Leading 3PL Provider Announces Expansion in Seattle Region

Team Worldwide, a leader in 3PL and global freight forwarder, announced this week expansion efforts for the company’s Seattle branch, “Team Seattle.”

“The opening of Team Seattle is a strategic part of our domestic and global expansion. Seattle is an important ocean gateway to and from the US. It will allow us to better support the needs of our customers in the Northwest and will also help expand our cross border services with Team Worldwide, Ltd. in Canada,” Team Worldwide CEO Jason Brunson said.

As strategic efforts kick-off, the Seattle-based branch has an anticipated opening for December. This initiative aligns well with the results currently seen in the Tacoma-Seattle port regions which are currently ranking as the fourth largest container gateway through the merging and creation of Northwest Seaport Alliance.

“Our mutual association with Team and their network allows us to invest in our passion for Supply Chain Management; providing solutions for our customers, with an array of services, to meet their individual expectations,” General Manager Brian Purugganan said.
