UWL celebrates their 10 year anniversary

PRESS RELEASE

CLEVELAND, OH (April 27, 2017) – The evolution of World Shipping, Inc., headquartered in Cleveland, OH, reached another milestone as their ocean NVOCC, forwarding and airfreight subsidiary, UWL, Inc. celebrated its 10-year anniversary in the first quarter of 2017.

Responding to the global market shift in the shipping industry, World Shipping created United World Line, now UWL, Inc., to serve as its asset-based, worldwide 3PL division in 2007. UWL is a completely full service, one stop shop for any clients’ global shipping needs. The company offers air and ocean services through a large network of ocean carriers, airlines and distribution channels. UWL’s advantages are significant, with World Shipping’s 55+ years of international container handling experience and full integration with other World Group asset-based companies.

“This anniversary is a celebration of UWL’s success since its founding,” commented President Duncan Wright, “This is a company that grew from the passion and vision that thrives at World Shipping, and their ability to evolve with the changes occurring within the Great Lakes region and as customer’s global logistics needs grew.”

Over the past 10 years, UWL has continued to grow while maintaining its dedication to personalized customer service. “Our focus has always been on providing exceptional service, flexibility and solutions to our customers. We continue to stay agile and responsive to the constant changes in the international shipping sector,” Wright explained. “We believe in long-term partnerships, transparency and trust. Our close customer relationships allow us to deliver unique solutions combining our global logistics expertise, domestic warehouse and distribution platform with our customized technology platform.”

When asked why he feels UWL has seen tremendous growth, Wright says: “One of the greatest keys to our success is our people, and the genuine heart at World Shipping. We have always operated as a customer centric organization, with unparalleled service at the local level. This a culture we are also pushing out into our regional expansion across the USA and we continue to operate as one company, not as a company of fragmented pieces.” UWL’s unique ethos is a driving force and will sustain them for many years to come.

Innovation, client-centricity and a world-class team approach have defined the global 3PL NVOCC & freight forwarding company since its inception. The future for UWL is very bright, and the Cleveland-based company has seen tremendous growth over the last decade. UWL now has over 170 employees and continues to grow its team of supply chain professionals, working to stay one step ahead – WE’RE ON IT!

Creating Efficiency – All the Way Through to the Last Mile

Guest Author: Jackie Csiszar, Director Business Development, World Shipping, Inc.

For those of us who work in – and with – the intermodal industry, one thing is clear. Often, the most challenging – and expensive – parts of the process are the first and last miles. I often hear from customers who, prior to working with my team and I at World Shipping, Inc., have experienced gaps in efficiency across the supply chain that cause them deep delays and balloon costs. The World Group difference has always been to innovate on behalf of our customers – connecting modes and expanding the services that count.

Recently I had the opportunity to speak about this topic at the 10th Annual Ohio Conference on Freight, held on August 22-24 at the Hilton Cleveland Downtown. The session I was a part of (called “Multi-Modal and the Last Mile” with fellow colleagues Bill Eisele of the Texas A&M Transportation Institute and Gregg Thauvette of the The Great Lakes Towing Company) explored the ways that our companies and organizations have worked to enhance performance and create connectivity from start to finish.

Ohio Conference on Freight - World Shipping, Inc.

It was an honor to share our experience as a leader in finding solutions for moving cargo throughout all modes of transportation – domestically and worldwide. Since 1960, when the St. Lawrence Seaway opened and our founder Jack Hunger recognized the need for vessel operations, we quickly grew into the leading vessel husbandry company in the Great Lakes. Today, we continue to understand the importance of that “first mile” as we service a wide array of customers – a testament to early innovation and a dedication to superior customer service.

We have built strong partnerships with our customers, each of the ports on the Great Lakes that we service (this year, adding all Lake Ontario Ports to our network), U.S. and Canadian Government Officials, along with many vendors who service these vessels. These types of relationships combine with our extensive track record in this region to allow us to be the premier partner to anyone moving freight – or thinking about doing so – in the region. This directly translates to our ability to help customers save money while conducting “last mile” transactions in the Great Lakes

Finally, I had a chance to showcase one of World Shipping’s newest examples of innovating to stay a step ahead of customer requests: The WDS Container Transload Facility (CTF). This one-of-a-kind logistics hub located in Columbus, Ohio perfectly brings together all services to support the process through the “last mile.”

