Yusen Logistics announced the start of construction of a logistics center near Celaya, Mexico, to meet the growing demands of its domestic and international automotive customers.

The company celebrated with a groundbreaking ceremony in Apaseo el Grande, Guanajuato, on March 11, 2016. Kunihiko Miyoshi, Chief Regional Officer of Yusen Logistics’ Americas Region, presided over the event, which was attended by officials and representatives from the Guanajuato governor’s office and the office of the Celaya mayor. The 53,820-square-foot 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 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,” said Miyoshi. “Our Bajio Logistics Center is in an ideal location to support the logistics needs of these companies and positions us as a key service provider, building on our existing strengths and capabilities. We look forward to serving our automotive customers as well as supporting the local community.”

“Building the logistics center is an important milestone for our company,” said Jordan Dewart, the newly-appointed President of Yusen Logistics (Mexico) S.A. de C.V. “This investment demonstrates our commitment to meet the growing logistics needs of the markets we serve. Yusen Logistics’ global reach gives us a clear advantage in the Mexico automotive market.”

Slated to be operational by the end of 2016, the warehouse will feature 10,764 square feet of office space, 10 dock doors, a large trailer yard and an ocean container depot, with extra room for expansion.  This is all part of a caluclated multi-step process with Yusen Logistics (Mexico) S.A. de C.V that started last year with the launching of a division in Celaya, Mexico, establishing a customs office in Mexico city airport, as well as a cross-dock office for air exports outside the airport.
