Wind energy powers Kaleido

Spain’s Kaleido Logistics has opened an office in Buenos Aires, Argentina, expanding the company’s presence in the Americas. 

Kaleido has already been involved in wind energy projects in the region, transporting wind turbine components and additional machinery from Spain and China to different ports in Argentina. 

Commercial director, Xosé Martinez, explained: “In the latest wind energy projects, the business was generated in Spain, but most of the cargo was moved from China to Argentina. 

“In Argentina, we have been handling different logistics projects for many years, which is why we decided to settle in Buenos Aires with our own office and a committed local team.”

According to Kaleido, which also has offices in Mexico and Brazil, other contracts awarded suggest that 2018 will be a good year for the new Argentinian branch.
