Watco launches Supply Chain Services International
Watco Supply Chain Services LLC today announced the launch of a new division, Watco Supply Chain Services International LLC, a registered non-vessel operating common carrier and indirect air carrier.
The new division will complement Watco's core port and terminal services, which include oversized/overweight project cargo, break bulk, air/ocean charters, specialized containers, less-than-container load and full-container load, Watco officials said in a press release.
Annie Yan, who has 20 years of experience in international shipping, joined Watco to lead the new segment.
"We see ever-growing demand for these international services, particularly in and out of the Houston market," said Eric Wolfe, president of Watco Supply Chain Services International. "Annie and her team began moving air and containerized shipments immediately and we look forward to see forward growth propelled via the strategic alignment with other Watco assets.”
Watco Cos. LLC provides rail transportation, terminal and port, supply chain, and mechanical services. Emerging from its rail and industrial roots, Watco Supply Chain Services International will aim to offer differentiated inland options, encompassing truck, rail, barge or other specialized handling to complement the air and ocean services, Watco officials said.
