LAREDO - Exel — a wholly owned subsidiary of logistics company Deutsche Post DHL — opened its new 250,000-sf distribution center on October 12 to support cross-border trade between the United States and Mexico. The $10.4 million facility is located at 7802 W. Bob Bullock Loop.

The company hired nearly 100 people to provide international supply-chain management services for the technology, automotive, engineering and manufacturing industries.

The new site, which averages 3,600 outbound loads per month, offers comprehensive managed transportation services, cross-docking, U.S. and Mexico customs brokerage, Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI), and value-added services such as classification.

The facility includes sustainability design elements such as energy efficient lighting, sky lights, low-flow plumbing, a white roof system, storm water runoff containment, and a recycling program. The company has applied for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for the site.
