theHUB in Miami
Miami boasts easy access to every market in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. It has rich cultural ties to those regions, a complete banking industry that supports International businesses and a strong transportation infrastructure with intermodal connections that are constantly growing, therefore Miami has a geographic advantage that translates into vast volumes of international trade.
Miami, has long been a major consolidation point for air and sea freight shipments to Latin America. The city has evolved from a simple staging area for goods into a major logistics hub for omni-channel distribution to customers and manufacturing sites in the region. Companies are increasing focus on Latin America, as it is one of the few world markets with high growth potential.
Latin America can be a logistics challenge with a fragmented market of service providers. Many U.S.-based multinationals, particularly high-tech firms, have avoided placing logistics assets in the region because of political, economic and infrastructure challenges. Many have chosen to service Latin American customers with regular shipments from Miami – the only hub that connects all points in the region. Buyers of goods, recognizing these same logistics challenges, use INCOTERMS that includes all logistics costs to deliver to their door. Such terms require a coordinated and integrated logistics solution.
