Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) February 21, 2013
To serve international freight forwarding (http://www2.miq.com/cms/site/international_freight_forwarding/index.html) needs in the growing Gulf South region of the United States, MIQ Logistics opened a new Global Service Center in the greater New Orleans, La., area. The center has capabilities to address the distinctive needs of the U.S. government, as well as shipbuilding, aerospace and mining industries.
“In recent years, New Orleans has been underserved by logistics providers, hampering the competitive environment for businesses who rely on this increasingly important transportation hub,” says Michael Collins, senior vice president Global Operations-MIQ Logistics. “Our investment in the region brings much needed resources and the expertise of logistics professionals who understand the business climate and the unique needs of the area.”
The new MIQ Logistics center is strategically positioned mid-distance between the international airport and the Port of New Orleans. This allows personnel to effectively support both ocean and air forwarding needs. The center is located in the Lakeway Business Center at 3900 North Causeway Boulevard in New Orleans, La.
The MIQ Logistics Global Service Center in New Orleans specializes in import and export services. The center also supports customs brokerage, global trade management, warehousing services, consolidation and distribution activities, and purchase order management.
