NEW YORK, July 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Associated Global Systems (AGS) was founded in 1958 as Associated Air Freight and operated primarily as a domestic and international air freight forwarder. The company discovered a special niche in offering highly personalized and flexible services that were otherwise not available from its competitors.
Early on, the company's service distinction was bolstered by guaranteeing pick up within 60 minutes, at any time of day in the New York area. AGS' dedication to flexibility, customization to meet customers' needs and continuance of the highest quality service standards have been major factors in the company's success. Throughout the years, AGS expanded its geographic network and service offerings to cover every zip code in the U.S.
Today, at 60, AGS promotes full logistics services; expedited international and domestic services, brokerage, part stock inventory and same day delivery. AGS now offers more domestic niche services such as white glove, room of choice and threshold to its commercial and residential customers. These services are popular with technology customers, retailers and ecommerce. Supporting its expedited shipping network, AGS tradeshow services are managed by a 24/7/365 tradeshow call center to service after-hour pick up requirements and time specific deliveries of critical show and event material. In fact, AGS maintains 7 micro call centers specializing in sectors and services to support its growing customer base - all the while maintaining localized and dedicated customer service teams in each market. AGS' state-of-the-art technology serves to support fast-growth clients through the use of MyAGS.com. AGS is leading innovation to position itself as a global leader.
AGS attributes its key to success over the past 60 years to its management teams, employees, vast service network of warehouses and delivery trucks, along with the ability to provide a menu of time-definite transportation services to every zip code in America and hundreds of cities overseas. This network, combined with customer centric technology and supply chain solutions, enables AGS to create and implement highly customized supply chain solutions for their customers.
In 2012, AGS was acquired by Nippon Express USA, but continues to operate as a wholly owned subsidiary. "What makes AGS stand out is a highly skilled management team along with our dedicated employees. Becoming a member of the Nippon Express Group Companies has strengthened our global network and enhances our future expansion and services," says AGS President, Dave Cadmus. "I am excited about our future growth and look forward to AGS continuing as an innovative industry leader."
AGS serves to support its exceptional customers and wishes to thank its dedicated team of logistics professionals who help drive the company's success and longevity.
