Global logistics provider Janel World Trade Ltd has opened offices in Honduras and Guatemala to help garment and textile firms sourcing under the DR-CAFTA free trade agreement. 

The new offices are located in San Pedro Sula, Honduras and Guatemala City, Guatemala.

"During the past three years, our Los Angeles office has been aggressively driving our expansion in the Central American region," said CEO James N Jannello.

"We have now reached a level of market penetration that justifies our decision to brand the Janel Group in Guatemala and Honduras.

He adds that the company is also very close to a similar deal in El Salvador.

Janel World Trade offers an integrated programme that includes customs clearance, expertise on the DR-CAFTA free trade agreement for American importers, freight services and electronic solutions to supply chain management.
