Despite the continuing worldwide pandemic, lockdown, blanked voyages and grounded aircraft, Norman Global Logistics is uplifting and transporting medical, PPE and non-essentials cargo global by all modes.
Globally we move tens of thousands of full containers (FCL) each year and have core carrier agreements, working with preferred shipping lines across each alliance, which means we can protect space, even as the lines blank sailings.
Our most popular weekly LCL consolidation services, continue to operate normally from Hong Kong and mainland China.
Shippers can access Norman Global Logistics LCL consolidation services in all popular sourcing origins, with regular departures and competitive rates.
Global air consolidation services have been disrupted by the Covid-19 outbreak, in particular form China and the United States.
For urgent shipments, from either origin, we are leveraging airline relationships to offer a full range of air freight solutions depending on the urgency and size of consignment.
To counter air freight disruption we have enhanced our Sea/Air services, with more frequent departures across China and flexible routing, to provide a greater choice of transit and rates, which has been particularly useful in developing resilient PPE supply chains.
