Tampa, Florida : Cigar City Humidors hails Senate passage of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which will replace the 25-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
“With thanks to the bi-partisan agreement that resulted in the passage of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, Cigar City Humidors is now well positioned to increase trade both to and from Mexico. 2020 will mark the increase of our physical assets and people employed in the United States and well prepared to increase our sourcing and supply relationships with a critical supply partner located in Vera Cruz, Mexico” said David Happe, managing member of Cigar City Humidors. “We’ll be adding warehouse space, customer service and sales personnel, and logistics resources to help our planned expansion due in part to the USMCA agreement. There will be more benefits beyond our walls, including operations and delivery partners, marketing and technical support which we outsource within the United States, fulfillment service increases and a bunch of people who will make more money as we increase our business within the United States due to more favorable trade terms with Mexico. We will also be studying the best way to work within the new trade agreement with Canada to expand our distribution to all Canadian provinces, probably with Walmart and Amazon as our market distribution retail partners for Canada.”
Cigar City Humidors follows Walmart’s strict labor compliance standards for factories it works with, and the interagency committee that will monitor Mexico’s labor reform implementation and compliance with labor obligations included in the passage of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement will require competitors to not cut corners and level the playing field by increasing scrutiny on working conditions for all aspects of the North American supply chain.
Cigar City Humidors has proactively taken steps in advance of the passage of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement to get new distribution licenses in place to take advantage of the anticipated surge in cross border trade. They recently announced they had been granted a wholesale distribution license by the State of Florida for certain categories of products will benefit from loosening trade provided under the USMCA.
