Walker SCM, LLC, a minority-certified global transportation and logistics firm celebrating 25 years of service, announces the opening of its new office in Miami, Florida. This state-of-the-art operations and warehousing space, which is conveniently located near Miami airport and area seaports, will cater to air and ocean freight customers while providing a full complement of value-added logistics services.
“Miami, of course, is world famous as a gateway to the Latin American market,” noted Giorgio Laccona, COO for Walker International Transportation. “While Walker Miami will certainly serve this market, we will also offer full-service support to trade anywhere in the world. In addition to traditional cargo, our team is certified in handling hazardous goods and has strong experience with project shipments.
“This office opening represents the first step in Walker’s expansion plans for 2014,” Mr. Laccona added. “Later this year, we intend to expand into the Chicago and Los Angeles markets, as well as into the Netherlands.”
