Our group was born as R.AHUMADA Consultores en Comercio Internacional in 1997 under the Customs Brokers license No.1455 granted to Ricardo Ahumada Guzman in Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico. Later, we were granted the authorization (No. 3663) to operate in different customs ports, and thereafter our offices in Monterrey and Nuevo Laredo started operations.
The growing demand lead us to expand our premises to the American- soil counterparts, opening the warehouses in Laredo and El Paso, Texas. Today, we proudly serve you in 9 different locations.
