As chief strategy officer for Yusen Logistics (Americas) Inc. and vice chair of the Intermodal Association of North America, Adriene Bailey, spoke to the American Journal of Transportation website on August 22, and among other issues, she talked about her company’s operation in the Bajío region:
Mexico is a place where we are doing a lot of investing. Mexico is one of the most important logistics markets in our network, and we have been operating there with an experienced Yusen Logistics team since 1997.
In addition to the cross-border truck and intermodal, air and ocean freight forwarding services we provide, we are investing in facilities and integrated supply chain services to support highly reliable just-in-time delivery capability for our automotive and other manufacturing clients who rely on international inbound components to support their operations.
Yusen Logistics has recently opened new warehouses and air freight operating centers in Monterrey and Guadalajara to complement our existing operations in Mexico City and Celaya and at the border in Laredo, Texas.
Guadalajara is quickly becoming the critical hub for automotive air freight shipments into Mexico.
Our Bajio Logistics Center near Celaya, Guanajuato, will be completed later this year and is dedicated to the automotive manufacturing logistics cluster in the Bajio region.
Yusen Logistics’ new 60,000-square-foot warehouse sits on 17 acres inside the Amistad Industrial Park and will include container and trailer staging capability to provide a total logistics offering to our customers.
Major automotive manufacturers have already announced plant construction in the region, and we expect this trend to continue.
