Freight Forwarding and Logistics: 3 Incredible Reasons MVX Should be your Partner

5 min readJul 13, 2021

How much difference would the right freight forwarding company make to your business success?

Takbal Inc*, a Nigerian coffee plantation and export organization, has customers in Europe, Asia, and America. If it can ship its high-quality coffee beans to waiting customers across the world on time, the company would increase its revenue by 35% year on year. But that exactly had been its challenge for years.

Finding the freight forwarding agency that offered all the end-to-end products and services Takbal needed to ship its coffee beans from plantations in Taraba State to customers in Europe and America was like looking for a needle in a haystack. It was costly, time-consuming, and most often than not, the agencies it found were not reliable. Over the years, it had lost millions of dollars in potential revenue because of this.

The market, you see, is very competitive across sectors. It does not matter what you sell or the quality of your customer service; you have to get your product to your customers at the right time to succeed or risk the competition edging you out. The right goods + The right place + The right time is the perfect recipe for success in the trade sector (and of course, in any industry)!

Think trade, think MVX

The Right Needle in the Haystack: Why We should be your First Choice Freight Forwarding and Logistics Partner

Takbal Inc* had a target and was focused on capturing the full benefits of producing and exporting coffee beans in Nigeria. The organization reviewed its logistics processes and adopted a lean model that cut costs and optimizes delivery time through a Nigerian digital freight forwarding and logistics company that offers aggregated, end-to-end freight forwarding and logistics solutions. It ended up saving $5000 in logistics costs while completing its shipment at least two weeks faster than usual.

Freight forwarding and logistics make a world of difference when done right. Not only would it enhance the competitive advantage of your business, but it would also generate numerous growth opportunities. With that in mind, here are why you should let MVX handle your freight forwarding and logistics processes.
