Commodity Integrated Logistics (Ci Logistics) has found a new home in Alamo! The company has acquired 26 acres of industrial land along with a 97,000+ sq. ft. warehouse to hold thousands of bales of cotton. For over 25 years, Ci Logistics has been operating in the Rio Grande Valley, purchasing cotton from across Texas and various cotton belt areas, including Corpus Christi, Houston, Lubbock, Memphis, Georgia and even California.
After purchasing cotton, Ci Logistics then exports it to cotton mills across Mexico. Their new location on the corner of Business 83 and Tower Road marks an exciting new milestone as the company has expanded into 1.1 million sq. ft. of warehouse space in Mission, McAllen, Weslaco, Raymondville and now Alamo.
Making a Positive Impact
What was once home to Atlantic Plastics is now a warehouse used by Ci Logistics. Purchasing and renovation represent over $2 million of private investment in this facility. Alamo EDC president Alonzo Garza told the Rio Grande Guardian, “This building has been empty for a long, long time. We are excited to have CiL come into town. I think everything is going to be great for every party involved.”
With the company’s 20+ acres of land in Alamo, talks of creating an industrial park are already in play. President Joaquin Spamer spoke to the Rio Grande Guardian, saying, ”There is a lot of potential for this property. We currently have 80,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space and 20,000 sq. ft. of office space. It is not a big warehouse, but it is big enough for cotton-handling. We have plans to increase the square footage to 160,000 sq. ft. in the next few months.”
