Universal Logistics meets with Premier Cargo Alliance partners in Dubai (UAE)

Universal Logistics meets with Premier Cargo Alliance partners in Dubai (UAE) - Route Newsletter: March 2024

This year’s Premier Cargo Alliance (PCA) conference took place in the beautiful city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Dubai is also aptly referred to as the “City of Gold” because of its stunning growth from a sleepy Gulf port to a world-famous business crossroads in the space of a single generation.

Universal Logistics was well represented at this year’s three-day event by Paul Glionna, Vice President of Systems Development & Operations, and John Leis, Director of Client Relations.

During the 3-day conference, Paul and John conducted one-on-one meetings with over 30 people from 26 different forwarding companies representing 38 countries from around the globe. “Given the current geopolitical landscape and its impact on international trade, meeting in person with our freight forwarding agent partners from all corners of the world gives us a unique understanding and perspective of local markets and conditions impacting global trade. Our goal is to use these valuable insights to enhance our operations and to share with our clients,” says Paul Glionna.

If you are shipping internationally and need ocean or airfreight options and pricing, please contact Cathy Fong, Director – Freight Pricing.

Quick Tip #57
When Incoterms are incomplete

The shipping term FOB (Free on Board) is incomplete when the port of shipment and country are omitted. Moreover, you could end up paying extra if an incorrect assumption (guess) is made about your port of shipment (many countries have multiple ports of shipment).
