Probably everyone has ordered some goods from another country or region at least once. For customers, it’s important to be able to track their order in a real-time, and to receive it fast and in a perfect condition. But do we ever think of who provides us with these advantages and conveniences, doing a really complex job? The answer is: Logistics.
Logistics deal with planning, packaging, organization of transportation and delivery of goods from one point to another. The main rules in logistics management are more or less universal across the world. But since certain countries have access to the sea and the others don’t, not every country exports or imports goods by sea.
Maritime Cargo Transportation
Israel is one of those countries that provide marine freight transportation services. It has access to the Mediterranean and the Red Sea. The main seaports are located in Ashkelon, Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Hadera, and main sea container terminals are located in such cities as Ashdod and Haifa. Cargo from/to these ports is delivered easily and safely at low costs.
Israeli logistics companies use such sea shipping solutions as full container load (FCL) and less than container load (LCL). Using Big Data Software is also efficient for the optimal sea transportation, because it collects, extracts and analyzes information about weather, geolocation, engine of the vessels and cargo status. And some of these systems can also evaluate and identify risks for this ship.
If you want to receive your order faster, it’s better to use air freight delivery. Israel becomes more attractive and popular in air logistics. New airports and routes dynamically appear and the existing ones are being improved. Israel’s key air cargo centers are David Ben-Gurion Airport in Lodi, Eilat Airport, and Haifa Airport.
In this type of transportation there are such popular solutions as door-to-door, airport-to-airport, door-to-airport and airport-to-door delivery. With the help of a special air navigation system, it becomes possible to plan routes, to record necessary data and to control the cargo status.
Israel has a highly developed infrastructure even though a huge part of its territory is desert. The largest cities are connected by highways. Road signs in Israel are in Hebrew, Arabic, and English, and that’s why there is no problem in reading them for foreign drivers. And it’s really helpful because a lot of well-known international companies have their representatives in Israel.
In this case, single or multimodal road transportation is relevant. Carefully synchronized and planned transportation routes guarantee successful door-to-door delivery. Special Track & Trace Systems help to not only track the point where the cargo is at the moment but also to monitor equipment and drivers in a real-time mode.
Israeli railways also help in the distribution of goods between industrial centers. In some way, rail is competitive with car transportation, because it is cheaper. But there is another side of the coin: the majority of railway stations are located far from city centers.

To improve the quality and speed of logistic processes Israeli companies offer Smart Containers solution. It helps to control the location of cargo, shows its condition and prevents unwanted intervention. If something goes wrong the customer gets an alert notification. This system is synchronized with the mobile app, for this reason, all you need to know about your delivery is in your pocket.

Now you know what the logistic process in Israel looks like. Next time you deal with a delivery from Israel, you can be sure that your parcel is safe, because this country has amazing logistic possibilities and uses leading innovations in the delivery processes.
