WTDC, a Foreign Trade Zone and Logistics company in Miami, FL, is celebrating its 40th anniversary of business with the promotion of Sean P. Gazitua as President & CEO. Founded by the Gazitua family on March 8, 1977, the company began as a U.S. Customs General Order Warehouse. A General Order warehouse stores cargo that has been seized by U.S. Customs and helps alleviate congestion at seaports and airports. WTDC has now evolved into a full-service Foreign Trade Zone and Logistics Company, specializing in inventory management.
“WTDC’s future is focused on building a company that unites technology and best practices with the values we share as a family. We’ve come a long way since our founding 40 years ago but still maintain our commitment to service and our employees as a family-owned company,” said Sean P. Gazitua, WTDC President & CEO.
Mr. Gazitua developed an extensive grasp of Foreign Trade Zone Operations and Logistics Management working his way through the ranks at WTDC as an Operations Manager, Director of Logistics, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, and most recently as Vice President. He was integral in building WTDC’s client base of manufacturers and consolidators. The company
specializes in managing inventory in its Foreign Trade Zone, a cost-saving measure for its customers. “This year we look forward to growing our existing accounts and further developing our transportation department with air and ocean freight forwarding. We are unique in the local market in that WTDC maintains rigorous- corporate standards of accountability while having the flexibility as a family-owned company to customize our operations for our customers.”
Sean P. Gazitua succeeds his father, WTDC Chairman Ralph L. Gazitua, as well as his uncle John Gazitua and grandfather Luis Rafael Gazitua, as the third generation of Gazitua to manage the company. “It’s an honor to continue the Gazitua family tradition of excellence in logistics. My grandparents, father, and uncle are all included on the monument near PortMiami as ‘Pioneers in International Trade and Transportation Industry.’ We build upon that legacy each day at WTDC by providing excellent customer service and attention to detail for our customers.”
