When you’re in the toy industry, you’re responsible for shipping toys to a variety of destinations. Whether you’re shipping to department stores, toy stores, or distribution centers, it requires a significant amount of logistics. At Royal Transportation Services, we make it easier for you to reach your goals while saving money along the way.

Logistics of the Toy Industry

There are a lot of logistics involved with toys transportation. Much of this has to do with cutting the time to market. Especially when you launch a new toy, the goal is to get it into the hands of the end-consumer as quickly as possible. That doesn’t necessarily mean spending more money on transportation costs, however.

Supply chain management is critical within the toy industry because you have to maintain your competitive edge while focusing on inventory risks. Knowing the trends of what’s selling and what isn’t can help you with the overall logistics to ensure you’re shipping what needs to be shipped. If you allow a popular product to run low in inventory, you run the risk of stocking out, which can become problematic for retailers.

You don’t want to run into problems with retailers. If they cannot stock your toys at the inventory levels that they desire, they’ll find another toy company to work with. You cannot sabotage your client relationships due to poor logistics – and this is why it’s critical to understand trends, focus on competition, and maintain high availability.

Toys shipping can take on a variety of shapes and sizes based on how much you have to ship to each destination. You need to make sure that you’re tapping into the right mode of transportation – and that’s where it’s important to work with us at Royal Transportation Services.

There are a few common modes of transportation used for toys:

  • Trucking
  • Rail
  • Ocean
  • Air

The mode that’s used for you will depend heavily on the size of the load as well as where it’s being shipped. We have a network of thousands of carriers to ensure that you get affordable, fast, and reliable shipping. Particularly when you have toys shipping around the world, we have the means to help with our 24/7 logistics support.

Intermodal shipping is commonly used, too. This allows us to use two modes of transportation to provide the fastest and most affordable solution to get your toys to their destination. For example, it can start by rail and, then, move to trucking to get to the actual warehouse.

Additionally, we will help you explore LTL (less than full load) and FTL (full truckload) services to meet your needs. This way, whether you have a few boxes or multiple pallets worth of toys, they can reach your destination in a safe and secure manner.

Regardless of what mode of transportation is used, it will provide you with full tracking so that you can provide full visibility to the retailers you work with.
