your supply chain enables real time, consistent information to help make better, faster business decisions. It can improve quality as a result of eliminating manual data-entry errors and increases productivity without increasing staff.

Foreign Trade Zone
Sunland Logistics Solutions currently has access to and operates active FTZ space. Foreign Trade Zones were created to encourage US participation in national trade and to defer payments of duties until goods are entered into the commerce of the United States. Foreign goods may be admitted to an FTZ without being subject to customs duties and certain excise taxes.
– Duty % is based on type of product
– Incentivizes manufacturing in the U.S.
Consolidating and delaying duties payments to —or avoiding duties and excise taxes altogether—is beneficial to customers who import to our FTZ. Customers may import into our FTZ zone and export back out of the country without ever entering U.S. Commerce.
