AIT Worldwide Logistics Improves Shipping to Latin America with New Less-than-Container Load Service
The company’s co-loading offering will feature unprecedented pricing transparency
ITASCA, ILLINOIS (January 4, 2016) – AIT Worldwide Logistics has relocated its Miami, Florida office to a new facility that supports the launch of the company’s Less-than-Container Load (LCL) service to Latin America.
The new location is a full-service gateway to Central and South America and according to AIT-Miami Station Manager Alex Toledo, the newly added LCL service fundamentally changes what customers and forwarders currently expect when shipping to Latin America. He says that AIT’s LCL product will provide customers and participating forwarders with better service, improved communications and transparent pricing.
By eliminating the middleman from the usual LCL experience, AIT will communicate directly with customers and forwarders about their shipments while offering predictable, regularly scheduled service to Costa Rica with more Latin American destinations being added in short order. Significantly, costs at destination – which are not visible to forwarders and customers accustomed to the typical LCL shipping model – will be quoted up front with full transparency.
AIT is making this improved LCL service possible by committing publicly to a policy of neutrality with respect to other forwarders who will be participating in the program.
“We confidently believe we are providing a vastly improved alternative in the LCL marketplace,” said Toledo. “Our interest lies in providing a better option and AIT will not attempt to lure customers away from other forwarders who are taking advantage of this highly beneficial service.”
The new AIT-Miami office is a secure gateway facility with multiple dock doors that handle all container sizes. The station offers a complete array of logistics products including customs brokerage and a ground-breaking LCL co-loading service. It is located 20 minutes from the Port of Miami and nearly adjacent to the Miami International Airport which handles more international air cargo than any other facility in the United States.
