New service provides additional capacity, speed, and flexibility for U.S. exporters
CLEVELAND, Ohio – Today, UWL announced the beginning of an air freight consolidation service that will depart Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) on a weekly basis. This service provides capacity, speed, and options for customers looking to export their freight quickly from the entire Gulf region to Europe.
“Our customers are telling us they need options to move goods, partially because of the ongoing volatility of ocean shipping,” says UWL President Duncan Wright. “By adding this service, we can guarantee availability and capacity, which provides reliability and peace-of-mind for planning when freight will arrive.”
This weekly, direct flight departs Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) on Fridays, with cargo arriving in Düsseldorf Airport and delivered to its final destination in just 3-4 days. Cargo booked will not be split, will be deconsolidated in a customs-bonded warehouse, and available for pick-up within 12-24 hours of arrival into Germany.
Director of Air Freight James Constantinidis explained the value of the service, saying, “This is going to help export customers a great deal. We’re providing an all-in-one advantage that ensures goods are not delayed or backlogged and customers have full visibility into the process.”
Combined with the power of WorldScope, customers can rely on real-time tracking, tracing, and visibility tools to keep an eye on their cargo as it makes its journey across the Atlantic.
