Spectra Logistics’ Bond Facility Provides Cost-Effective Solutions


Spectra Logistics has taken a bold stride in the industry with its latest groundbreaking offering: an advanced bond facility designed to provide cost-effective solutions for its customers. As a prime logistics solution provider in the country, Spectra Logistics has solidified its position for unwavering commitment to excellence, offering an extensive range of services, including contract logistics, container depot services, transportation solutions, and project logistics.

The recently unveiled bond facility by Spectra is poised to transform the logistics landscape, allowing customers the flexibility to import and store cargo duty-free while benefiting from duty deferment. This innovative approach ensures that customers pay duty only on the portion of goods released to the local market upon actual release, resulting in substantial cash flow improvements.

Beyond its duty-free advantages, the facility offers tailored end-to-end logistics solutions for various stakeholders, from raw material suppliers to organizations operating under the Board of Investment (BOI), the Trade and Investment Enhancement Program (TIEP), and local manufacturers. Spectra Logistics also facilitates supply and distribution to duty-free shops and ship suppliers.

Strategically located within the Muthurajawela Industrial Zone, a mere 20-minute drive from both the seaport and airport, the facility ensures easy accessibility. Equipped with comprehensive CCTV coverage and real-time inventory management, it prioritizes the safety and efficiency of operations. The Spectra Logistics team, with its wealth of experience and operational expertise, is dedicated to providing cost-effective, tailor-made logistics solutions to multinationals, importers, traders, suppliers to local factories, duty-free shops, and exporters.

Spectra goes above and beyond to ensure total visibility of real-time inventory location through its warehouse management system, “GACware”, a software successfully employed for over 30 years. This software offers a complete solution for order management, supply chain functions, inventory control, billing modules, and the ability to create customized, query-driven MIS & KPI reports. Seamlessly integrating with external systems, it can be customized to meet various customer requirements, ensuring effectiveness in reporting, inventory management, task management, order processing, receiving, stocking, replenishment, allocation, picking, and more.

Setting industry benchmarks, Spectra Logistics holds several certifications, including ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System, ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Management, ISO 22000:2018 Food Safety Management, Good Distribution Practice (GDP), Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP), and Custom Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT). These certifications provide a competitive edge, offering customers the assurance of cargo safety around the clock. Spectra Logistics consistently conducts safety drills and safety audits to assess the facility’s security effectiveness.

Recognised at prestigious events, Spectra Logistics has earned notable accolades, including the Gold Award in the medium category at the National Logistics Awards 2021, the Gold Award in the logistics category at the National Chamber of Exporters Awards 2022, and the distinction of being the 1st Runner-Up at the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport Awards 2022.
