Cargo Consolidators Agency (CCA), a Trinidad-based company with over 40 years of experience in international freight, launched its Guyana subsidiary at the Marriott Hotel, Georgetown on Friday evening.

The company has been involved in the international movement of oil & gas supplies since its inception in 1976. CCA understands the freight forwarding needs of oil and gas service providers. It has worked for and is currently contracted by a number of multi-national firms to manage their daily cargo movements worldwide. Some of these same multi-national firms are now operating in Guyana.

Due to Guyana’s geographic proximity to Trinidad, CCA Guyana’s parent company was requested by clients a few years ago to assist with 3rd party moves from Guyana.

This demand increased exponentially, and it was a natural progression towards opening an office in Georgetown, staffed by Guyanese to support the service providers’ operations.

Before the launch of CCA Guyana, the company has been partnering with Guyanese for more than 20 years.

Managing Director Sean Patience said the company has facilitated trade between Trinidad and Guyana through its weekly export LCL (Less than Container Load) service, moving freight of all kinds. CCA’s Guyanese team will gain knowledge of Oil and Gas logistics techniques, and procedures as it pertains to the international movement of freight.

They will also be trained in specialized procedures, such as Dangerous Goods Handling and Packing. Further, on a larger scale CCA will bring additional LCL export capacity to the shipping industry in Guyana.

The company has been growing globally at a rapid pace in response to demand for short- and long-term storage, more frequent LCL shipments and 3PL (3rd Party Logistics) services. Its Miami office offers services to Latin America and in Trinidad CCA expanded from one warehouse to three, in a very short space of time.

“As a family run business started by my father Mr. Ronald Patience,” Managing Director Sean Patience said, “we maintain his founding values of integrity, reliability and efficiency, in order to build win-win relationships with our customers, agents and vendors.”

Through its founding values, CCA hopes to bring the efficiencies it has learned throughout the last 43 years in the shipping industry to Guyana. CCA Guyana looks forward to enhancing the services offered in country and contributing to Guyana’s continual development.
