1 Trade Logistics has relocated to a 25,000 SF facility at 1215 Metropalce Dr., Suite 400, DFW Airport, TX 75261 – expanding warehousing capabilities to accommodate their expanding truck fleet and customer supply chain needs.
“Our new facility is inside DFW Airport, which is a major transportation hub in the center of the United States,” said Andres Gamboa, CFO. “We can promptly ship to domestic and international destinations.”
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.
“Our team of drivers is amazing. They always go the extra mile and it’s exciting to give them a new tool like the Peterbilt 579 to get the job done even better,” said Oscar Smith, Fleet Manager.

In addition to the upgraded truck fleet, 1 Trade has also expanded its office staff to better handle their growing client base, while simultaneously creating the extra bandwidth needed to grow. The warehouse has a newly implemented and fully automated inventory management system to expand capabilities for client needs.
“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,” said Sol Arango, Co-Founder and President.
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 its why we keep growing. We’re truly blessed.”
