Redwood Logistics Mexico, Redwood Logistics Expansion in Monterrey, Mexico

Near-shoring is not a new idea, but what is new is the scale of investment that companies are making.

Redwood Logistics is expanding its operations into new offices in Monterrey, Mexico. Redwood Mexico has operated south of the border for more than five years, but the expansion of Monterrey operations reflects the investment businesses are making in near-shoring efforts as they look to reduce manufacturing and cash-to-cash cycles.

 

 

Redwood Logistics Expansion: Seizing Opportunities in Mexico

“Mexico has evolved from an exporter of basic goods to a manufacturing hub for the most complex and technologically advanced consumer goods, and we are seeing major investments from the world’s largest retailers and manufacturers from industries including automotive, appliances, aerospace, pharmaceutical, HVAC, and food and beverage,” said Redwood Mexico President Jordan Dewart.

“As shippers of all kinds make the move south of the border, it’s vital that we grow to match their efforts.” With our expansion in Monterrey, we’re now able to service more cross-border freight beyond the over 25,000 shipments we already oversee on a yearly basis.

Why Monterrey Matters for Near-Shoring

Our Monterrey operation will interact seamlessly with our well-established footprint in El Paso and Laredo, Texas, to provide total visibility of all shipments on both sides of the border.

Near-shoring’s Impact on Exports and Transportation

According to CANACAR, which represents the interests of the transportation industry in Mexico, it is estimated that exports derived from near-shoring into Mexico could reach $35 billion. In current standing, Mexico’s industrial park occupancy hit a record high last year, growing 30 percent compared to 2021 and an average occupancy rate of more than 97 percent.

The Benefits of Near-Shoring for Shippers

As for the physical transportation of goods, near-shoring could provide motor transport growth of 20 percent in the next two to three years.

“The port disruption and manufacturing delays that shippers experienced due to the pandemic was a wakeup call of epic proportions,” Dewart added. “Near-shoring is not a new idea, but what is new is the scale of investment that companies are making. The savings you get from manufacturing in Asia are offset if your containers sit on ships for hundreds of days, you rack up huge demurrage fees, and chassis are unavailable at the destination port. With Mexico, you simply put what you need on a truck and can have it at a final-mile distribution warehouse within days, rather than months.”
