Bellevue, WA – February 15, 2011 -- Red Arrow Logistics, a logistics and transportation company serving fast growing, complex and high value supply chains, was awarded its non-vessel-operating common carrier (NVOCC) license as an ocean freight forwarder by the Federal Maritime Commission. The Federal Maritime Commission is an independent regulatory agency responsible for the regulation of ocean borne transportation in the foreign commerce of the U.S.
This license enables Red Arrow Logistics to immediately provide its customers and prospective customers with ocean freight forwarding services. “We are thrilled to have our NVOCC license to expand our service offering with the same level of attention and passion we provide with all of our services,” said Liz Lasater, CEO of Red Arrow Logistics. This will enable Red Arrow Logistics to meet requests from customers to leverage business relationships into other logistics services with additional modes of transport and trade lanes.
“With many customers in the Fortune 100 ranks, as well as the U.S. Department of Defense, we are proud to continue to demonstrate that a small company with big experience and a commitment to customer service excellence can compete with large 3PLs,” Lasater explained.
