Horizon Air Freight was founded in 1970 at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City. We keep the world’s fleets shipshape and on-schedule with marine logistics by air, land, and sea.
In today’s global economy, maritime transport moves more than 90% of the world’s trade. Naval fleets keep our oceans safe. The cruise industry and the fishing industry each generate hundreds of billions of dollars in annual economic impact. Cable ships connect the world with robust telecommunications networks. Offshore oil, gas, and wind platforms power nations. And research vessels help us better understand our seas and our planet.
Keeping the world’s fleets equipped and supplied is a massive global undertaking, dependent on an international network of suppliers, warehouses, ports, and agents. Fleet technical directors, procurement managers, purchasing agents, captains, and engineers work heroically to keep their ships safe and productive. And for 50 years, they have relied on Horizon to get their spares, supplies, and equipment where they need them, when they need them, no matter what it takes.
Today, we serve more than 3,000 ships worldwide. With our global network of agents and facilities, we consolidate, expedite, and deliver door to deck. We simplify procurement, save our customers money, and keep their fleets on schedule: safe, able, and sailing.
As the world grows ever more connected, the importance of our commercial fleets will only increase. So will the complexity of keeping those fleets supplied and running. But at Horizon, we thrive on this. You keep moving the world. We’ll be by your side, ready and able to help.
