SEKO Logistics expands into Mexico with six locations

Manuel Diaz, newly-appointed managing director of SEKO Logistics México

SEKO Logistics has increased its global footprint with a "massive expansion" in Mexico that will see six locations opened, and 14 more in due course to meet growing client demand in the automotive, retail and aerospace industries.

In its first phase, SEKO Logistics Mexico will operate from locations in Laredo/Nuevo Laredo, McAllen/Reynosa, Mexico City, Monterrey, Toluca, and Queretaro. Phase two will see this network grow to 20 locations with the opening of further warehouse and office operations.

SEKO said that it is "investing significantly" to establish logistics centers and infrastructure, including the opening of a nearly 10,000 sq m distribution center located in Ocoyoacac, State of Mexico.

This is the first project successfully completed under the direction of William Wascher, who took over as SEKO Logistics’ chairman last month (February 2017) to focus on strategic initiatives for the company.

In this full-time role, Wascher 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 US. Together, we offer the local and international expertise customers require and we are excited by the tremendous opportunities we see ahead.”

Manuel Diaz, newly-appointed managing director of SEKO Logistics México, 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.”
