Shipping News Feature MEXICO – US headquartered freight forwarding outfit SEKO Logistics has announced what it describes as a 'massive expansion' of its operations in Mexico. The first phase will see the air and ocean freight and road haulage company operate from locations in Laredo/Nuevo Laredo, McAllen/Reynosa, Mexico City, Monterrey, Toluca, and Queretaro. Phase two is intended to see this network grow to 20 locations with the opening of further warehouse and office operations.

In what is part of a global expansion strategy, SEKO says it is investing significantly to establish logistics centres and infrastructure needed to meet growing client demand in the automotive, retail and aerospace industries. This includes the opening of the first facility of nearly 10,000 square metres in the State of Mexico and the Mexican operation inaugurated its new Distribution Centre located in Ocoyoacac, State of Mexico, on 7 March 2018.

This is the first project successfully completed under the direction of William J. Wascher, who took over as SEKO Logistics’ Chairman last month to focus on strategic initiatives for the company. In this full-time role, he is responsible for identifying new ways to grow the business with initiatives such as this ‘watershed’ expansion for SEKO in Mexico. Wascher said:

“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.”

The man at the head of the new operations drive in the country is Manuel Diaz, newly-appointed Managing Director of SEKO Logistics México, who added:

“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.”
