UWL Expands with Houston, TX Services

CLEVELAND, OH (November 8, 2017)  UWL, an asset-based global forwarder, continues to quickly accelerate their growing footprint by expanding into Houston, TX. The Cleveland-based company has seen tremendous growth over the past decade, and now meets the demand to further invest in this market and its customer foundation in the Gulf region of the United States.

The Houston market is extremely important to UWL, as they are highly chemical focused. On the export side, about 75% of UWL’s total lift is chemicals – HazMat, Non-HazMat, resin, plastics and more.  Furthermore, Port Houston is one of the largest US Ports in terms of tonnage of goods handled at international levels. Houston is a hub for America’s petrochemical and oil and gas industry, and UWL nestles into this market prior to the much anticipated resin boom.

The company offers FCL/LCL ocean exports and imports, airfreight exports and imports, customs brokerage, project cargo, bulk liquid logistics, warehousing and distribution and more. In addition to the present portfolio of services, the UWL Houston branch provides in-house local drayage capabilities. UWL’s personnel is experienced, bilingual and offers local support to the customer base moving freight to Latin America.

The Houston office offers all of UWL’s world-class products and services, and is located at:
