Branch offices are located in Houston, Texas; Hoboken, New Jersey; Manhattan Beach, California; and São Paulo, Brazil.

History[edit]

Magaya Corporation was founded in 2001 by Jesus David Rodriguez, Gabriel T. Ruz, José Yoniel García, and William Sierra, according to company president Jesus David Rodriguez.

The first software product was originally called the Magaya Cargo System Pro until version 6.0 when it was changed to the Magaya Cargo System.[1] Users of the software include freight forwarders, NVOCCs (non-vessel owning common carriers), consolidators, warehouse providers, cargo airlines, import and export companies, distributors, and other logistics providers.[2] As a growing business in the Doral area of Miami, the Miami Herald featured Magaya Corporation in its “Neighbors” section on September 1, 2005.

In 2007, two additional software programs were released, Magaya WMS, a warehouse management system, and the Magaya Supply Chain Solution. Use of the WMS program is referred to in an Industry Week article.[3] In 2008 the company developed the Magaya Commerce System, software specifically for wholesalers, distributors, exporters and importers.[4]

Magaya Corporation is a member of the Florida Customs Brokers & Forwarders Association.[5]

Plug-ins for Magaya software add functions such as online tracking, scanning VIN barcodes, and communicating with ocean carriers via INTTRA Inc. INTTRA Inc. provides e-commerce solutions to the ocean freight industry. The software also connects to the US Customs Automated Export System (AES) for electronic filing of the required Electronic Export Information (EEI). Filing of import shipments can be done to comply with US Customs regulations such as the Importer Security Filing requirement, also known as the 10 + 2 initiative. There are additional products for tracking inventory and shipping transactions on smart phones [6] and other programs for warehouse bar code scanning.[7] The software enables counting inventory in a warehouse. The types of counts are described in an article in the September 2015 Material Handling News website and print magazine.[8]

Awards[edit]

The Magaya Network was awarded the 2005 IT Leadership Award in Florida.[9] ITFlorida.org, Inc. is an umbrella, not-for-profit, membership organization that represents Florida's diverse technology community on a statewide basis. The Magaya Network is the B2B infrastructure of Magaya software that enables online access for tracking and connects Magaya users so they can exchange international shipping transactions.

The company was selected as a Top 100 IT Solutions Provider in 2011 by Inbound Logistics magazine.[10]

Magaya WMS was included in the Inbound Logistics WMS Directory for 2010 and 2011.[11]

In 2012, Magaya was given the "Firm Of The Year" award by the FCBF.
