For businesses that want to broaden horizons and explore opportunities across the globe, it makes business sense to work with a logistics services provider that not only offers access to a global network but also has local expertise to navigate customs and other regulatory protocols in the appropriate manner in multiple destination countries.
Technology, modern means of communication and the opportunity to connect with anyone in the world at the click of a button, have surely brought the world closer. With increased exposure and cultural exchange, demand, consumption and consequently business supply chains have become global in nature.
“Now more than ever is the perfect time for businesses in USA to tap into global markets and consumption centres instead of restricting to their local regions. There is a plethora of opportunities out there and diversifying into multiple markets is also a good strategy to manage risks. Add to it the support of a global logistics partner like ECU Worldwide USA offering seamless cargo transportation to and from almost anywhere in the world, and you can really take your business to the next level”, says Vincent Argenzio, Chief Executive Officer, USA & Canada.
Bringing the world to businesses
When ECU Worldwide (then ECU Line) concluded its strategic acquisition of Econocaribe back in 2013, it brought together the strengths of Econocaribe’s glorious legacy of more than 50 years of driving trade between USA and the Caribbean region and ECU Worldwide’s network that spanned the globe.
Today, ECU Worldwide USA, part of ECU Worldwide’s global network that operates in more than 160 countries and serves over 2400 direct trade lanes is a trusted gateway into the world for numerous businesses in USA.
