Coyote Logistics hopes to better assist its customers throughout Latin America with the opening of a new office in Guadalajara, Jalisco, in Mexico.
As a UPS company, Coyote will continue to offer truckload, less-than-truckload, intermodal brokerage and transportation management services to shippers via the new office in Guadalajara.
Jonathan Sisler, president of Coyote Logistics, said, “The Guadalajara office is a smart expansion for Coyote and our customers.
“We have been arranging the movement of freight into, out of and within Mexico for years, but this expansion allows us to further develop the intra-Mexico business and execute a broader, more complex array of services to existing and new customers both in Mexico and North America.”
Headquartered in Chicago, the Coyote network consists of 40,000 contract carriers, more than 14,000 shippers, and software designed to facilitate trucking services between shipping companies and carriers across a range of modes and service offerings.
Coyote offers a partial or fully outsourced supply chain management program called Collaborative Transportation Management (CTM), as well as a suite of technology solutions in the region that provide shippers with greater control over their evolving supply chains.
Cesar Valdez, Coyote’s Guadalajara senior manager, commented, “This is a significant opportunity for Coyote within the Mexican market. “We have already made progress developing relationships with shippers and carriers in Mexico.
“We are increasing our capabilities more than ever before, creating greater awareness of our services, and we are just getting started.”
The USA and Mexico are very active trade partners, with the two countries exchanging an average of US$1.4bn in commercial trade every day. A majority of freight moves northbound from Mexico to the USA.
