With the rapid growth of the automotive industry and increase in imported freight in Mexico, the need for detailed transportation management is rising. To respond to this demand, Yusen Logistics has opened a Customs Office for air import within the free trade zone of Mexico City Airport. Until now, the company conducted these operations through an agency, but by managing these operations internally, it will realise the smooth implementation of various kinds of transportation control, such as checking freight status within airport transit shed, ensuring efficient customs clearance and supervising loading of trucks.

In addition, a cross dock office for air export has been opened outside the airport. By taking over tasks previously handled by an agency, such as negotiating freight charges with airlines and issuing air waybills, Yusen Logistics will provide competitive freight charge procurement and a high quality transportation operation. Looking ahead, the company plans to further improve the quality and marketing power of its air transportation service for freight departing from and arriving in Mexico by arranging a similar structure at Guadaljara and Monterey airports.
