Logistics firm the Rhenus Group has recently expanded its air and ocean division for the Americas to include Mexico City.
The new branch will offer cross-border services to facilitate trade between the US and Mexico.
The company said that the new subsidiary will provide a full range of end-to-end services, such as air and ocean freight, trucking, cross boarding and customs clearance.
“Our presence in Mexico City reinforces Rhenus’ commitment to the Americas. Not only will it be an addition to the Rhenus Global Network of more than 750 locations worldwide, but our new branch will continue to provide customized supply chain solutions that create value and a competitive edge,” said Pamela Osornio, managing director for Rhenus Mexico.
The new branch is 20 minutes away from Mexico’s largest airport, the Benito Juarez International Airport (MEX), with representatives sitting in the airport’s customs office allowing “prompt receipt and clearance of cargo”.
In addition, Rhenus Mexico is present in the country’s main seaports: Manzanillo, Lazaro Cardenas, Veracruz and Altamira. Cross border services are available in Laredo to facilitate the trade between the US and Mexico.
“In line with our plan of expansion in the Americas, the addition of Mexico is strategically another milestone on our services to expand in Latin America,” said Jörn Schmersahl, chief executive of Rhenus Air & Ocean Americas. “We are committed and excited to set a footprint in Mexico that will enable us to continue creating innovative solutions for our existing and future customers within a country where the logistics and supply chain industry is rapidly growing.”
