BAX Global continues to show its belief in the growth of central and eastern Europe as an important business center. The Irvine, Calif.-based logistics provider this month began operations of BAX Global spol. s r.o. in Prague, Czech Republic. "Our new Prague office marks the third new BAX affiliate operation to open in the region in the last two years, reflecting the growth of central Europe," says Kevin Mellor, president, BAX Global Europe, Middle East and Africa. "This is a very promising market, and it is important for BAX to have an operation based in this dynamic capital." Other BAX offices are located in Austria and Hungary. BAX Global offers mode-neutral logistics management for business-to-business shippers via 500 offices in 123 countries.
