Staff from Dartrans were recently present at the Breakbulk Americas 2019 expo in Houston. Events like these present opportunities to expand our relationships with industry vendors and to grow our knowledge of transportation practices. Our staff were fortunate to meet a number of representatives from steamship lines, trucking companies, and ports to form partnerships and learn from one other about how the industry is changing.

International and domestic shipping relies on the principals of cooperation between various stakeholders; between vendors, customers, governments, shipping lines, etc. Our job as forwarder is to help manage that cooperation and ensure that cargo arrives timely, safely, and cost effectively. Events like Breakbulk Americas 2019 allow us to build and maintain the connections necessary to do just that.

Our ongoing aim has always been to grow our business by means of providing the best possible service to our clients. The lessons learned about the industry, the connections we make, and the forward thinking attitudes present at events like this make them invaluable. We hope to use this years event to make our service even better.

In the warm and intimate ambiance of the Sagamore Pendry, people gathered from around the globe to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Dartrans. A glamorous evening to celebrate the often stressful nature of its work.

According to President Bridget Lowy, being a freight forwarder is best described to the uninitiated as being a travel agent for international freight, facilitating the movement of cargo from one country to another. Whether dealing with Fortune 500 clients, government departments, shipping lines, or truckers, Dartrans has carved out a space for itself as a premier coordinator of international shipping.
