June 20 - Mallory Alexander International Logistics has opened a new office in Houston, Texas.

The office, which will be headed up by Brenda Goodrich, is the third branch that Mallory Alexander operates in Texas, with the other two located in Dallas and Laredo.

The Houston team will offer a range of services to general cargo supply chains, including Customs clearance, freight forwarding, warehousing and free trade zone operations.

"The Port of Houston is a prime location for US imports and exports. This new office presents the opportunity to expand our footprint near the fastest-growing Gulf port," said Neely Mallory III, president of Mallory Alexander.

"It also allows Mallory to re-enter a market that is expected to increase its imports and exports tonnage with the expansion of the Panama Canal."
