Cargo Connections welcomes two new members to its network. Barnes & Kimura LLC Located in Washington, which specializes in reefer and dry export ocean containers from the USA, and Namibia based freight forwarders Pronto Global Air & Ocean Freight.
Barnes & Kimura Owner Amy Barnes has worked in the freight forwarding industry for over 20 years and says; “We are Barnes & Kimura, a freight forwarder with a focus on exceptional customer service! We understand the specific requirements needed for a reliable international shipping service and not only do we find the best shipping rates, we are also dedicated to providing updates and guidance as well as excellent customer service throughout the entire process. Our expertise is in exports, providing world-class assistance to shipping needs, from the complexities of shipment processes to providing careful documentation services.”
Amy has an extensive background in handling refrigerated cargo and explains; “Usually, our client ships full 40′ reefers of frozen cod and crab to Asia and Europe but this was a special circumstance. The main challenge was working with dry ice as it requires dangerous cargo labelling with airline restrictions. As well as further documentation, it had to be carefully packaged correctly inside each case and clearly labelled“.

Our independence gives us the flexibility to source the best deals and services available to our customers and partners.
