OEC Group, a global non-vessel operating common carrier that provides ocean and air freight, customs brokerage, cargo insurance, and technical services, has expanded its operations into Milwaukee, WI to solidify its presence in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions.

The new Milwaukee, WI branch will be headed by James Vanderloo, a career logistician with more than 10-years of experience at OEC Group helping hundreds of businesses across varying industry verticals manage their supply chains.

“Businesses in Milwaukee will now have prime access to all major carriers around the globe, which will make it significantly easier for them to import the goods they need to grow and thrive,” said James Vanderloo, Head of OEC Group’s Milwaukee, WI Branch. “We are bringing more than 40-years of industry knowledge and relationships to the greater Milwaukee region. As a result, all businesses in this region can now adequately plan their supply chains with a local trans-pacific specialist on their doorstep, ensuring that their inventories will remain strong and move freely – regardless of what socio-economic issue is affecting the world.”

Milwaukee will mark OEC Group’s third new office in Middle America this year following St. Louis and Detroit – two provisional offices that expanded due to significant organizational growth and the need to accommodate more businesses in those locations.
