C.H. Robinson Celebrates 25 Years of Business in Mexico

May 26, 2015

Confident and poised for future growth, C.H. Robinson is proud to be celebrating a quarter of a century of business operations in Mexico.

Throughout the years, trade between the United States 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.

With over 200 bilingual employees in 10 offices in Mexico and along the border between the United States and Mexico, C.H. Robinson provides reliable services that address the unique transportation challenges presented at the border and throughout Mexico while offering global visibility.

“Customer-led innovation brought us to Monterrey, Mexico 25 years ago. We are committed to continuing to help our customers navigate the ins and outs of doing business and providing cost effective supply chain solutions,” said Mike Burkhart, director of the Mexico Region at C.H. Robinson.

Over the past 25 years companies doing business in Mexico have benefited from C.H. Robinson’s robust capacity network, integrated and flexible cross border solutions, customs brokerage, as well as intra-Mexico transportation services. In addition to traditional freight services, C.H. Robinson’s presence in Mexico is bolstered by global freight forwarding and over a century of fresh produce expertise.

“Our customers rely on our experience and cultural knowledge, confidence, and unmatched expertise to accelerate their success in Mexico,” said Burkhart. “We look forward many more years of collaborating with our customers and deepening our value proposition in this growing region.”
