This expansion has been pursued with the belief that we could together add a lot more value to customers who would be delighted to associate with us in the US market as we learn from each other and work towards integrating systems, processes and offering unified/enhanced services & products, making us a competitive & qualitative player. Hence, we have chosen a strategic future road map by integrating the top leadership of Econocaribe within the ECU organization structure. All the previous shareholders & management team shall play important roles in their respective elevated positions to drive a common vision which is to be the leading global NVOCC and for Avvashya Group to be a billion dollar enterprise by end of 2014. The combined revenue currently stands at USD 800 million. The new structure will help us to achieve our objective to be the global leader in the NVOCC market. This is a perfect platform to launch the future activities of ECU, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary,” he added.

According to Shanta Martin, CEO Indian Subcontinent, Middle East, Southern & East Africa Econocaribe is a non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC) with offices throughout the United States and partners throughout the world. “They specialize in freight consolidation, with receiving terminals located throughout the United States, and in FCL services. One of the major strengths of the company was its extensive export sailing schedule to over 125 destinations throughout Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Econocaribe has guaranteed space with all carriers and private off dock warehousing at most destinations. Their core business is the handling of Less than Container Load (LCL), Full Container Load (FCL), and Airfreight shipments into numerous worldwide destinations.
