Alexander International Logistics has opened a new office and warehouse in Miami, Florida, USA to serve the region's vibrant import and export sector.
The facility includes a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ), as well as a Container Freight Station, Bonded Warehouse, and an In-Bond Export Consolidator (IBEC) Warehouse.
"Miami is an important international gateway located strategically at the crossroads of the Americas, with a booming trade industry and a world-class transport network," said Tinamarie Newman, Chief Operating Officer (COO), Mallory Alexander International Logistics.
"Our new facility will be able to store and handle cargo to and from South America, Central America, and the Caribbean, as well as globally for importing and exporting.
"Our Foreign Trade Zone designation is designed to lower the costs of import duties and provide tax relief to the benefit of our customers."
The new site will be used to handle all facets of general cargo supply chains, with a particular focus on electronics, wearing apparel, consolidated freight all kind (FAK), and liquor products.
The Miami team are bilingual in English and Spanish and offer a range of logistics services including Customs consultation and clearance, automated importer pre-filing, quota entries, and various Free Trade Agreements proficiency.
The location will be managed by father-and-son team Alberto Marino Jr. and Alberto Marino Sr., who between them have over 80 years' experience in the logistics industry.
Both are licensed Customs brokers, and Marino Sr. was Founder and former Chief Executive Officer of freight forwarder Interport Logistics.
