C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. identifies Corpus Christi as prime expansion area

C.H. Robinson Worldwide, one of the world’s largest third party logistics (3PL) providers of transportation and supply chain services, has expanded its operations into Corpus Christi, Texas.

Eric Marshall, manager of C.H. Robinson ’ Corpus Christi, said, ‘We offer strong and competitive transportation solutions for our customers through our global network and can handle anything from small shipments to complete transportation outsource packages. With the knowledge of our people, our technology, our logistics expertise and our flexible business model, we create effective ways to improve service metrics and reduce overall supply-chain spend.’

With the opening of the Corpus Christi office, C.H. Robinson now has an office in each port city in the United States. The C.H. Robinson- Corpus Christi office provides transportation services to companies with freight needs and will focus on providing supply-chain and transportation solutions ranging from truckload, less than truckload, rail, refrigerated transportation, and complete transportation outsourcing.

Marshall said, ‘C.H. Robinson has a proven track record of financial strength and stability. We earn and value the loyalty of our contracted carriers and shippers, and we work hard to support their success. This region has shown a steady economic growth and I look forward to working with the local business community. Corpus Christi is a great area with amazing beaches, attractions, and recreational opportunities. I am very excited to be a part of the growing community and to be able to utilize the talent from Texas A & M for hiring and internship opportunities.’

Prior to opening the Corpus Christi office, Marshall gained sales experience at C.H. Robinson’s Detroit office and has been with C.H. Robinson for 13 years. Marshall is joined by Glenn Harkin, who has over seven years of industry knowledge.
