In the second week of the contingency phase 2 in Mexico, we got the best alternative to serve a large Tier 1 automotive.
In week 14 of 2020, the production lines of the automotive sector were still working; however, one of our major automotive customers already needed the support of our logistics experts to ensure that their goods arrived safely and on time and at their plant.
Working hard to meet the critical cargo needs of one of the global leaders in automotive security, we managed to organize 25 national on-board courier (OBC) movements in three weeks, from Tijuana (extreme west of northern Mexico) to its plant in Matamoros (eastern extreme of the north of the country).
The mission was to transport a total of 255 boxes of essential material that needed to be delivered directly into the production lines.
Stress? Never with our OBCs!
Spoilers: All shipments were successful, with the goods collected and delivered on time at our client’s door.
Our critical cargo team’s expertise ensured that all operations underwent smoothly, despite the contingency conditions of COVID-19.
Many air routes had already been canceled and, thus, flight frequencies had decreased as preventive measures to reduce the spread of the virus.
During the operations, some flights were canceled, and we had to alter the original itinerary. Nevertheless, our team’s immediate capacity of reaction, and their experience in designing and activating alternate plans, contributed to achieving our client’s objective of avoiding the disruption of the production line, sending the finished product to be delivered on time.
Always pursuing the best teamwork
Aeromexico, Volaris and VivaAerobus have been, so far, the Mexican airlines with the highest frequency of flights during the contingency. They enabled us to design the Tijuana – Mexico – Monterrey and Reynosa logistics.
Organizing a total of 30 couriers and counting on a great teamwork with our specialized carriers in the area, our critical cargo got to its destiny in excellent conditions!
