Mexico, July 11, 2014: GAC has boosted its logistics business in Mexico with the signing of an agency agreement with Mexican customs broker and freight forwarding company, Grupo MS based in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas.

Sergio Lara and Lars Heisselberg.

Grupo MS now joins GAC’s global logistics network as a trusted local partner, opening the door to companies located in Mexico to enjoy a joint portfolio of integrated logistics solutions. Grupo MS Director Sergio Lara has been appointed to liaise between the two companies and ensure smooth service delivery to its customers.

He says: "Grupo MS and GAC have been doing business together for several years, so it was a natural evolution to expand that relationship in order to offer Mexican businesses a seamless and integrated strategy to transport their cargo and tend to their high volume and special projects."

The new partnership will focus on serving the increasing trade between Asia and Mexico, in response to positive changes in trade agreements with China in particular, and following in-depth study of the market by GAC’s business development team.

Reggie Gray, GAC North America’s Vice President – Business Development, adds: "Last year, China and Mexico signed the Tequila Pact, encouraging trade between the two countries. GAC already has a strong presence in China, and throughout the region, and we want businesses in Mexico to know we have what it takes to meet their logistics needs to and from Asia."
