Ocean freight volumes from Europe to the USA expected to rise

Posted on Thursday, March 19th by

The COVID-19 outbreak has not only threatened the World's health, but also the economy and global trade. After the USA Government's decision to temporarily suspend air travel from Europe to the USA, there are foreseen consequences in the global air freight movement, such as the belly space for cargo. This measure is expected to affect both volume capacity and cargo rates. 

Many countries have made preventive decisions and imposed restrictions on the movement of people and goods worldwide, which will cause large-scale rescheduling and cancellation of flights. Consequently, this decision will lead to massive delays and non-availability of space for air freight transport.

Considering the context and the fact that air freight transport has been restricted, ocean freight transport is becoming an advantageous alternative, with a wider spectrum in transport across the globe. ECU Worldwide, the global leader in LCL consolidation, provides ocean freight services for all customers who want to transport cargo across global shipping routes. The logistic company offers a developed infrastructure of digital tools and processes facilitating the tracking and tracing of the cargo at every stage of the transport cycle. 

ECU360, an online platform, offers door-to-door rates and manage cargo transportation across many destination points within the USA as well as other countries, along with online freight visibility. The strong relationships with major global carriers allow ECU Worldwide to offer transport routes and schedules according to the business requirements of customers.

Tim Tudor, Chief Executive Officer, ECU Worldwide, declared: “With a proven expertise in handling diverse cargo categories and a team of expert professionals providing assistance and advisory on packaging, documentation, customs and key formalities, ECU Worldwide is committed to providing convenient and hassle-free experience to its customers"
