ECU Worldwide's digital logistics platform - ECU360, has launched a new digital air freight service to streamline the shipping process for businesses of all sizes. The service is offered to ECU360’s customers based in the US by leveraging technology to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of air freight operations.
ECU Worldwide claims to have provided air freight services to 780 US customers, exporting to 310 airports across 174 countries.
The company has reportedly built a platform that streamlines the entire air freight process, from quoting to booking, including real-time tracking and live schedules. Through this latest technology, the company aims to offer a faster, more efficient and cost-effective way to move goods globally.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics, air freight accounts for approximately 35 per cent of the total value of U.S. international shipments. However, traditional air freight processes can be slow, lack efficiency, and are costly, making it challenging for businesses to move their goods quickly and cost-effectively.
“With the success of Domestic Trucking service, we are confident that our new digital air freight service will be a game-changer for businesses looking to streamline their shipping process and also have an alternate shipping medium as an option. With the gaping opportunity in the US market, opening air freight services to customers on ECU Worldwide's digital logistics platform - ECU360 is the right strategic move, as this will fulfil the urgent needs of businesses to transport high-value equipment, perishable goods, pharmaceuticals, and other time-sensitive cargo quickly and efficiently, contributing to the growth of various industries and the U.S. economy,” said Jitesh Shetty, global head- ECU360 of ECU Worldwide.
“We are committed to innovation and customer service, and our new digital air freight service is just one example of this. With over 35 years of experience in the logistics industry, ECU Worldwide has built a reputation for providing reliable and high-quality logistics solutions to businesses around the world,” he added.
