The strategic importance of being located in Mexico is underlined by C.H. Robinson’s celebration this month of a quarter of a century of business operations there.
The company said in a press release that over the years, trade between the US and Mexico has become increasingly important. “Mexico continues to play a vital role across global supply chains due to the country’s business culture, educated workforce, and proximity to the United States,” it said in a press release.
A global provider of multimodal logistics services, fresh produce sourcing, and information services, C.H. Robinson also said its presence in Mexico “is bolstered by global freight forwarding and over a century of fresh produce expertise.”
Director of the Mexico region, Mike Burkhart, said customers rely on the company’s “experience and cultural knowledge, confidence, and unmatched expertise to accelerate their success in Mexico.”
“We look forward many more years of collaborating with our customers and deepening our value proposition in this growing region,” he said.
C.H. Robinson has more than 200 bilingual employees in 10 offices in Mexico and along the border between the US and Mexico. Founded in 1905, it now provides services to 46,000 customers globally through a network of more than 280 offices and has about 11,000 employees worldwide, working with 66,000 transportation providers. Its revenue last year was $13.5 billion.
