a leading provider of transportation management services and logistics
technology, today announced that Celtic International has expanded its
cross-border and intra-Mexico intermodal capabilities. The expansion
provides Transplace and Celtic with a more comprehensive U.S.-Mexico
service offering, and will allow their customers to better utilize
intermodal services in and out of Mexico.
“With an already established presence in Mexico and a strong intermodal
platform, this expansion provides Transplace and Celtic customers with a
more complete offering, giving them greater access to equipment capacity
and enabling them to take advantage of the benefits of intermodal
transportation and better optimize transportation spend,” said Ben
Enriquez, country director for Transplace and Celtic in Mexico. “As a
result of our continued investment, we have an experienced team and the
necessary infrastructure in place on both sides of the border to provide
an integrated and strategic solution for companies looking to optimize
freight and utilize intermodal transportation.”
The expanded intermodal capabilities are a natural extension of
Transplace’s strong service offerings in Mexico, which include bilingual
customer service and a Transportation Management System (TMS) with
capabilities tailored for the Mexican market. In 2011, Transplace Mexico
became a licensed U.S. Customs Broker, enabling the company to be a
single-source provider for its customers moving freight cross-border. As
part of its recent investment, Transplace has expanded its customer
service center in Monterrey, Jalisco Mexico to further support the
efficient movement of shipments across the U.S.-Mexico border.
This investment better positions Transplace and Celtic to capitalize on
the growing use of intermodal, which grew by 4.6 percent domestically in
2013 over the previous year.1 Even with the steady increase
year-over-year, there is still tremendous room for growth. In a recent
report, Raymond James and Associates referred to Mexico as the “final
frontier” for the North American intermodal market, stating, “Intermodal
over the U.S./Mexico border remains in its infancy with market share in
the low single digit rates.”
The diversified financial services holding company attributes the slow
development to lack of infrastructure. However, with recent investments
from two key railroads in Mexico, they believe there could be
accelerated growth in the Mexican market, stating “We believe the
simplicity and economics of intermodal will drive tremendous modal
conversion over time.”2
“The use of intermodal transportation continues to grow across North
America, but there are few companies that have an intermodal marketing
company presence across all three North American countries,” said Steven
Golich, president, Celtic International. “With access to over 60,000
pieces of rail equipment and extensive experience working in Mexico, we
provide our customers with the intermodal capabilities, industry
expertise and capacity to build and execute an effective transportation
strategy across multiple modes.”

Many of the well-known examples of DevOps success we read in blogs on the Internet paint an idyllic picture of DevOps productivity. A team was facing a stodgy, slow-moving operations department, teams weren’t delivering software on time. Those teams moved to DevOps, became proactive about infrastructure and deployment automation, and an overnight transition to productivity ensues. People are promoted, projects are successful, and developers and system administrators dance hand-in-hand in a final...
