Mexico’s geographical position has been a crucial element in the country’s development as an automotive investment destination. However, beyond exports to the US, companies are gradually growing their trade operations with European and Asian countries. Both OEMs and suppliers keep bringing new projects to the country and they still trust in Mexico’s capabilities as a logistics hub. In my opinion, with or without NAFTA, Mexico will maintain its position as a true logistics hub and an automotive powerhouse for years to come. One of the main concerns for both clients and forwarders is security and I think we will continue facing these issues in the foreseeable future. If we focus on areas of opportunity, digitalization could help strengthen national logistics operations. An automated customs service could help operations be much faster and seamless especially addressing inbound issues.
