Seko Logistics' new distribution centre in MexicoAutomotive logistics services provider Seko Logistics is enlarging its presence in Mexico by setting up operations in six locations alongside its new distribution centre in the country.

As a first phase of expansion, the company is establishing offices in Mexico City, Monterrey city, Toluca city and Queretaro state, as well as in the Laredo-Nuevo Laredo and Reynosa-McAllen conurbations straddling the Mexico-US border. The company has already opened its first distribution centre in Mexico, a facility of almost 10,000 sq.m, in Ocoyoacac, near Mexico City (pictured).

Chicago-based Seko said it was investing significantly to meet growing client demand in the automotive, retail and aerospace industries, and that it planned to increase its Mexican network to a total of 20 warehouses and offices in a second phase of expansion.

The company will offer its OEM, tier one and other clients air freight, ocean logistics, ground transport, warehousing and distribution, customs and compliance within fully secured environments in Mexico, said Manuel Diaz, newly appointed managing director of Seko Logistics Mexico.

The group’s services include manufacturing support, inbound supplier management, aftermarket parts replenishment and reverse logistics. The company currently operates from more than 120 offices in 40 countries, including two previously-established offices in Mexico.
