ABOUT

Page International:
The Leader in Global Logistics

Page International, Inc. is a worldwide logistics service provider in ocean freight forwarding, customs brokerage, air freight, NVOCC and domestic transportation. Operational since 1994, Page is represented at more than 600 ports and global cities. From a qualified and experienced staff in Savannah and Atlanta, Ga., to our internationally affiliated offices and sophisticated state-of-the-art automation system, Page renders a higher level of customer service and expertise than any other freight forwarder or customs broker.

HISTORY

Page International, Inc. began its operations in February 1994 in a corner office of a warehouse with three employees. Later that year, it moved into a one-suite office of an office complex and grew to take in another two suites as the staff and clientele grew.

When Page opened in 1994, it only offered services in ocean exports, but expanded in time into ocean and air, customs brokerage, air exports, and NVOCC operations.

The information technology side of the business began almost immediately with auto preparation of documents and reports and has since evolved into true EDI applications with clients, carriers, and U.S. Customs.

Because of its connectivity with U.S. Customs, Page International was approved for Remote Location Filing, which allows clients the ability to clear cargo in any U.S. port from our Savannah headquarters. U.S. Customs also awarded us ACH and ACE status early on and both C-TPAT certification and validation were granted us almost immediately after Customs and Homeland Security announced its plans in that direction. Likewise, in our air exports operation, we have been given certification by TSA. Much has been accomplished in our short history and it’s all been centered around our clients’ needs. As we move forward, we will continue to do so in the same direction as our past, to be “Your Competitive Edge.”

MISSION STATEMENT

To ensure our clients a competitive edge in the international marketplace by providing unequalled customer service and expertise.

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
