CLEVELAND, OH (November 8, 2017) – UWL, an asset-based global forwarder, continues to quickly accelerate their growing footprint by expanding into Houston, TX. The Cleveland-based company has seen tremendous growth over the past decade, and now meets the demand to further invest in this market and its customer foundation in the Gulf region of the United States.
The Houston market is extremely important to UWL, as they are highly chemical focused. On the export side, about 75% of UWL’s total lift is chemicals – HazMat, Non-HazMat, resin, plastics and more. Furthermore, Port Houston is one of the largest US Ports in terms of tonnage of goods handled at international levels.
