Yusen Logistics expands services in Mexico automotive market 16 March 2016

Manufacturers have invested in large assembly plants in the Bajio area

Yusen Logistics is building a logistics centre near Celaya, Mexico, to meet the growing demands of its domestic and international automotive customers. The warehouse, expected to be operational by the end of 2016, will feature 1,000 m2 of office space, 10 dock doors, a large trailer yard and an ocean container depot. There is room for expansion, including the capacity to double the amount of warehouse and office space and add a cross-dock facility with 30 dock doors.

The automotive industry is growing at a tremendous pace in Mexico. In recent years, a number of major auto manufacturers invested in large assembly plants in the Bajio area. This is bringing many Tier 1 and Tier 2 auto suppliers into the region as well.

The 5,000 m2 warehouse is strategically located on a 17-acre site in the Amistad Industrial Park in the Bajio region, one of the largest automotive clusters in Latin America. The industrialised area offers access to a highly-developed road and rail network, and strengthens Yusen Logistics’ global capabilities to offer automotive supply chain solutions to OEMs, as well as Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers, conducting business in Mexico.

Services include just-in-time scheduling, domestic truck, rail and intermodal transportation, international freight forwarding, project cargo, import/export services, warehousing and value-add services, and trade compliance.

Last year, Yusen Logistics (Mexico) S.A. de C.V. launched an Automotive Logistics division in Celaya, Mexico, and established a customs office in the Mexico City Airport, as well as a cross-dock office for air exports outside the airport. The Company also arranges significant US/Mexico cross-border rail and trucking for its customers and partners with its affiliate, Yusen Logistics (Americas), which operates a 9,300 m2 warehouse in Laredo, TX.
