Troy Container Line has announced a new agency partnership with the European-based CARGOLINES.
The partnership comes just a year after Troy Container Line initiated its direct service to France and is a natural evolution of the success and growth the company has had in the French market. “The entire Troy Container Line team is pleased to partner with CARGOLINES,” commented Patricia Fitzgerald, COO of exports at Troy Container Line. “CARGOLINES’ commitment to service and competitive rates make them an ideal agency partner. This new relationship will improve services on this trade lane for our company’s European clients. We look forward to serving additional customers on a local, more personalized basis throughout France with CARGOLINES’ already-established five offices.”
The strategic decision to partner agencies was made to streamline Troy Container Line’s framework in Europe. SEACON CARGA, CARGOLINES’ sister company in France, has worked with Troy Container Line for several years, developing a consistent, reliable network for mutual customers. The new partnership, official as of July 2, 2012, will enhance networks and service capabilities for all three entities.
“CARGOLINES recognizes Troy Container Line’s reputation as an industry-leading NVOCC,” added Patrick Garcia of CARGOLINES. “The company’s expansive network in the continental U.S., coupled with their competitive market rates has created a model partnership by which we can offer a strong, dependable network to our clientele.”
The agency partnership with CARGOLINES is one of many new announcements from Troy Container Line in 2012. The NVOCC recently announced a new CFS in Savannah, Georgia, as well as a new Chicago-to-Rotterdam service and a direct consolidation service to Liverpool and Manchester, England.
