Mid AmST. LOUIS, MO. June 26, 2018. Mid America Logistics is opening its first International office in Guadalajara, Mexico and an operations office in Rogers, Arkansas.

The company has formed Mid America Freight Logistics Mexico for cross-border trade and operations are scheduled to begin the first week of September.

"Our clients continue to request transportation services to and from Mexico. It has always been a subject of ambiguity for shippers, but despite the political climate, demand in the US-Mexico market is strong," said Josh Cale, director of Operations. "International expansion has connotations of adding complexity to domestic-focused firms, however, our team spent several months surveying the market and planning a potential expansion - the business case is compelling," he added.

The US exported US$22.4 billion to Mexico in April 2018 according to the U.S. Census Bureau and imported US$28.08 billion. For the first four months of the year the figures were US$86.36 billion and US$110.27 billion respectively.

Mid America Logistics' truckload shipping volume has increased 162 percent on a rolling 12-month average, with corresponding revenue growth of 167 percent during the same period. Revenue is forecast to exceed US$140 million this year. Since expanding to new markets 14 months ago, over 60 percent of the firm's revenue originates and is processed outside its St. Louis headquarters.

The company offers FTL/LTL and technology services to the food production, retail, CPG, industrial and agricultural sectors.
