1 Total Supply Chain Management Visibility, efficiency and complete supply chain management control from Gulf Winds.

2 Services At Gulf Winds, we are committed to providing our clients with dynamic logistics solutions that will result in bottom line savings opportunities. Excellent customer service, superior information processes, custom client solutions and reliable service continue to be the standards by which we operate. As a logistics specialist, we understand the challenges associated with the movement of goods. Our goal is to ease this burden by providing our clients with the tools necessary to make informed business decisions. Container Management gwitrack SM, Gulf Winds web-based container management system, allows you to access container and PO information from port of origin through final destination. Use gwitrack to manage the movement of your containers nationwide and provide increased visibility to the partners in your supply chain. It s free when you use Gulf Winds to haul your containers! Container Drayage Count on an industry leader! Gulf Winds is the largest container hauler (by volume) for the Port of Houston Barbours Cut and Bayport terminals. With secure yards in close proximity to both the BNSF Alliance and UP DIT in Dallas/Fort Worth, a large, modern fleet of trucks and a private fleet of chassis in all locations, we offer unmatched capacity ensuring delivery requirements are fulfilled year-round. Unlike most drayage providers, we maintain a balance of import and export business which has allowed us to maintain and grow our fleet regardless of economic and political concerns. In addition, as a Smartway Carrier Partner, Gulf Winds maintains an ongoing commitment to environmental stewardship. Transloading Gulf Winds is uniquely-positioned to handle all of your transloading needs with warehousing facilities located adjacent to the Port of Houston s Barbours Cut and Bayport container terminals along with the BNSF intermodal rail yard. Our locations allow us to handle up to maximum container capacity, eliminating exposure associated with moving overweight cargo on Texas roads. Several of our clients are saving up to 20% on ocean freight costs by utilizing our overweight transload program. Save up to 30% on inland transportation costs by transloading and delivering your cargo. Customs Exams We provide a full range of services to manage and monitor the customs exam process from start to finish. With automatic notifications and a dedicated representative to handle your exam, Gulf Winds will work with you to make sure your exam is processed as quickly as possible and you stay informed throughout the entire process. Once your exam is complete, our logistics experts can manage the delivery of your goods offering you a onestop-shop for all of your exam needs.

3 Out-of-Gauge and Project Cargo Gulf Winds has the experienced staff and heavy lift equipment required to handle out-of-gauge and over-dimensional cargo moving through the Port of Houston s Barbours Cut and Bayport container terminals. With a fleet of flatbeds and drop deck trailers, we provide a single-source solution for the transport and permitting of your OOG cargo. Warehousing and Distribution With over 1.5 million sq. ft. of warehouse space and dedicated project yards throughout Houston, Gulf Winds has the capacity and equipment to handle your storage and distribution needs. View your inventory activity on-line, 24/7 via gwitrack. Domestic Transportation As one of the largest outbound shippers in our region, Gulf Winds provides you with access to a fleet of best-in-class carriers offering transport to and from the South-Central region. We add value to your supply chain by offering you comprehensive solutions for all of your domestic shipping needs, allowing you to reduce costs and increase efficiencies by managing all of your services in one place.

4 Import Management Demurrage Management Notification when the container is ready for pick-up at the port or rail, and when storage charges will begin to accrue. Demurrage management saves shipping costs by eliminating dry runs when the container is not ready and storage charges accrue if the container is not picked up in time. Hold Monitoring Notification of any holds or delays at the port that will impact release of the container or affect demurrage charges. Per Diem Management Tracking of steamship line per diem tariffs, with automatic notification when the cargo needs to be unloaded from the container. When containers need to be held beyond the free time allowed by the steamship companies, gwitrack will calculate the per diem costs to provide the information required to make the best financial decision regarding storage of the cargo. gwitrack also provides tracking of custom contract terms with steamship lines for each shipment to manage cargo drops and avoid per diem charges specific to each shipment. ETA Management In addition, Gulf Winds provides tracking of incoming rail and port cargo to minimize yard pull and storage costs. gwitrack s ETA Tracking feature monitors incoming containers, providing the data needed to determine labor ordering or amount of containers to receive per day. Monitor inbound imports from Port of Origin to Port of Discharge. Track holds and see when your containers are available for delivery. The visibility of inbound container schedules, along with what has been dispatched and outgated, enables your receiving personnel to properly plan inbound cargo flow so you can efficiently allocate resources to minimize costs. With real-time ETA s, your distribution center can proactively plan inbound inventory, optimize labor, and offer improved inventory management. By reconciling what has been dropped at any given location, we can efficiently manage per diem charges and minimize yard congestion.

5 Export Management Booking Management gwitrack monitors the booking and automatically sends notification of updates to Gulf Winds personnel. This includes: Matching shipping documents to port records to identify and resolve any issues prior to delivery. Get gwitrack for free when you use Gulf Winds to transport your containers. Notification when the containers are turned in at the port and rail terminals. Notification of changes to vessel and cutoff times to allow clients and their shippers to make any necessary adjustments to loading schedules. Customers will save money by being able to react immediately to rolled vessels and cutoff changes. Per Diem Management Steamship line per diem tariffs are monitored, and automated notifications inform clients prior to the free days expiring. Per diem fees are calculated and managed so that customers can make the most effective financial decisions regarding shipping and storage of containers. Ease of Use Booking and container information can be accessed via an online system or by using automated status reports. Complete reporting tools, from online management boards to automatic status reports are included. Monthly and annual volume reports and transit time reports provide the information to manage cargo and steamship lines and make the most effective shipping decisions. View all of your export bookings on one screen and check on their loading and delivery status. Don t guess when your containers are turned in, know it! Nationwide Shipping Management By tracking shipments from origin to final destination, gwitrack provides detailed monitoring, tracking and management tools for your nationwide container shipping.
