White Glove Service for Data-Shield

Think about the white gloves worn by servers in fine dining. It’s a top-class service, exceeding expectations. This is the idea behind white glove services in the world of logistics. It refers to the handling of care used when moving products.

In shipping, this means that every precaution is taken on handling of the product. Products requiring white glove service are those that can be easily damaged or of high value. This includes large household appliances, furniture and expensive electronics.

White glove service has major implications for reducing liability and damages. This means lower premiums and fewer claims for the shipper.

In addition, reverse logistics become more effective. Since fewer returns come in, malfunctioning products and other problems can identified faster. As such, white glove services also drive the costs of managing returns and reverse logistics down.
