Online freight forwarding firm iContainers plans to expand its Miami staff after launching a door-to-door delivery service between the U.S. and Spain.

The company was founded in Barcelona in 2008 and opened its U.S. headquarters in Miami in 2013. After securing a $1.4 million round of Series B funding in February from Kibo Ventures, Vitamina K and GrupoRomeu, it s ready to begin its new service. It already ships to anywhere in the world and now it will provide door-to-door service between the U.S. and Spain.

“This new online service is much like what FedEx1 does with letters and packages, iContainers managing director and co-founder Carlos Hernandez2 said in a news release. “”Our customers don’t need to hire a shipping broker or another intermediary to manage logistics.

With eight employees currently in Miami, iContainers hopes to reach 25 employees here by 2016.

The company completed about 4,000 international shipments in 2014. It plans to eventually expand the door-to-door service to the rest of Europe and Latin America.
