Hawthorne Global has Talented Freight Expeditors to Move Your Materials

Freight expeditors ensure the efficient movement of materials and freight within the global logistics network. As international expeditors, Hawthorne Global utilizes its 50 plus years of experience, solid network of over 130 freight forwarder companies through its United Shipping ownership, to ensure manufactured goods and raw materials are moved from anywhere in the world as smoothly as possible. Choosing freight forwarding companies without the necessary experience and relationships can lead to nightmarish scenarios of delayed shipments, damaged cargo and even lost cargo. This will leave you unable to meet the demands of your company and customers.

Hawthorne Global utilizes its network of freight expeditors around the world to satisfy its customers in a demanding industry for:

  • Rig parts
  • Steel, valves, pipe and tubular goods
  • Tile, refractory, wax and plastics
  • Chemicals
  • Granite and Construction Materials
  • Retail goods
  • Alcohol and spirits for resale
  • And much more

With over 50 years of industry experience, we have many loyal and satisfied customers that have been with us for over 35 years. Our relationships with over 130 international freight expeditors, in 77 countries and over 350 locations, gives Hawthorne Global the advantage to expedite movements and ensure quality service and proper handling from origin to final destination.

Steam ship relationships at the port of origin can be one of the greatest assets freight expeditors have at their disposal. Steam ship lines cater to the shipper who provides them with the most cargo and small shippers can see their cargo bumped in favor of a larger shipper. Freight forwarders at Hawthorne Global provide local ties and relationships that have the necessary clout to give your cargo priority. Our ownership in United Shipping provides us with the influence required to classify us as one of the best freight forwarders and freight expeditors in the world. We have authority needed to move your cargo with confidence. In recognition of our relationship with our United Shipping partners, Hawthorne Global was awarded the "Effective Communication Award" by United Shipping in 2011, as voted on by the partners in recognition of our ability to effectively communicate around the world.
