Globe Express Services expands LCL service
Third-party logistics provider Globe Express Services said Thursday it is expanding its Asia-to-U.S. less-than-containerload program to include more service options along high potential trade lanes.
Ziad Korban, Globe's Hong Kong-based chairman and chief executive officer, said in a statement that the new service is 'a strategic shift for the company. GES has been operating LCL service for many years along niche trade lanes required by our customers, typically an additional service meant to complement primary import businesses of multi-vendor consolidation, freight forwarding, NVOCC/OTI (non-vessel-operating common carrier/ocean transportation intermediaries) and customs brokerage.
'Now we are moving wholeheartedly into the robust LCL market segment, with the intention of capturing a significant market share and providing some very interesting shipping options,' Korban said.
Globe Express Services will operate regular LCL service originating at the following 'free-on-board' points: Hong Kong and Yantian, Ningbo, and Shanghai, China. Service will be provided to reputable warehouses in Charlotte, N.C.; Miami; Atlanta; and Columbus, Ohio.
The program will commence Monday.
