Leading Resort in Anguilla
Suddath prepared all commercial shipping documents and oversaw and coordinated customs clearance, exams and duty oversight for the project.
A leading luxury hotel chain was looking for a company to manage a variety of services for their new $500 million resort under construction in Anguilla. The project required a company with immense experience in supplier purchase order management, inbound transportation,consolidation in a storage facility with complete inventory control, quality assurance of products, outbound transportation and installation of construction materials, landscaping materials, FF&E, decorative lighting and OS&E.
Project Goal: Organize and execute a strategy to ensure the timely delivery and installation of all items received at the new resort facility to meet the projects’ timeline for completion.
Working closely with developers to strategically manage all their vendors, Suddath® took control of the process at the vendor locations and managed, tracked and negotiated freight costs to the consolidation point in Miami, Florida. All products were consolidated and shipped, as needed, to install in available spaces. Suddath closely monitored the schedule to provide the most cost—and time-effective transportation services. Throughout the entire construction process, our streamlined process allowed the development group to have the correct products when and where they’re needed. Had the developer chosen multiple transportation providers or allowed vendors and contractors to arrange the freight, they would have been unable to capitalize on opportunities for consolidation of freight and volume cost reductions that Suddath negotiated with our carriers. We estimated that the savings in freight costs alone to be in the millions for a project of this size.
