OIA Global, a Portland, Ore.-based logistics services provider, has opened a new office in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
"Consistent with last year's acquisition of Bellville Rodair International, OIA Global is continuing our growth strategy, allowing us to further build our infrastructure in one of the world's fastest growing markets,” said Charlie Hornecker, OIA’s chief executive officer, in a statement. “Launching a new Bellville Rodair International office in the robust Sao Paulo market better positions OIA to support existing customers and provide high-quality global, logistics, sourcing and packaging services.”
The Sao Paulo office represents the latest step in the company’s ongoing expansion in South America. OIA opened an office in Porto Alegre three years ago, which it says has handled more than 8,500 shipments to date.
OIA said its Brazilian offices will target the energy, automotive, fashion, healthcare and outdoor/athletic sectors.
