How Your Shipping Can Speed Up Global Growth

Hed Cycling Bikes

Watch the video to learn how Hed Cycling uses the right mix of delivery services to speed up its journey to worldwide success. What you’ll discover:

  • As Hed Cycling became a symbol of speed for cyclists all over the world, the company went from shipping its wheels and components to distributors within the U.S. to shipping them to a rising number of distributors scattered across the globe, including Europe, South Korea, Singapore and Australia. That success came with a rise in shipping costs and complexities.

  • To keep its competitive edge, the company needed an international growth strategy. A key part of that strategy was finding the right shipping process that offered fast delivery – sometimes the very next day – virtually anywhere in the world.

  • When Hed’s FedEx sales rep noticed a pattern of multiple boxes being shipped to a single location, he offered an efficient and economical solution for sustaining their growth: FedEx Freight. This service allows Hed to put up to 50 boxes on a single skid, making one shipment to the distributor.

  • Over the years, Hed has utilized many different services across the FedEx portfolio to help streamline and support their global expansion, including FedEx Express, FedEx Ground, FedEx Freight, FedEx Trade Networks and FedEx® international services. This gives Hed the advantage of using a single source for all of their worldwide transportation needs, with the assurance that every order is shipped through the right service at the right price.
