CHICAGO, IL. (Feb. 12, 2015) — TMC, a division of C.H. Robinson specializing in supply chain optimization, has expanded its operations to São Paulo, Brazil. TMC’s newest Global Control Tower® location complements the Chicago-based division’s other worldwide hubs in Amsterdam, Mumbai, Shanghai, and Wroclaw.
The location of the São Paulo control tower is beneficial as many of TMC’s current and prospective customers are large multinational shippers that have a presence in South America and are looking to achieve global supply chain visibility and control.
