- 3PL suppliers (outsourced logistics) offer greater operational optimization, security and better customer service.
- For the fourth time, FEMSA Logistics participated as a platinum sponsor at Logistic Summit 2017, where it pointed out the added value that outsourced logistics companies bring to the economic sectors.
Mexico City, March 30th, 2017.- The constant technological advances, as well as new tendencies like reverse logistics, push the companies to look for new operating models that will allow them to satisfy their customers’ needs in a profitable way. Given this scenario, having an outsourced logistics supplier, or a 3PL, can add efficiency and innovation to their supply chain, as said by FEMSA Logistics Mexico Operations Director, Ramiro Delgado, at his conference ‘When to Outsource Logistics?’, during Logistic Summit 2017.
To meet these challenges, each company must do a deep analysis of its logistics’ needs in transportation, storage and inventory management, making it critical to have a specialized strategic ally that allows the company to focus in its business goals and thus gain competitiveness in the market. “Working with 3PL companies like FEMSA Logistics allow you to make the most of innovation, technology, efficiency, experience and scale of operations to meet the national and international market’s challenges”, said FEMSA Logistics Mexico Operations Director, Ramiro Delgado.
The Director also highlighted the importance of the company having a transformational logistics vision, which is more strategic because it considers the environment and the challenges related to scale economies, such as the lack of skilled labor and the monitoring of productivity.
In this sense, FEMSA Logistics has positioned itself as a leader company in comprehensive logistics solutions by offering transportation, storage, fleet maintenance and international logistics services to more than 140 clients, such as Heineken, Coca-Cola FEMSA, OXXO, Jugos del Valle, Vitromex, Absormex, Alpla, Vitro, among others.
Finally, Ramiro Delgado highlighted that, with almost 20 years of experience, presence in 7 countries and more than 20 thousand employees, FEMSA Logistics is committed to providing quality and road safety to its customers.
FEMSA is a leading company participating in the beverage industry with Coca-Cola FEMSA, the largest franchise bottler of Coca-Cola products in the world; Estrella Azul, one of the leading companies in the dairy segment in Panama; and in the beer industry, through its ownership of the second largest equity stake of Heineken, one of the world's leading brewers with operations in over 70 countries. FEMSA participates in the retail sector with FEMSA Comercio, which operates various small-format chain stores including OXXO; a Fuels Division operating the OXXO GAS service stations chain; and a Health Division that includes pharmacies and related operations. In addition, through FEMSA Negocios Estratégicos, the company offers logistic services, point-of-sales cooling solutions and plastic solutions for FEMSA’s companies and external customers.
