Ocean freight sees an opportunity


COVID-19 has destabilised global trade and the economy. As major trade countries like the USA, UK and Germany suspend air travel, cargo movement has slowed. Ocean freight transport is emerging as a viable and cost-effective alternative with a wider reach for moving cargo to destinations across the globe, say those with an interest in the mode.

ECU Worldwide offers ocean freight services and customized cargo solutions across multiple trade lanes including to and from Europe to USA and Canada. ECU360, the company’s online platform, enables customers to get door-to-door rates and manage cargo transportation across a number of origin and destination points within the USA as well as other countries, along with online freight visibility.
