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.

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.

Their core business is the handling of Less than Container Load (LCL), Full Container Load (FCL), and Airfreight shipments into numerous worldwide destinations.
