SEKO Logistics and Air & Ground World Transport (AGWorld) have signed a strategic partnership to create new cross-border growth opportunities for shippers doing business between Asia and the United States as global trade disputes accelerate demand for broader geographic supply chain solutions.
Working together, SEKO and AGWorld will offer clients a unique platform of services to develop new trade relationships, leveraging AGWorld’s network of offices in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Taipei, Shenzhen, Guangzhou Manila and Ho Chi Minh City among other locations and SEKO Logistics’ more than 120 branches in 40 countries.
Clients based in Asia or buying goods from suppliers in the region will gain immediate access to SEKO’s 60-branch network across North America as well as its award-winning demand chain solutions, including Last Mile across the United States, White Glove, Omni-Channel Logistics, Cross Border Parcel Consolidations and Domestic Expedite.
James Gagne, president & CEO, of SEKO Logistics, said, “We see this as a long-term relationship with outstanding potential to broaden our growth in the US, Asia and Europe.
“Both companies have a great deal to offer each other and our respective clients. SEKO customers will gain from greater access to the south-east Asia market with AG World’s significant airfreight tonnage and scalable capacity platform, while AGWorld clients in the high-tech, retail, manufacturing, healthcare and other industries can plug into our coast-to-coast US network.”
