Mexico’s logistics market has been highly active in recent years, and the various sub-sectors are focused on investments and improvements to remain competitive in the international market.

Hector Midolo

CEO of Latin America, Bolloré Logistics, Mexico

Bolloré Logistics has traditionally been a dominant force in the aerospace industry. In Mexico, this sector has experienced rapid growth in recent years, and we are contributing to its development. However, aerospace is not the only industry we are specialized in; we have also a strong presence in cosmetics, luxury goods, and flavors & fragrances. In 2023, we made substantial investments in the automotive and cosmetics industry by opening specific vertical centers staffed with dedicated professionals possessing expertise in each one. We offer our customers comprehensive services ranging from the implementation of multimodal transport solutions (air, ocean, road, rail) to the management and monitoring of goods flows in real time, 24/7, and the management of freight capacities. Bolloré Logistics’ philosophy is to be closely connected to the customer, engaging all teams from sales to management. We continuously invest and innovate in our digital solutions to satisfy their needs and support them in developing their business. Another significant focus is sustainability, as sustomers are increasingly demanding environmental considerations. What sets us apart is our ability to not only respond to the typical tender with a traditional offer, but also our commitment to providing a sustainability offering. Being part of an international company also enables us to rely on our regional teams as well as the global team to offer end-to-end services.

Kevin Schoberth

Managing Director, Dietrich Logistics, Mexico

The industry is actively exploring sustainable alternatives, with a focus on greener fuels, and we are dependent on the available technological solutions. For example, in our Mexico operations, we do not own a fleet of trucks. In contrast, our Italian partners are striving to transition its entire trucking division to electric trucks. In Mexico, a strategic choice was made at a certain point not to invest in physical assets like warehouses, trucks, or buildings. Our role initially centered on executing operations secured by our German headquarters or other international offices, such as those in Brazil, Argentina, and beyond. Our network in Mexico comprises a diversified pool of truckers with varying units and geographical coverage across the country. For exports, whether they involve sea freight or air freight, our role encompasses collection and conveyance to ports or airports. However, we have made modest contributions by going paperless and embarked on digitalization some time ago, minimizing our reliance on printers. We also prioritize the safety of our customers’ cargo and drivers and continue to take proactive steps. We can implement remote surveillance through integrated GPS in the trucks. Our partners can track the cargo and communicate with drivers if any route deviations occur. If a driver does not respond, our direct link to 911, established through special police arrangements, ensures swift action.

Pablo Moreno

President, AMPM

Our company is growing rapidly in e-commerce. Given that we have delivered millions of letters over the past 73 years, our background and expertise in postal delivery enabled us to transform ourselves into a courier service as well. Today, we are among the largest companies in Mexico doing this. We began by planning out in detail our precise needs to continue future operations effectively—how many vehicles, staff, delivery bikes, and so forth. As a result, we are now fully prepared to accomplish the commitment we made to our clients. We have had many other companies contact us seeking our help. Yet, we have had to decline, as our capacity remains fully committed to the many customers we are already working with. We expect to see 250% growth in e-commerce, which will be a real challenge for logistics companies to keep pace with. We are planning to grow and integrate with other companies. While this commercial activity is great for the Mexican economy, the growing tendency to shop online will affect physical stores, and department stores in particular. We have to take advantage of this opportunity though and make sure we are prepared. The golden triangle comprising CDMX, Guadalajara, and Monterrey and everything in between is where 70% of purchases are made, and, therefore, we are focused on this area.
