Troy Container Line, one the world’s largest American-owned NVOCCs, today announced a new partnership with Chicago-based Basic Warehousing & Distribution, Inc. As of Monday, February 17, CFS services for export and FCL transportation will go through Basic Warehousing’s Elk Grove Village location. The new CFS is centrally located outside of Chicago and adjacent to O’Hare International Airport with access to several major highways, easily connecting the warehouse to a global supply chain. The recent announcement solidifies Troy’s standing as a full service provider in the Midwest region.

“At Troy Container Line, we continually evolve to meet the needs of our growing client base,” commented Patricia L. Fitzgerald, COO of Exports. “Direct exporting from the Chicagoland area to hundreds of destinations around the world, including European, South America and Asian trade lanes, will be enhanced with this new partnership. Our export team looks forward to working with the Basic Warehousing & Distribution team in this market.”

The Basic Warehousing & Distribution CFS is an approved and fully bonded Customs and Border Protection Container Freight Station. The 100,000-square-foot facility includes 13 door docks and full indoor-outdoor surveillance systems. This new partnership will further expand Troy Container Line’s presence in Chicago and offer enhanced, convenient services to and from the Mid-West market. Importing to Chicago and beyond is now easier with the short lines and flexible hours for cargo pickups offered through Troy’s partnership with Basic Warehousing & Distribution.
