Expansion in Miami for B&H and Tigers
25 / 02 / 2019
Tigers' new Miami facility
Logistics firms B&H Worldwide and Tigers USA have both moved to larger facilities in Miami to meet demand growth.
Aerospace logistics provider B&H Worldwide said that increased, ongoing customer demand and expectations of business growth in the US had led it to move to a new location that offers three times as much warehouse space as its current facility.
The new facility features climate controlled and non-climate controlled areas to cater for the specialist aerospace shipments the company handles. In addition to more overall space, the new Miami site also means larger structural parts can now be held within the building alongside long and short-term storage items requiring climate-controlled facilities.
“Miami is not only one of the largest MRO markets in the US but also the world and one of the fastest growing,” said B&H Worldwide Group chief executive Stuart Allen. “In addition, it represents one of the most connected gateways with its multiple flight connections and is thus the ideal location to have an expanded operation in order to cater for ongoing customer demand. The new operation’s close proximity to the airport cargo area will enable us to meet both existing and new customers’ needs.”
Meanwhile, Tigers USA has moved its Miami team into a new, larger facility to strengthen its focus on the Latin American region as well as meet growing global e-commerce demands.
The new purpose-built facility, which will be led by branch manager Elena Varona, measures 34,115 sq ft, and includes a new office as well as a warehouse with nearly double the storage capacity of the previous Miami location.
“This new larger facility in South Florida will allow Tigers to grow our focus on the Latin American region as well as expand our capabilities to service the growing e-commerce market,” said Varona.
The Miami team provide outbound logistics services to Latin America and the Caribbean, and inbound logistics services to the Asia Pacific region.
This includes weekly direct consolidation services into Miami from Hong Kong and Taiwan, as well as from Shanghai, Ningbo, and Shenzhen in China.
The new Miami location includes a 3,035 sq ft office and a 31,080 sq ft warehouse, with state-of-the-art features to support growth in e-commerce and contract logistics.
The facility is bonded and serves as a Container Freight Station and an In-Bond Export Consolidation warehouse.
