ComReal en Cartagena Colombia

In May 2009, Ed Redlich took the opportunity while traveling through Cartagena, Colombia to tour and learn more about the Port. The Port of Cartagena is one of the deepest and safest ports in South America. It is 276 miles from the Panama Canal making it a convenient location to import/export goods. It is also located very near Rafael Nunez International Airport and is within the La Candelaria Industrial Free Trade area. See and

Cartagena also has Mamonal Industrial Park in the El Bosque Industrial area of about 400 acres. The majority of the products include palstics, oil, petrochemical, chemical substances, produce, foods, beverages, etc.

Cartagena is the lead city to the USA. The more trade, the better for bodegas en Miami. The city will benefit greatly should the Colombia Free Trade Agreement be executed by the US Congress. The Colombian people deserve trade liberalization and free trade agreements with the Americas and Caribbean. President Alvaro Uribe has done an incredible job with the economy and national security. Colombia is truly a strong ally and trade partner for the USA.

Viva Colombia!

My firm deals with many customers in the international trade business, importing and exporting. For those we do not know, we are sure to screen them as best we can before we do business. Some of my landlord clients demand this before they will execute lease agreements on their Miami warehouses. We are also asked to visit any prospective tenants current location to see their operation ensuring that is legitimate and active. Tenants are required to fill-out credit applications and are also screened via the US PATRIOT Act.

The space consists of 10,667 sq. ft. and is part of the Medley Commerce Center. The property is located at 9302 NW 101st Street, in the Medley industrial area.

Blue Trading has had unbelievable growth over the last 3 years and despite the downturn in the economy their company continues to thrive. Thanks to the efforts from Ed Redlich and Chris Spear of ComReal Miami, they now have a space that fits their needs.

Blue Trading contacted ComReal in February 2009 to seek their assistance in locating warehouse space in Miami-Dade County. ComReal prepared a site selection which included a variety of warehouses from Doral to Medley. After viewing several properties, Blue Trading chose the Medley Commerce Center because of the amount of space the ComReal team was able to obtain for them and at a great rate.
