WORLDWIDE AFFILIATED OFFICES

Page International is a longstanding member of the World Cargo Alliance (WCA), the largest and strongest network of independent freight forwarders and customs brokers, with representation in nearly 200 countries. As the sole WCA member at the port of Savannah, our foreign affiliated offices throughout the world depend on our local expertise in the USA while reciprocating their own expertise in their respective home country. The benefits of utilizing the services of a WCA member office are obvious. Instead of using the branch office of an often apathetic global freight forwarder, WCA members are local to their markets and equipped with the necessary expertise to properly handle your shipment on a true door-to-door basis, keeping at the forefront all governmental requirements and relationships with necessary local vendors. All offices are small- to medium-sized companies, who are financially tested, meet annually at a minimum, are fully bonded, and who provide the personalized service that the multinational freight forwarders and brokers simply cannot offer.

Possessing the latest technology, our affiliated offices, in conjunction with Page International, can supply the automated reporting, tracking and tracing demanded by today’s largest global shippers. Most importantly, our enormous group purchasing power enables all offices to enjoy superior rates in every facet of international trade, which are then passed on to our clients.

“Everything has gone so smoothly, I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Page International truly sets the standard of excellence for other freight forwarders. You are one in a million.”

To Clients, Associates, Vendors of Page International:

 Page International has been closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 coronavirus intrusion into the United States and want to assure each of you that we are taking the necessary steps to play our part in both mitigating the spread of the virus and keeping our employees safe while also maintaining our service levels during this unprecedented time. As of today, we have no diagnosed cases of COVID-19 among our staff and we have already started preventative measures to safeguard our office employees.

 As our home office is located in a hurricane zone in Savannah, GA, we already have in place a tested and proven Disaster Recovery Plan which will set a good baseline as to how we also respond to this situation. With recent large investments in our IT infrastructure and capabilities, we will be implementing an aggressive Remote-Work Policy effective on Tuesday, March 24th which will continue indefinitely and assessed weekly. A part of this plan will be an effort to immediately reduce the staff in our office building by at least 50% and hopefully more as we ensure our service and communication levels are not compromised. Each of our teams, corporate wide, will have alternating schedules i.e. remote and in-office, depending on the demands and business requirement of each of our clients. We recognize that Page International provides comprehensive global supply chain management services and we must be there to ensure, not to prohibit or slow down, the intended movement of cargo over international borders on a constant basis. With this said and as we implement this new policy, please be assured that our staff will be equipped with the latest in virtualized technology, iron-mountain secured servers and other important equipment in Spartanburg, SC, company equipped and enabled mobile devices, laptops and tablets, as well as office phone extension call-forwarding and a variety of other tools to ensure your company's cargo is fully and properly managed no different than our normal operating environment. Additionally, we have temporarily prohibited all non-mandatory visitors to our office not including the USPS, and various courier services or companies similarly in nature.
 
As always, our top priority is the health of the men and women of Page International who we feel make up the very best in this industry. With that said, I have no doubt that our leadership team and, our staff as whole, will exercise the same great pride and professionalism that they show in our office everyday no matter what location they are at. The next few weeks will no doubt be a unique situation for our company and industry, however, we remain hopeful and optimistic for a quick recovery.
 
We appreciate your cooperation, understanding, and, most importantly, your ongoing support of Page International. We recognize we are vital business partners who are all in this together. Please do feel free to contact me or your company representative with any comments, questions or suggestions.


Sincerely,
Patrick Page
President/COO
