Mitsubishi Motors México inaugurates office in Lázaro Cárdenas

MEXICO CITY - Mitsubishi Motors de México officially inaugurated its new office in Lázaro Cárdenas, strategically located in the National Port System Administration (ASIPONA). This move responds to Mitsubishi Motors' need to expedite the arrival and delivery of vehicles to its distributors and customers.

In these offices, there is a dedicated and specialized team whose main mission is to assist and speed up the unloading processes of units coming from Japan, Thailand and Indonesia.

Mitsubishi Motors de México moved its logistics operations from Mazatlán to Lázaro Cárdenas in 2020, marking the beginning of its activities in this port. Thanks to the support of ASIPONA and ADUANA, growth and efficiencies have been achieved.

For the Japanese fiscal year 2024, Mitsubishi Motors is expected to land more than 30,000 vehicles (April 2024 to March 2025).

The inauguration and ribbon cutting ceremony was attended by Mitsubishi Motors de Mexico executives and representatives of ASIPONA, Customs, as well as important strategic logistics partners of the brand, who, with their participation, marked the beginning of this new stage and commitment to operational efficiency and strategic expansion of the brand.

"We are excited about the future and are confident that this new facility in Lázaro Cárdenas will strengthen our ability to meet the expectations of our customers and business partners." added Ah-kin Vázquez, president & CEO of Mitsubishi Motors de México.

The port of Lázaro Cárdenas displaced Veracruz to second place as a recipient of imported automobiles. The port of Lázaro Cárdenas is one of the most important ports and receives more than 584,559 automobiles, experiencing an increase of 9.9% compared to the end of 2022 (SEMAR). This port plays a crucial role in logistics operations, as its strategic location and capacity make this port a fundamental piece in the supply chain.

With the commissioning of the new offices, the capacity to face logistical challenges with a strategic and forward-looking perspective is boosted to continue raising standards in all operations.

According to the brand's figures, logistics costs and transit time in Lázaro Cárdenas were reduced by more than 20%.
