ITASCA, Illinois – AIT Worldwide Logistics has opened a new location at Mexico City International Airport.

“We’re eager to expand our reach and strengthen our service offerings with this newest location,” said AIT president and CEO, Vaughn Moore.

Mexico City is major hub and a key city for our growing international network. This office will play a significant role in broadening our scope of solutions between Mexico and the United States, as well as Asia and Europe.”

AIT-Mexico City will provide a complete array of logistics products, including transborder expertise, warehousing, customs brokerage and IMMEX services, with a focus on air freight, particularly in the automotive, food logistics, technology and life sciences sectors.

Placing AIT’s fifth location in Mexico in the continent’s most populous city, and at the country’s biggest airport, was a strategic decision, according to AIT’s managing director Mexico, Daniel Estrada.

According to Estrada, increased access to farmers is a key differentiator for the food logistics market, as is the cold chain infrastructure already in place at Mexico City International Airport.

“We selected an on-site location at the airport because it gives us direct access to the cargo terminal, speeding up turnaround times and communication,” he added.

Located at Mexico City International Airport, AIT-Mexico City is AIT’s fifth station in the country, along with locations in Guadalajara, Hermosillo, Monterrey and Tijuana:
