The international logistics provider continues to grow its global network and has opened a new branch office in Mexico City to be closer to local clients and partners. The cargo-partner team in Mexico now offers a full portfolio of air, sea and road transport services for its customers in the country, including door-to-door solutions to and from the USA.
Against the backdrop of ongoing logistics constraints, backlogs and delays in global supply chains, companies around the world are increasingly seeking out logistics providers who can offer specialized local support. To meet the needs of some of its key customers in Mexico and ensure fast and flexible service, cargo-partner has once again expanded its global network and opened a fully operational branch office in Mexico City.
The cargo-partner team in Mexico City offers a comprehensive portfolio of air, sea and road transport services including import and export customs clearance. In addition, the company plans to set up a local emergency desk providing round-the-clock availability for highly time-critical shipments.
The company had already established its first representation in Mexico in September 2021 with an Agents’ Liaison and Key Account Support Office in Puebla, serving one of its key customers from the automotive industry. With the new office in Mexico City, cargo-partner now extends this local support to all its customers who are active in the country.
Luis Gomez, Managing Director of cargo-partner in Mexico, explains the motivation behind this step: “After setting up the office in Puebla for one of our main clients, we soon realized that we want to provide the same quality and hands-on service for our other customers in this market as well. Recognizing Mexico’s great business potential as the 15th largest economy in the world, we decided to open a fully operational branch office in Mexico City to be closer to our customers, service providers and potential employees.”
Door-to-door service to and from USA
Needless to say, the new office in Mexico City also benefits from cargo-partner’s existing network in the USA, one of Mexico’s largest trading partners. The cargo-partner team in the USA will play an essential role in providing last-mile pick-ups and deliveries, next-flight-out services as well as expedited truck shipments for time-sensitive transports. In addition, cargo-partner continues to cooperate closely with its network of agents and partners across South America to further develop its services to and from Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Panama and other strategically significant countries in the region.
cargo-partner currently has more than 100 employees in the Americas, with seven branch offices in the USA as well as agent representations in Brazil, Chile and Mexico. The company operates two warehouses in Chicago, Illinois and Clarksville, Tennessee with 14,000 m² of storage space each.
