SEKO Logistics and Air & Ground World Transport (AGWorld) have entered a partnership that will generate opportunities for shippers doing business between Asia and the US.
The collaboration will help shippers to ease the impact of the US-China trade war on their global operations.
As part of SEKO and AGWorld’s partnership, they will offer clients services to develop global trade relations.
Clients will also have access to both companies’ networks: SEKO Logistics has more than 120 branches in 40 countries and 60 of its branches are in North America. Meanwhile, AGWorld has offices in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Taipei, Shenzhen, Guangzhou Manila and Ho Chi Minh City, among other locations.
James Gagne, president and chief executive of SEKO Logistics, commented: “We are excited to be partnering with AGWorld. 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 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, healthcare and other industries, can plug into our US network, third-party logistics and forwarding expertise, cross-border parcel platform and portfolio of services.”
Shirley Yeung, chief operating officer of AGWorld, added: “We’re excited to offer our scope of services to SEKO’s clients and locations with focus on airfreight forwarding into the United States from Asia.”
