CQR Dallas handles the shipment of 11 luxury vehicles for Boardwalk Ferrari in Plano

CQR Dallas was in charge of transporting the luxury vehicles to Hawaii for a club rally

1 Trade’s improved capabilities were recently noticed by Boardwalk Ferrari in Plano who asked 1 Trade to move 11 luxury vehicles to Hawaii for a club rally. Everything from the initial inland pick up, ocean transport, and delivery in Maui and back to Dallas was handled by 1 Trade, including full responsibility for the total value of the vehicles.

“We know it isn’t easy to move that many luxury vehicles without incident all the way to Hawaii and back,” said Julie Summers, Event Coordinator of Boardwalk Ferrari in Plano. “1 Trade made the process smooth and efficient with their professionalism and continued communication. We couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out.”

Juan Arango, Co-Founder and VP of Operations at 1 Trade Logistics, said it was a fun project to be part of. “It’s a lot of fun to move Ferraris to Hawaii – I’m not going to lie – it doesn’t get much better than that. But whether we’re moving Ferraris to Maui or nuts and bolts to São Paulo we take the same care to make sure our clients are happy. Customer service is our #1 top priority – it’s who we are and it’s why we keep growing.”

Three cheers for 1 Trade Logistics for their outstanding achievements!

CQR Dallas expands their capabilities and relocates to a 25,000 SF facility at Dallas/ Fort-Worth

Conqueror Dallas also upgrades their truck fleet and expands their office staff to better handle their growing client base

1 Trade Logistics relocates to a 25,000 SF facility at 1215 Metroplace Dr, Suite 400, DFW Airport, thereby expanding their warehousing capabilities substantially. The warehouse has a newly implemented and fully automated inventory management system to expand capabilities for client needs.The move to the new facility was largely prompted by their need to expand their warehousing capabilities so as to accommodate their expanding truck fleet as well as customer supply chain requirements. 1 Trade’s relocation to the larger facility coincides with an upgraded fleet of Peterbilt 579 Ultraloft trucks with electronic logging and tracking capabilities. The 579s improve reliability, fuel efficiency, and enhance driver productivity.

In the words of Andres Gamboa, CFO of 1 Trade Logistics, “Our new facility is inside DFW Airport, which is a major transportation hub in the center of the United States. Now we can promptly ship to domestic and international destinations.” Sol Arango, Co-Founder and President of CQR Dallas has commented that “It’s important – as a company – to keep growing, to keep providing improved opportunities for both our clients and our employees. The new facility brings new potential for warehousing, staff, and clients. We’re excited to continue to make it happen in bigger and better ways.”

Warmest congratulations to 1 Trade Logistics for all their successful achievements!
