NEW YORK, December 2, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Horizon Air Freight and Inchcape Shipping Services jointly announced a new partnership that will streamline the logistics of Inchcape’s last mile spare parts and door-to-bridge delivery across the Americas.
As one of the oldest and largest port agencies and marine service providers in the world, Inchcape’s vision for a “smoother, smarter ocean” has led the company to create its new line of services. Marine Supply Chain Solutions (MSCS). MSCS manages integrated maritime services for shipping lines in all ports, increasing efficiency, simplicity and value to customers.
âI was looking for a maritime logistics company that would partner closely with us as we built this line of services together,â explains Waldroup Crystal, Senior Manager of MSCS – Americas. âI wanted a partner who already had a global network of transport companies, someone who could handle both last mile and door-to-bridge deliveries anywhere in the world. “
According to Waldroup, the right partner would also have:
- Excellent internal processes
- Timely communications
- Ingenious solutions
