US trucking company, Werner Enterprises, opened a new office for its logistics subsidiary in Laredo, Texas, on 8 December.
Werner Logistics welcomed associates, customers, carriers, and state and local officials at the new office launch. US Representative, Henry Cuellar, presented a Congressional Certificate of Recognition to Werner Logistics in honour of the grand opening and joined President and CEO, Derek Leathers, for the official ribbon cutting ceremony.
“We are excited to have this opportunity to expand our vision for our Werner Logistics office and grow our talent pool,” said Werner Logistics Senior Vice President, Matt Parry. “This expansion to our premier facility also will continue to allow us to be the number one cross-border provider.”
Werner Logistics’ new office is located at 13365 Port Drive. The company said in a statement that it anticipates the office will create 50-100 new jobs within the next few years, supporting its intermodal, brokerage, freight management and global portfolio service offerings – operating in over 150 counties.
Earlier this year, Werner Logistics said it would launch its own final mile logistics solution in response to the booming e-commerce delivery market.
