Tigers USA opens new purpose-built facility in Miami to meet growing e-commerce demand


Tigers USA opens new Florida facility with plans to strengthen focus on Latin American region and meet growing e-commerce demand worldwide

Hong Kong, Monday 25th February 2019 – Supply chain specialist Tigers USA has moved its Miami, USA 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 team will play a key role in further growing our eTigers product, providing end-to-end supply chain solutions for online customers around the world, as well as drive the launch of a new cross-border e-commerce service into Europe from Miami later this year.

“All of this is boosted by our unique forwarding and consolidation capabilities into Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as out of China.”

Varona has been responsible for the Miami branch since June 2017, and has been with Tigers for 20 years with a particular focus on the Central and South American market.

Tigers USA’s South Florida team was first established 30 years ago, and provides 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 (CFS) and an In-Bond Export Consolidation (IBEC) warehouse.

Tigers operates 16 offices in North America, including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Los Angeles, Riverside, Miami, New York, Newark, San Francisco, and Seattle, with further expansion expected in 2019.

The company recently grew its global sales team covering APAC, South Africa, Europe, and North America to meet a strong increase in customer demand and serve the booming e-commerce market.

Late in 2018, Tigers launched Cloud-based SmartHub:Connect, the world’s first combined freight, e-commerce, and logistics portal, which gives customers end-to-end visibility of the supply chain globally.

Carbon Footprint – We minimize our CO2 footprint by stretching efficiency to its ultimate limits across our services portfolio. For instance, our hybrid Ship+ product decreases the reliance on air-only shipments and can reduce carbon footprint by as much as 50%.

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
