Online PR News – 18-September-2018 – FENTON, Mo. – Mid America Logistics, one of the fastest growing technology-enabled logistics companies in North America, has recently opened its first international expansion into Guadalajara, Mexico, which began operations earlier this month.
Named Mid America Freight Logistics Mexico, Inc., this wholly owned Mexican subsidiary of the trucking and logistics company serves as its base of cross-border operations, includes Spanish-speaking customer service, and acts as an overflow center for back-office operations.
"We are excited to extend our transportation services to and beyond the Mexican border and are eager to continue diversifying our offerings and footprint," said Mark Kummer, CEO of Mid America Logistics.
