Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL) announced that it has expanded its Mexico operations with the acquisition of Carlogistics, an automotive logistics company. Carlogistics will be integrated into WWL Vehicle Services Americas.
The acquisition adds two facilities and nearly 100 employees to WWL’s auto logistics network in Mexico. Processing centres in Cuautitlan and near Veracruz cater to the integrated logistics needs of car manufacturers in preparation for export and domestic consumption. Key services at the facilities include vehicle processing, body shop work and storage, as well as supply chain and distribution management.
“Expanding its scope of operations and continuing to invest in Mexico allows WWL Vehicle Services Americas to deliver top quality, reliable services to car manufacturers in an important high-demand, fast-growing market,” said John Felitto, President and Chief Executive Officer of WWL Vehicle Services Americas.
WWL Vehicle Services Americas network in Mexico now includes a total of nine vehicle processing centres based at auto plants and standalone processing locations, and an ocean transportation service that connects auto manufacturers to the US, Europe, Middle East and rest of the world. The network’s annual throughput in Mexico is 1.6m cars and it maintains a workforce of approximately 1,100 employees.
