Austrian forwarder Gebrüder Weiss has opened an air and sea freight office in Miami, Florida. The new location is close to the international airport and currently employs six, headed by Marcin Gonzalez.
Miami primarily handles imports from Asia for onward transport to South and Central America, as there are only a few direct routes from Asia.
Opening in Miami follows a move to a larger head office in Chicago and opening of another logistics warehouse. Gebrüder Weiss operates five warehouse locations in the US and employs 130 people in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, El Paso, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco as well as Miami.
Country manager Mark McCullough, said: “Miami is a central logistics hub for transports to and from Latin America, Europe, Asia and the Caribbean.”
