OVERLAND PARK, Kan., February 9, 2016 – MIQ Logistics is pleased to announce the opening of a global logistics facility in Kansas City, located at 11501 Outlook St, Overland Park, KS. The new branch will work closely with the company’s offices globally and well-established Chicago logistics center to deliver more personalized attention to customers in Kansas, Missouri and surrounding states.
The company also announces the appointment of Aaron Louchart as the Kansas City Global Logistics branch manager. Louchart joined the company in 2006 as a member of the corporate marketing and solution design teams. Since then, he worked as an international-supply-chain account manager on many of the company’s multi-million-dollar, international-shipping accounts. These are accounts that require large-scale, complex-logistics solutions.
The new global logistics center is the latest example of the company’s investment in the Kansas City market, and reflects the sales and operational growth it is experiencing there. The Kansas City area already is home to the MIQ Logistics global headquarters and domestic transportation load control center.
“The timing is perfect for us to open a global logistics branch in Kansas City,” says John Carr, president and chief executive officer. “With its geographically-central location and cost-effective transportation, the area is capitalizing on the movement to look at total-landed costs when making supply-chain decisions. The region continues to grow as a logistics hub, and MIQ Logistics is in a unique position to help customers there.”
