The new facility joins AIT-Hermosillo to become the company’s second location in Mexico.
Greg Weigel, Executive Vice President at AIT said, “We are pleased to be opening AIT-Monterrey in support of the company’s exponential growth in Mexico. This new office connects another key industrial city to our expanding international network. AIT-Monterrey will also serve as the primary hub in Mexico to connect with our U.S. trucking network. This enhancement creates new solutions for our customers – not just for U.S. distribution, but also for import and export services with Asia and Europe.”
Monterrey anchors the third most populous metropolitan area in the country and according to Weigel, many of AIT’s global customers have operations based in the region. In addition to being a top trading partner with the United States, Mexico is also well-connected to the same critical trade lanes from China that support a multitude of North American companies.
Weigel added, “Monterrey is important not only as a thriving manufacturing base, but also because many of their prominent industries are supported by AIT’s special services.”
In addition to domestic and transborder FTL and LTL trucking options, AIT-Monterrey office provides a complete array of logistics products including freight forwarding and consolidation for both air and ocean lanes, customs brokerage, cargo insurance and project cargo services. For warehousing needs, the team partners with a local facility capable of providing up to 8,000 square meters of storage space.
