Cross-border trade in Mexico targeted

Maersk has launched a new 30,000 square metre facility in Tijuana, Mexico.

Recognising the potential of Tijuana as a key player in trade between the US and Mexico, Maersk’s new site will service customers in the technology, automotive, retail and lifestyle sectors, who are looking for cross-border capabilities.

The new facility enjoys a geographical advantage, positioned near major commercial ports, such as Los Angeles/Long Beach, California and Ensenada, Mexico. It lies just 15 km from the Otay Commercial Port and 20 km away from the San Ysidro Commercial Port, which spans the border between San Ysidro, California, and Tijuana.

The site is part of the Manufacturing, Maquiladora and Export Services Industry (IMMEX) services program for the Tijuana market. It offers services such as sorting, storage, cross-docking, inventory management, and a range of value-added services including labelling, packaging, re-packaging and order fulfilment.

The new site has rooftop solar panels, 100 per cent electric material-handling equipment, LED lighting, heat island reduction, indoor and outdoor water use reduction and waste management systems.

“With a focus on IMMEX program services, inventory control and seamless cross-border integration, we’re positioned to capitalise on the manufacturing landscape in Mexico, and our commitment to delivering unparalleled service to our customers,” said Managing Director for Maersk in Mexico, Patricia Perez Salazar. “By strategically leveraging our new warehouse in Tijuana, tailored to the complexities of cross-border trade, we’re better positioned to provide our customers in the region truly integrated logistics solutions.”
