U-Ocean blows into Windy City

2021 01 11

U-Freight North America, the US subsidiary of the U-Freight Group, has added a consolidation centre for ocean freight shipments at its freight hub in Chicago, joining its other main ocean freight hub in Los Angeles.

The company says that the move will enable it to better serve customers on the US East and West coasts, as well as the markets in the Mid West.

U-Ocean is the ocean freight arm of the global freight forwarder offering scheduled weekly ocean freight export and import consolidation services in numerous trades.

Frank Rettig, who has a wealth of ocean freight forwarding experience on both the import and export side has been recruited to assist in running the new operation in Chicago and further appointments are being considered.

Rick Keller, CEO of U-Freight North America says that the move is further evidence of the company’s intention to boost its presence in Chicago.

“We have recently remodelled our Chicago hub to include an e-commerce fulfilment centre so that it is capable of providing e-commerce logistics services.

“Our ocean freight tonnages are very buoyant as a result of the wholesale change in the way that manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and consumers are coming to the market through e-commerce, and this latest move will allow us to meet customers’ requirements more efficiently.”
