Global supply chain solutions provider Seko has opened an expanded office in Miami designed to enhance its international trade business to Central and South America. The 3,500 square ft. facility will represent a key transshipment point for business in South America, where Seko has opened offices in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, and Costa Rica, the company said.
The facility provides air and ocean freight services for imports and exports and Seko has also developed a new integrated software program providing total visibility of freight after arrival at the Miami gateway warehouse facility, scanning and documents all data of how and when shipments arrive.
"Import/export trade activity has been expanding rapidly in the South American marketplace," said William Wascher, Seko's president & CEO. "Customer demand for supply chain services in this trade zone has increased dramatically in the past two years, and Miami is a natural gateway to that market and beyond. Seko has long handled a wide variety of domestic and import/export freight from its existing office in Miami. With the addition of the new gateway operation, however, we are now able to vastly expand our access into major new South American markets such as pharmaceutical, Med-Tec, food and beverage and electronics, while streamlining our international freight forwarding business in general. This new facility greatly enhances our ability to serve these vital trade lanes."
