Nippon Express de Mexico to open Aguascalientes Logistics Center
August 24, 2016
Nippon Express de Mexico S.A. de C.V. (Masao Bando, President; hereinafter, "NE Mexico"), a subsidiary of Nippon Express Co., Ltd. (Kenji Watanabe, President), recently established the Aguascalientes Logistics Center in the city of Aguascalientes as its second business location in the state of Aguascalientes, and this Center will open for business on September 5, 2016.
Japanese finished-vehicle manufacturers are among the many automobile-related companies that have set up operations in the state of Aguascalientes, situated on the Central Mexican Plateau, and recent years have seen growing demand for more sophisticated logistics than simple transport of goods from point A to point B.
Located within the FINSA Aguascalientes Industrial Park 10km from Aguascalientes International Airport, the Aguascalientes Logistics Center serves as a product supply hub offering Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI)*1, Just-in-Time (JIT) delivery, and delivery agency services, and utilizes Nippon Express' network in Mexico to operate as a cross-dock center*2 and distribution processing base capable of meeting the full range of logistics needs with sophisticated high-quality services.
NE Mexico was established in 1990, and now does business in 10 Mexican cities, including Mexico City and Guanajuato (Silao). The Aguascalientes Logistics Center will join the Guanajuato and San Luis Potosi facilities as NE Mexico's third logistics center, bolstering that company's logistics functions in Mexico and offering customers high-quality logistics services.
