MIQ Logistics has opened a Global Service Center in the New Orelans area targeted at the shipbuilding, aerospace and mining industries.
The facility will also be able to handle the specific needs of the government, according to a company press release.
The center, which officials say is in an area that lacks sufficient access to logistics firms, is located equidistant from the New Orleans airport and seaport. Officials at the facility will handle import and export, customs brokerage, distribution and consolidation, purchase order management, and warehousing.
“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,” MIQ Logistics' Michael Collins said in a statement. “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.” - Jon Ross
