MEXICO LOGISTICS & INFRASTRUCTURE FOR IMPORT AND EXPORT

Mexico Logistics & Infrastructure for Import and Export

Baja California is Mexico’s most western state located just south of California. The Tijuana/San Diego border region is one of the largest in the world for both tourism and commercial trade.

With the enactment of NAFTA, Mexico has invested significantly in infrastructure improvements to maintain existing roads and transportation corridors, as well as investing in new infrastructure in order attract new commercial trade to the region. Years of experience between US logistics and Mexico logistics working closely together now register more than 16.9 customs interactions a year.

Mexico Highways and Transportation

Strategic Crossborder Gateways: Tijuana and Otay Mesa Enable Seamless North American Trade Access

Tijuana and the Otay Mesa Commercial border crossings are located just minutes south of San Diego, California, giving commercial transportation access to all major North American trade corridors and NAFTA.

Baja California has a strong network of well-maintained highways with Highway 1 as the major artery connecting the entire state to the US via San Diego. Running east from Tijuana, Highway 2 provides direct connection to eastern commercial land ports of entry like those in Nogales and El Paso.

Mexico’s major highway and transportation networks were made for connecting industry to U.S. ports of entry. Mexico’s highways connect directly to major U.S. transportation arteries making crossborder logistics a breeze.

Deep Water Seaports in Mexico

On Mexico’s west coast of Baja California, the deep-water seaport in Ensenada just 1.5 hours south of San Diego, California, connects the state to the major shipping port in in Long Beach. Mainland Mexico has 117 and terminals connected to more than 145, each located near high commercial and manufacturing activity and connected to the Mexico’s highway network.

Mexico’s main container ports allow for bonded and in-bond shipments. The main shipping lines providing regular container service to and from Mexico are: MSC, Hapag-Lloyd, Hamburg Süd Line, CMA CGM, ZIM Container Service and Seaboard Marine.

Seamless Air Connectivity: Mexico's International Airports and Crossborder Innovations Facilitate Efficient Business Travel

Executives also enjoy access to San Diego’s International located 20 minutes from the Tijuana and the US/Mexico border.

The San Diego/Tijuana Crossborder Xpress (CBX) is an enclosed pedestrian skywalk bridge for Tijuana Airport passengers who need to cross the US/Mexico border as a part of their trip. U.S. executives are utilizing this new infrastructure investment to make to speed up business travel and avoid driving across when going to and from their Mexico maquiladoras.

MEXICO UTILITIES INFRASTRUCTURE

Utility costs include electricity and natural gas costs and represent up to 8.9 percent of total location-sensitive costs. Mexico has very low utility costs when compared to other major growth markets. For example, the capital of Baja California, Mexicali, lies just east of Tijuana, supplies most of its inhabitant’s electricity from hydroelectric power provided by the Colorado River.
 
Currently, utility costs are 4.79% less than in China. Within the last 2 years Mexico also made the electrical infrastructure for new facility sites easier to obtain by streamlining procedures, offering training opportunities to private contractors, using a geographic information system (GIS) to map the electricity distribution network and increasing the stock of materials.
