Amber Worldwide Logistics was incorporated in 1990. The owners, Elaine Rosendorf and Keith Milliner already had almost 40 years of joint experience in the cargo business working for the world’s largest freight companies. Their vision was to provide the worldwide operations and expertise held by the leading entities combined with the exceptional service and close relationships of the family owned “mom and pop” businesses. Amber would offer the best of both in an extremely forward thinking, flexible, technologically superior package utilizing our trademark “Personal Service Today with Tomorrow’s Technology”. Since we did not have outdated, cumbersome legacy systems, we would utilize PC’s and new software to outdistance everyone. Today, we are in the forefront of the coming paperless environment
From the outset, Amber Worldwide was widely accepted and quickly grew into a fast moving profitable enterprise and was able to capitalize on the extraordinary collapse of the Soviet Union. Amber Worldwide handled thousands of air and ocean shipments and even set up a subsidiary to move cargo to Moscow via air and ocean to the United Kingdom and then to Moscow by truck. As similar situations evolved and growth opportunities presented themselves, we leveraged them to expand our group and have had offices in the U.K., Mexico, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Peru and Turkey as well as Agents in over 90 countries all of whom are similar in size, structure and vision to ourselves. We currently have our headquarters in New York with partnered offices in Miami and Istanbul, Turkey supported by those same long term worldwide partners.
During this turbulent, wildly changing quarter century, our Company has continued to hold true to the initial tenets and maintained personal values of trust, honesty, loyalty and “going the extra mile” for clients, staff, agents, affiliates and vendors. We have acquired almost another twenty five years knowledge and experience handling hundreds of thousands of shipments and yet, we still have our very first client. Amber Worldwide is recognized throughout the world but especially as one of New York’s top 25 Woman Owned Companies, certified as a Minority WBE by New York State.
Complimenting our regular inbound and outbound general cargo by air and ocean throughout the world, Amber Worldwide staff moves goods by barge, road, rail, air and ship charters.
