Schneider Logistics has announced the opening of five new freight forwarding offices at major gateways in the United States and Europe. Schneider says these offices further expand its global supply chain footprint and provide shippers with more options for their growing international import and export needs.
The new freight forwarding offices in the United States include Chicago, Atlanta and New York, while the European offices include Rotterdam and Amsterdam. About 70 percent of the freight handled in Rotterdam and Amsterdam is destined for, or originates from, other European countries, including Eastern Europe. In the United States, East Coast and midland port demand is on the rise as companies look for opportunities to diversify their predominantly West Coast options for points of delivery.
“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,” says John Ferguson, vice president, international, for Green Bay, Wis.-based Schneider Logistics. “Plus, the addition of international associates with extensive industry expertise gives us the depth and skills needed to serve customers’ global shipping requirements.”
The new offices and their teams complement Schneider’s existing freight forwarding expertise. The company already has a presence in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and Miami. Additionally, Schneider Logistics says its recent growth in China will continue to enable its expertise to link global supply chains.
