SEKO Logistics and Air & Ground World Transport (AGWorld) have inked a new deal establishing a partnership to create new cross-border growth opportunities for shippers doing business between Asia and the United States. The move is intended to provide customers based in, or shipping to, these regions alternative options to transport goods amid evolving global trade disputes.
The companies will work together to leverage AGWorld’s network of offices in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Taipei, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Manila and Ho Chi Minh City, as well as other locations, and SEKO Logistics’ global network of more than 120 branches in 40 countries.
“We see this as a long-term relationship with outstanding potential to broaden our growth in the U.S., Asia and Europe,” said SEKO Logistics President and CEO James Gagne. “SEKO customers will gain from greater access to the Southeast Asia market with AG World’s significant airfreight tonnage and scalable capacity platform, while AGWorld clients in the high-tech, retail, manufacturing, health care and other industries can plug into our coast-to-coast U.S. network and SEKO’s proven value-added 3PL and forwarding expertise, cross-border parcel platform with Section 321 and Type 86 express clearance capabilities and portfolio of services bundled with its award-winning technology.”
