When you work with UWL, a dedicated logistics coordinator will be there to handle your shipments every step of the way and provide proactive updates throughout the process.  You can count on your UWL Logistics Coordinator to give you expert guidance and continually evaluate your shipping activity, providing time- and cost-saving solutions.

Our technology provides greater visibility to your supply chain, too. Whether you need regular email updates, global tracking & tracing of shipments or EDI connectivity to manage your logistics activity, we're on it!  Learn more about our technology, WorldScope, here.

Additionally, our Market Updates will keep you informed about changing regulations or logistics news that may affect your business.


Safety & Security

Because of their potential impact on health, safety, security, and the environment (HSSE), shipping chemicals can present unique logistical challenges.

Our logistics coordinators will ensure that all operational and safety requirements are followed to a tee and that all documentation is prepared accurately and submitted on time.

Our fully hazmat-certified personnel and vetted network of carriers know how important it is to comply with federal regulations, from load planning to proper placarding and more.

This translates to minimized risk and maximized safety performance for your company.  We are a resource with a strong reputation, safety ratings, and compliance history.

Our strategic global network gives us access to capacity and equipment where and when you need it most.
