OIA Global, a worldwide transportation, supply chain management, and packaging provider, announces new LCL services to Canada as the first phase of a 2017 expansion of its dedicated LCL Express programs. The service began May 1.
"Customer demand for our Express LCL services has been very strong," says Dante Fornari, OIA's Executive Vice President, Global Logistics. "The Canadian market has been on our radar since we launched the first LCL programs in 2008 into the Midwest.”
OIA Global has been expanding ocean services for its customers that continue to optimize their import/export logistics spend by utilizing consolidation services for shipments that formerly may have required airfreight service in order to meet time-critical deadlines.
Bill Yankow, OIA's Director of LCL Consolidation, notes, "The new service includes automated shipment visibility from origin to final destination driving supply chain simplicity and ease of use for the small-to-medium-sized importers into Canada." OIA will be announcing LCL expansions into several new markets later in 2017.
