Radiant Logistics opens Distribution by Air station in Houston

August 26 US-based logistics services company Radiant Logistics has announced the further expansion of its Distribution By Air (DBA) network with a new station in Houston, USA.

Radiant Logistics says that the Houston facility will leverage its robust technology platform and global network to provide a comprehensive level of domestic and international freight forwarding and logistics services, headed by Liz Figueroa and Gerald Lopez.

Additionally, the DBA-Houston station provides specialised services commonly needed to support the large number of energy industry suppliers prevalent to the Houston area, like ISPM-approved crating services both on-site and on-location.

"Working with Radiant and DBA, we now have the support and tools needed to provide world-class service and support for our expanding customer base to outperform the competition," claims Figueroa, director of sales for Distribution By Air-Houston. "We look forward to long-term growth and sustainable success as a member of the Radiant Logistics family here in Houston." 

As a member of the Radiant Logistics family of companies, the DBA-Houston station joins the ever-expanding Radiant network of over 100 company-owned and exclusive agent offices across North America servicing a diversified account base that includes manufacturers, distributors and government agencies, using a network of independent carriers and international agents around the world.

"Growing our U.S. network through the addition of the Houston station and industry veterans like Liz and Gerald will have an immediate and positive impact on our organization going forward," said Bohn Crain, Founder and CEO of Radiant Logistics. "Their in-depth knowledge of the Houston market and specialised needs of the local customer base in combination with the resources of the Radiant/DBA Network makes for a powerful partnership."
