Charleston, SC (August 12, 2015) – Vanguard Logistics Services is pleased to announce their expansion with the opening of a branch office in Charleston, South Carolina on April 6, 2015. The location provides coverage and support for their growing client base in the region.


“The Port of Charleston is now among the top five fastest growing U.S. ports for imports, and our presence there is important to give customers the service level and local knowledge that they look for in a Neutral NVOCC.  We continue to expand on our offerings of direct import LCL services into the South Atlantic from European, Mediterranean and Asia origins.” commented Salvador Camaraza – Southeast Regional Vice President.

Angela Gaskins, Branch Manager in Charlotte, NC, will also manage the Charleston office. "Gaskins' extensive operational and management experience, coupled with her sales skills, will benefit our present and future customers," noted Camaraza.

“The Southeast is a strategic growth area for us and Charleston is critical to our growth strategy.  We’re already well positioned in the region with offices in Miami, Atlanta, and Charlotte, so the addition of our Charleston office gets us in another key market and closer to our customers in that area,” commented Mike Meierkort – Regional Managing Director – North America.

The new Charleston office is in full operation and located at 3074 Ashley Phosphate Road, North Charleston, SC, 29418-8404. Contact the office by telephone at (843) 760-4191, or email
