GlobalFlex Map

Our Secret Spice.

Multi-national freight forwarders will tell you that having their own boots on the ground overseas is absolutely essential to properly manage your supply chain.

There is one tiny problem with the premise: It is totally false!

With Shapiro GlobalFlex™, You Gain

Access to a powerful worldwide network of expert 3PLs with various specialties who are highly motivated to exceed your expectations and ours.

The fact of the matter is that Shapiro can replace any individual agent if they fail to meet your very high standards for supply chain excellence. The multi-national forwarder simply cannot fire themselves on behalf of a client.

Additionally, Shapiro can place air cargo with our best air freight agent with that critical local knowledge, and we can move textiles with another Shapiro representative who has developed their business on that industry vertical (to name but a few examples). It all comes down to flexible yet integrated designs that are built to match the needs of your industry and your own business.

— We Don't Have to Invite "Uncle Larry" —

He's family and that's just the way it is. This, however, is business. With Shapiro's GlobalFlex™ network, there is no "Uncle Larry" that we're forced to invite to the party. We have total flexibility to use the best agent for you, for your business, and for getting the job done right. Isn't that refreshing?

Uncle Larry


The multi-national forwarder will scream, "but we're on a common global tech platform!"
The fact is that Shapiro GlobalFlex™ offers a seamless, deep structural technology integration which takes advantage of the very best features of our platform and our agent's platform. With today's technology, the parts really can be greater and more powerful than the whole.
