Synergex has expanded its services to Latin America, with the acquisition of freight-forwarding licenses for Mexico and Colombia. In the latter country, it is operating out of the Bogota Free Trade Zone, which offers companies a single 15-percent income tax rate and the ability to sell in the local market without value-added taxes and customs duties. Synergex said it is focusing its third-party logistics services in the north-south trade lanes within the Americas, by extending its network from Toronto and Montreal to include Latin American freight forwarding, domestic distribution stations and related information-technology support.

It is headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario.
