We are very proud of our working relationship with Word Trade Distribution, Inc since 1990, and having an opportunity to represent and work very closely with Jeff Joachim, president and Melik Ebrahim, operations manager, in addition to many other excellent personal.

Word Trade Distribution is a large independent warehousing and transportation company based in Houston. Word Trade specializes in container freight handling and operates one of the largest freight stations on the Gulf Coast. In addition, the main World Trade facility includes one of the largest U.S. Customs exam site stations in the Gulf Coast region. World Trade also operates one of the largest independent fleets of trucks in this area, transporting containers to and from the Port of Houston’s container facility.

First Houston Properties worked with World Trade regarding its initial lease of the 1120 Lockwood facility in 1990, and its purchase of this facility in 1998.

HFP also represented World Trade in its recent 2007 sale of the 1120 and 1140 Lockwood facility, consisting of 149,00 SF of warehouse space on approximately 1 acres of land. At the same time as the Lockwood facility was being sold =FHP also provided consulting and developmental services to World Trade regarding its acquisition of the former SAIA Truck Terminal facility at 2222 N. Wayside, a fully-paved and fenced 17 acre site north of I-10 and south of Wallisville. As of November 2007. World Trade began its relocation to this facility, which now consist of over 120,000 SF of improvements – including the newly constructed 59,000SF freight facility.

We congratulate Work Trade in the acquisition of its new Wayside facility, as World Trade expands its operations and even further enhances its excellent capabilities and services.
