Agility has launched launch its new Container Freight Station (CFS), a consolidation and redistribution service, from its hub in Dubai. The service will be offered to all shippers and consignees who have shipments of less than a container load (LCL).
Agility believes that by creating this hub, it can consolidate cargoes originating from various world ports and redistribute them throughout the Gulf and Africa. It has co-launched this service in the Far East and Europe.
Chief executive Greg Olsen said: “Consolidation of LCL cargo is an important part of the ocean freight business and while we appreciate this is not a new product; we believe we have a competitive advantage to offer our clients – our global network.”
