New Laredo, Texas Office Joins AIT Worldwide Logistics' Global Network
ITASCA, ILLINOIS (June 9, 2016) – A new office in Laredo, Texas has opened its doors today as the latest addition to AIT Worldwide Logistics’ global network. Overseeing AIT-Laredo are AIT-McAllen Branch Managers Ruben Garza and Raul Rendon who have 32 years of combined supply chain management experience.
The station is housed in a C-TPAT certified building with access to 120,000 square feet of warehouse space, 34 dock doors and a yard that can securely accommodate as many as 75 trailers. Other benefits including reliable operating systems and advanced safety features add up to make the facility an excellent choice for the new office.
While AIT-Laredo will offer a complete range of supply chain services, their location near the U.S./Mexican border makes the office ideally situated to provide in-house U.S. and Mexican Customs brokerage and maquiladora import services.
“We are very excited about opening this office,” said Garza. “Our company culture, competitive rates and emphasis on putting the customer first means we are in an excellent position to gain market share in the region.”
Ray Fennelly, Executive Vice President at AIT, said, “Laredo is a strategic gateway for North American transportation with more than two million trucks crossing the U.S./Mexican border in this locale every year. I am very pleased with the enhancement in the services and capabilities we are delivering to our customers with AIT’s expansion in this market.”
AIT-Laredo is the 51st office of the company's global network:
