TOKYO, JAPAN, 2021-Sep-09 — /Travel PR News/ — ANA HOLDINGS (“ANA HD”) freight forwarding and logistics company Overseas Courier Service (OCS) CO, Ltd. will launch on September 15 a new service called “iEC,” dedicated to the transportation of cross border E-Commerce cargo and parcels.
OCS is an express air cargo forwarder with a global network of 400 stations that utilizes ANA’s domestic and international air network that offers B2B and B2C door-to-door access. Leveraging this cargo and shipping infrastructure, iEC is specifically designed to support shipment of E-Commerce goods from Japan.* iEC will begin with a focus on South Korea, Taiwan and Singapore, and gradually expand into the U.S. and Europe and eventually to China this fiscal year.
“As E-Commerce business continues to expand globally, we are launching iEC, a new robust service that leverages our more than 60 years of experience and ANA network for a seamless experience to our customers,” said Takeshi Negishi, President and CEO of Overseas Courier Service. “We have developed the iEC to remove the complicated process of shipping E-Commerce goods that customers face. Our simple fee structure can be tailored to meet the customers’ needs that deliver reliably and consistently, while integrated with other systems.”
OCS offers integrated door-to-door delivery to nearly every country with options including storage, fulfillment, inventory control, customs brokerage, duty deferement and customer defined INCOTERMS.
