"Partnering with a multinational NVOCC as esteemed as IFS is an ideal foundation by which to expand our exports to Spain while upholding Troy's unwavering commitment to personalized service. We look forward to working with a partner that shares our company's vision for service and efficiency."
The new partnership with IFS also allows for direct import services from Valencia and Barcelona into New York, a first-time service for Troy Container Line clients. Hellow and the company's import department, based in Charlotte, N.C., look forward to using their experience and expertise in the importation process to offer IFS clients the personalized service and care on which their company's reputation is built.
"The entire import team is looking forward to the new demand this partnership will bring," added Hellow. "Patricia and I have been involved in every aspect of the negotiation process for the cooperation as well as managing the internal operations associated with this partnership. We look forward to building on this new business with the top-quality service that is the Troy Container Line tradition."
