ABF Global Supply Chain Services has added South America to its coverage area.
Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Peru and Uruguay are now included in ABF Global’s transport portfolio. Services provided include single contact for full-container-load and expedited less-than-container-load.
ABF, part of Arkansas Best Corp., which is headquartered in Fort Smith, has added South America to its international operation along with Europe and Asia.
“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.”
