Rhenus logistics has opened a new warehouse facility in Miami, Florida that will serve as the regional headquarters for North and South America. The new 16,000 sq m facility will be designated as a foreign trade zone, providing vertical solutions for consumer electronics, industrial telecommunications, high-technology, high fashion and retail.
“Our regional headquarters for the Americas will serve both the North and South American continents,” said Jörn Schmersahl, CEO of Rhenus Air & Ocean Americas. “Its location is strategically convenient for our services to expand in the Americas and will create links to other regions such as Europe and Asia. Miami is the gateway to Latin America – our roots here will help us strengthen our global presence within the region and across new verticals.”
The new warehouse regional headquarters is located across from the Miami International Airport and ten miles from the Port of Miami. It will be functioning as an IATA-accredited air forwarder, licensed Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC), Customs Bonded Warehouse, Certified Cargo Screening Facility and Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ). The facility also includes an innovative proprietary IT platform and warehouse management system (WMS), 24-hour security, 59 dock doors and one ramp.
