SEKO Logistics is continuing to extend its global reach by announcing a substantial expansion in Mexico.
It is investing significantly to establish logistics centres and infrastructure to meet growing client demand in the automotive, retail and aerospace industries, which includes the opening of the first facility of nearly 10,000 square metres in Ocoyoacac on 7 March.
In the first phase, SEKO Logistics Mexico will operate from locations in Laredo/Nuevo Laredo, McAllen/Reynosa, Mexico City, Monterrey, Toluca and Queretaro, and phase two will see this network to grow to 20 locations with the opening of further warehouse and office operations.
This was the first project completed under the director of William J. Wascher, who took over as chairman last month to focus on strategic initiatives for the company.
He says: “This is a true milestone in the development of SEKO Logistics and will enable us to provide to clients in Mexico and other countries the unique forwarding, logistics and technology solutions that have successfully driven SEKO’s growth in the 40 existing countries where we already operate.
“The potential for us in Mexico is further enhanced by our network of nearly 60 locations right next door in the United States. Together, we offer the local and international expertise customers require and we are excited by the tremendous opportunities we see ahead.”
SEKO Logistics Mexico managing director, Manuel Diaz says: “We will offer the scope and quality of services that will ensure best-in-class solutions for our clients, including airfreight and ocean logistics, ground transportation, warehousing and distribution, and customs and compliance within fully secured environments.
“We are open for business and ready to talk to new customers that want to discuss their requirements and the range of solutions and benefits SEKO can offer.”
