Menlo Worldwide Logistics, the global logistics subsidiary of Con-way Inc., announced that it is expanding its presence in Guadalajara, Mexico. The expansion will include a relocation of functions from Mexico City to Guadalajara, including sales, finance, administrative, transportation management and engineering.
Menlo will continue to serve Mexico City through its existing network of distribution centers and account representatives. Currently, Menlo manages more than 15,000 square meters of warehouse space in Mexico with distribution facilities in Mexico City, Monterrey and Guadalajara. Menlo says the move to Guadalajara, known as a growing high-tech market, will position it to take advantage of the region’s rich labor pool, and to better serve existing and future customers as the region continues to expand.
“Our unique supply chain solution is predicated on hiring, training and maintaining top industry talent,” says Robert Gahagen, Menlo’s director of operations for Mexico and Latin America. “Relocating the regional offices to Guadalajara will provide Menlo with access to the staffing resources that will support our continued expansion in this market and provide the best service to our customers throughout the region.”
