Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 08, 2013
After 16 successful years in local and regional logistics/trucking business, Chicago-based MidAmerica Enterprises Inc. announces that it is expanding its local presence by offering warehousing, fulfillment, and other distribution services.
“Considering the expertise, connections and friendships we have acquired during more than a decade in this challenging and demanding business, it’s a logical next step”, says Mindaugas Zamalaitis, Owner and President of MidAmerica Enterprises.
“The beginning of a new year is a great opportunity to thank our existing clients for their business and support and let them know that we’re branching into the areas of warehousing, transloading, and cross-docking with a special focus on international import/export,” says Mr. Zamalaitis.
The official announcement comes after a year of actively testing the waters. By the end of 2012, the company was operating 10 local and 20 over-the-road trucks and transloading 1.5 million pounds of packaged goods per month. A great part of the cargo currently transloaded and cross-docked by the company are shipments of meat products from plants in the Midwest and beyond.
Usually this type of freight spends a few days in the warehouse of MidAmerica Enterprises; after being re-palletized, if necessary, the cargo is delivered to the BNSF loading dock as per client’s directions and leaves to California on rail until it reaches major Asian ports via cargo ships.
In 2013, MidAmerica Enterprises is looking to triple its current transloading capacity by growing organically and acquiring new accounts. The company is closely monitoring import/export trends between the United States and Asian countries and predicts a sustainable growth, mainly in China, fueled by the further expansion of its middle-class.
Among its strengths the company cites its experience, flexibility, customer-centric approach, competitive pricing, and prime warehouse location. The main warehouse is located only five minutes away from the BNSF railway dock (between W. Ogden Ave. and S. Central Ave. in Chicago).
Being a smaller company in the market dominated by big players has its advantages. MidAmerica Enterprises is known for its flexibility, creative out-of-the-box solutions and attention to every detail.
