ICAT Logistics Expands their Agency Partner Program with New Partnership in Miami

Addition of new ICAT Miami office reinforces ICAT’s position for continued growth and expansion into the international marketplace in 2013

Elkridge, MD- January 30, 2013- ICAT Logistics, Inc. (ICAT), a leading agency-based freight forwarder in the U.S., announces today the expansion of their Agency Partner Program with the signing of Enterworld Trading LLC, now known as, ICAT Miami based in Miami, Florida. This latest ICAT Agency Partner addition assists the company with growing their Agency Partner Program and deepens their international footprint specifically in Latin American countries.

ICAT is projecting the global product to be the fastest growing product line in 2013 and that the ICAT Miami office’s targeted focus on Latin American trade will be instrumental to their growth. The ICAT Miami office will serve as the gateway to South America, Central America and the Caribbean due to its ideal location and easy access for air and ocean freight, which can accommodate all vertical industries. Latin America has changed itself into one of the faster growing, emerging economies and statistics have shown that commodity export has constantly risen in the past years and will continue to do so in the coming years.

“My dream has always been to join a company where I can share my vision in this industry and when I met Rick Campbell and the executives of ICAT, I realized they, too, shared the same vision to grow the market in Latin America,” said Jaime Cabrera, ICAT Miami Owner. “As a new ICAT Agency Partner Owner, I will fully support the ICAT system that upholds a strong commitment to customer service and strives to exceed customer expectations in our growth endeavors.”

ICAT Miami office owner, Jaime Cabrera, brings over 20 years of expertise and experience in international export air freight, ocean freight, customs brokerage and international business development. Before joining the ICAT team, Cabrera began his freight career in 1990 and has held various positions at various companies that had an international focus, including LAN Chile airlines and two major freight forwarders. Prior to Cabrera joining ICAT, he played a major role in building a gateway into Latin America and he hosted the first Latin America (LATAM) conference that brought together over 15 different top LATAM countries including Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Chile, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela. Cabrera’s extensive experience in increasing overall profits in these regions make him uniquely qualified for this role, and a true asset to the ICAT team.

"We are very excited for Jaime Cabrera and his group to join ICAT Logistics,” said ICAT Director of International Business Development, Keith Buford. “Over the next five years we expect Latin America to lead all countries in year-over-year growth and our new ICAT Miami office and their expertise positions ICAT perfectly for that future.”
