The global provider of comprehensive logistics services has added five new freight-forwarding offices at major US and European gateways. These locations join those already along the US West and East Coasts. The company has also grown its China market coverage, as well.
Already existing in the US are operations in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Miami. Joining them now are the new facilities in Chicago, Atlanta and New York. The two new European locations are at Rotterdam and Amsterdam. Schneider Logistics strategy guiding the new US operations is to offer shipping customers the option of diversifying their points of delivery away from dependence on West Coast ports. In Europe some 70% of freight at the two new locations is either inbound or outbound from other European countries, including those in the emerging Eastern European region.
John Ferguson, vice president, International, for Schneider Logistics, observes, “These locations and services are key components in our strategy to build a comprehensive, door-to-door, global logistics operation that spans air, ocean and truck transportation. Plus, the addition of international associates with extensive industry expertise gives us the depth and skills needed to serve customers’ global shipping requirements.”
