Press Release
Thursday, January 17, 2013

Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Peru & Uruguay are now included in the expanding ocean transport portfolio of ABF.

"With an established presence in Europe, China, India and Southeast Asia countries, South America is a natural extension of our global coverage," said Carlos Martinez-Tomatis , ABF GSCS division vice president. "ABF Global now covers nearly 90 percent of the total ocean international market to and from the United States. Our goal is to reach 96 percent of the total import/export market, which we anticipate achieving before the end of 2013."

ABF Global is now providing a single contact for full-container-load (FCL) and expedited less-than-container-load (LCL) supply chain solutions. Ocean transport for these South American countries is in addition to ABF Global's previously announced coverage in Europe and Asia.

The provider's FCL transport solutions offer convenient and economical ocean transport with end-to-end visibility. ABF controls dedicated space on ships providing frequent service from and to all major worldwide ports. As a result, the company offers single-contact, expedited LCL/LTL solutions for customers who have international manufacturing centers or suppliers.

As the principal subsidiary of Arkansas Best Corporation, ABF operates as a global provider of customizable supply chain solutions.
