Wood Dale, IL — April 27, 2023— Gebrüder Weiss, an international transport and logistics company, has announced the opening of a new location in Miami, Florida. The office is part of Gebrüder Weiss USA’s ongoing nationwide expansion, which includes strategic positioning across the country to support high-volume shipping routes and serve customers’ evolving needs. The company identified Miami as a key staging center for its broad international client base.
“As we grow both domestically and globally, Miami is a critical location for our Latin American and Central American customers, and the new office enhances our ability to serve these important markets,” said Mark McCullough, CEO of Gebrüder Weiss USA. “Miami also serves as a consolidation gateway for cargo out of Asia as there are few direct routes from the Far East to Latin America.”
The office is located at 6303 Blue Lagoon Drive in Miami and will be managed by Marcin Gonzalez, a Gebrüder Weiss USA branch manager with deep knowledge of freight forwarding and Latin/Central American markets. Five additional employees are based in Miami, and the company has plans to continue area-specific growth.
In late 2022, Gebrüder Weiss relocated its USA headquarters from Des Plaines to Wood Dale, Illinois, to obtain additional office space and a 45,000 square-foot warehouse. The company continued its growth with an additional 106,000 square foot warehouse in Elgin, Illinois. The family-owned company prides itself on anticipating customer needs and industry demands and responding quickly with customized transport and logistics solutions.
