As mobility continues to evolve in response to changes in cross-functional industry landscapes, companies continue to look for new opportunities to improve their employees’ relocation in a more timely and cost effective manner.
To support organizations’ strategic needs and provide relocating employees with an innovative option for household good shipments, BGRS launched the Household Goods Containerization Program, a solution that ships goods expediently by freight carrier rather than traditional van lines. The program is now fully available for U.S. Domestic, as well as Canadian cross-border moves. By utilizing containerized shipments, relocating employees’ will receive secure containerization, shorter transit times, reduced temporary housing needs and reduced claims rates.
Our highly tested Containerization Program results in higher direct costs savings over the traditional van line model. Goods are delivered in 5-10 business days, which is five days’ sooner than traditional delivery. Through the use of technology, mobile employees now have the option to use a smartphone app equipped with video capability to video chat with a professional surveyor. This enables them to chronicle the contents of their shipment, eliminating the need for appointments and taking time off work during a period of transition.
“Today’s business world is fast-paced, and mobile employees’ expectations for fast and efficient service are higher than ever” stated Dan Mack, Vice President, Transportation Services. “We understand the stress of moving, and the positive impact that having personal items delivered timely can have on a person or families’ transition. This program delivers the freedom and ease of knowing their personal items are securely wrapped and placed into a container, and delivered sooner than if their items shipped via a traditional van line model.”
