The collaborative port logistics platform for international beneficial cargo owner (BCO) shippers, EDRAY has announced the opening of its new headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina.

“EDRAY is committed to strengthening and engaging with the local Charlotte logistics and supply chain community with monthly networking events where ideas are exchanged and meaningful business relationships are developed. To move this initiative forward, EDRAY has created the South End Supply Chain Group, which meets on the first Thursday of the month at a brewery in South End,” stated the company.

Charlotte is home to many leading shipping industry businesses including ocean carriers, freight forwarders, third-party logistics providers and trucking, and EDRAY estimates that the logistics and distribution business community of the city will benefit the company.

Logistics and distribution businesses in Charlotte are growing 66% faster than the national average, according to EDRAY, and over the next five years are projected to grow at almost double the national average.

“We chose the thriving Charlotte region for our corporate headquarters due to its solid growth, talented workforce and the quality of life it offers,” said Reade Kidd, Co-Founder and CEO of EDRAY.

“It’s important that we provide our current and future team with a rewarding and favourable business environment that supports the important work they do improving cargo velocity at ports and terminals and reducing logistics costs for our customers,” he pointed out.

In the meantime, the company has also established a new office in Long Beach, California.
