Yusen opens new logistics centre in Mexico

Yusen Logistics has opened a 53,820 sq ft multi-purpose logistics centre near Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico. The new centre is designed to meet the growing demands of Yusen’s domestic and international automotive customers and will also serve as the headquarters for its Mexico division.

The facility is located on a 17 acre site in the Bajio region, one of the largest automotive clusters in Latin America. The warehouse features 10,764 sq ft of office space, 10 dock doors, a 64,583 sq ft trailer yard and an ocean container depot with capacity for 1,000 TEUs. There is also room for expansion, including the capacity to double the amount of warehouse and office space and add a cross-dock facility with 30 dock doors.

The Bajio Logistics Center will initially employ 100 people, with further prospects as the facility grows in size.  The centre’s services will include just-in-time scheduling, domestic truck, rail and intermodal transportation, international freight forwarding, import/export services and warehousing.

Kenji Mizushima, President of Yusen Logistics Co., Ltd said, “The Bajio Logistics Center will serve as the cornerstone for our global automotive network, as well as the control centre for the Mexico market. By firmly establishing our presence in this region, we can provide additional support to our customers and contribute to the local community.”
