Estes Air Forwarding Opens Global Solutions Office in Charleston, SC

RICHMOND, VA—Managing Director of International Gary Weekley announced the opening of a new Estes Air Forwarding “Global Solutions” office in Charleston, SC. The strategically located office will be the focal point for the company’s import and ocean operations and will allow Estes Air Forwarding LLC to attract highly qualified individuals in the ocean transportation field.

Strategically located in close proximity to port activity, the airport, U.S. Customs and parent company Estes’ LTL terminal, the facility is staffed for growth and will provide additional resources as needed.

The Global Solution office intends to utilize the Estes terminal operations for the U.S. distribution of ocean container cargo. This affords both Estes and Estes Air Forwarding customers an end-to-end supply chain opportunity to improve efficiencies in their transportation programs.

“Research shows a continued growth in ocean traffic, and more so, the use of U.S. trucking to move this cargo inland from the ports,” said Weekley. “Estes Air Forwarding is positioning itself to support this continued trend in order to provide our customers with the best possible service in the market today.”
