BNSF Logistics Opens Subsidiary in Mexico
BNSF Logistics, a multi-modal third-party logistics service provider, announces a new subsidiary in Mexico, BNSF Railway Servicios de Logistica.
The move further strengthens BNSF Logistics’ service offering across North America and globally, according to a company statement.
BNSF Logistics has been an active global service provider for more than a decade, and with the creation of Logistica, which is based in Monterrey, BNSF Logistics will now have the additional local resources to support Mexico-based customers better than ever. The opening of Logistica’s office in Monterrey means that BNSF Logistics is now present at a local level for the hands-on movement of industrial products with a focus on project cargo and rail services throughout Mexico.
The Mexico headquarters of BNSF Logisitcs will be led by Gerardo Guarjardo, the newly named Director of Mexico Projects and Rail Services. He comes to BNSF Logistics with more than 20 years of experience in the logistics industry. Guarjardo previously held the role of Market Manager for Petroleum Products, Minerals and Machinery at BNSF Railway’s Mexico subsidiary, where he played a key role in strategic plan development for growth in Monterrey.
“Monterrey is an ideal location for BNSF Logistics’ first expansion into Mexico, as it is Mexico’s third largest city and has close proximity to the U.S. border,” said Ray Greer, president of BNSF Logistics. “The Monterrey Region is strategically important to our growth plans in Mexico, and having a local presence is key to developing vendor and client relationships. “BNSF Logistics is excited to launch our Mexican subsidiary and address the growing need for a locally operated logistics service provider with the resources, financial depth and compliance management, that we can provide.”
With Logistica’s launch, BNSF Logistics now has more than 26 offices across North America. BNSF Logistics is a subsidiary of Burlington Northern Santa Fe, LLC, a Berkshire Hathaway company.