It was a pleasure to be invited to share our story at the 10th Annual Ohio Conference on Freight. I look forward to more opportunities to come!

TankBag Launches Innovative Liner for ISO Tank Containers – Optimizes Fleet Utilization, Eliminates Prior Cargo Restrictions & Guarantees Product Integrity For Bulk Liquid Shippers

CLEVELAND, OH (March 31, 2016) – TankBagproudly announces the launch of its Single-Use Liner for ISO Tanks, providing an innovative solution for bulk liquid shippers & operators to optimize their fleet. TankBag for bulk liquid logistics eliminates prior cargo restrictions critical for product integrity and cleaning costs for tough to clean products.

Waldemar Finke, General Manager, TankBag (USA) LLC, further explains the new product’s benefits: “It’s becoming more and more difficult for operators to provide the right tank, in the right place.  TankBagprovides essentially a brand new tank for every load – meeting FOSFA, FDA, EU Food, and Kosher requirements, as well as sensitive pharmaceutical product requirements.  Further, it enables operators to have a clean tank available without expensive positioning, providing clean tanks in areas where cleaning is not an option, or where the cost of cleaning is prohibitive.  It will dramatically reduce the number of empty container transports while increasing fleet utilization.”

 

Innovation for Bulk Liquid Logistics

Fred Hunger, Chief Executive Officer, TankBag, elaborates on Finke’s statement, explaining: “TankBag is a game changer for ISO tank shippers, the operators, and the bulk liquid logistics industry as a whole.  We have examples where shippers utilizing IBC’s due to product integrity issues, can now realize the economies of scale achieved with ISO tanks.  So this innovation can also have the impact of expanding the ISO tank market.  All the strength and safety of an ISO Tank is now enhanced with TankBag – and is backed by the tested and proven approach of our R&D methodology and manufacturing process.”

Simple Process. Tested & Proven Results.

The TankBag liner is loaded and discharged by a pump using a loading hose through the manlid.  The simple loading process will be completed in 30-45 minutes. Discharging is straightforward and takes approximately the same amount of time.

The product is manufactured using a high-quality food-grade polyethylene, made from 100% virgin resin. The polypropylene valve, coupling and flanges are all made using proprietary molds by TankBag (USA) LLC. This innovative product provides all the strength and safety of an ISO Tank plus the tested and proven product safety of the TankBag.

TankBag ISO Tank liners are available immediately.

Transportation & Logistics International – Fall 2015 Cover Story – “End-to-End Service” World Shipping, Inc.

No matter where in the world a product or piece of machinery needs to go, World Shipping can get it there. “We’re a middle-market company that’s focused on high-service delivery to the discerning international shipper,” President and CEO Fred Hunger says.

World Shipping’s advantage in the logistics market stems from the ability to coordinate and connect its subsidiary companies, each of which specializes in aspects of the supply chain. “We tie together our assets, such as trucks, chassis, tank fleet, warehouses with our customs house brokerage, import/export teams, international offices and deep-sea operations. There’s virtually no international logistics move that we can’t solve or perform with our group,” Hunger explains.

The typical World Shipping customer is focused on manufacturing and marketing products and needs a partner to provide shipping solutions. “They’re relying on us to provide a global, effective distribution system for them,” Hunger says of clients. World Shipping’s subsidiaries have offices in more than a dozen countries, allowing the company to provide customers with a local structure and to work closely with manufacturing clients to lessen the time it takes to deliver a product to market. “Our company has a proud history of providing world-class customer service. We now look to build on that legacy with key investments in technology and skin in the game in terms of assets to service clients,” Hunger adds. “[We are] growing globally while maintaining our continued focus on service and quality.”

Fred Hunger’s father, Jack Hunger, founded World Shipping in 1960 following the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway the year before. The series of canals and locks made the Atlantic Ocean accessible to Great Lakes communities and provided business opportunities for logistics companies, such as World Shipping, to coordinate the rising delivery of goods to the region. By the 1960s, containers had become a more significant part of the shipping industry and World Shipping transitioned its business to liner agents for steam ships to enter the global trade market. “Over time we have grown strategically into a complete international logistics company,” Hunger says.
