As the nearshoring trend gains traction, more companies are considering Mexico as a base for manufacturing and assembly. That makes Mexico: Trucking, Railroads, and Third-Party Logistics Market Report, a new publication from the research and consulting firm Armstrong & Associates, particularly timely. Plus, the report is packed with hard-to-find information that is useful for anyone doing business south of the border.
The 150-page report begins with an overview of the basics: Mexico's economy, total logistics costs by mode, cross-border traffic and trade statistics, and a helpful walk-through of northbound and southbound customs and border-crossing procedures.
Part Two includes profiles of some of the major international transportation and third-party logistics companies (3PLs) operating in Mexico. The profiles go beyond simple facts and figures to include detailed descriptions and competitive analyses of each company's business model and service offerings, along with some customer case studies. Part Three includes a directory of Mexico's largest trucking companies and brief profiles of about a dozen homegrown 3PLs.
Part Four is a goldmine for anyone with an interest in Mexico's automotive industry. It provides an overview of the market; information about the country's assembly plants and the truckers, railroads, and 3PLs that serve them; and a list of auto parts suppliers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their service providers.
