Danish integrated logistics company Maersk has launched a new 30,000 square metre warehouse facility in the Tijuana area, targeting cross-border trade.

The company assigned the move to the immense potential of Tijuana as a key player in trade between the US and Mexico.

Located in Prisma XII, Pacifico Industrial Park in Tijuana, Baja California, the site is intended for companies specializing in the technology, automotive, retail, and lifestyle sectors that are looking for cross-border capabilities.

The new facility is positioned near major commercial ports, such as Los Angeles/Long Beach, California and Ensenada, Mexico. It lies 15 km from the Otay Commercial Port, nestled between Otay Mesa (San Diego, United States) and Otay Centenario (Tijuana, Mexico). Additionally, it is 20 km away from the San Ysidro Commercial Port, which spans the border between San Ysidro, California, and Tijuana.

The site is part of the Manufacturing, Maquiladora, and Export Services Industry (IMMEX) services program for the Tijuana market. It offers services such as sorting, storage, cross-docking, inventory management, as well as labelling, packaging, re-packaging, and order fulfilment. Alternatively, it could operate fulfilment or e-fulfilment operations into the United States, leveraging the Section 321 Shipment Type for e-commerce shipments.

The new site is certified LEED Gold, including rooftop solar panels, 100% electric material-handling equipment, LED lighting, heat island reduction, indoor and outdoor water use reduction, and waste management system.

“With a focus on IMMEX program services, inventory control, and seamless cross-border integration, we’re positioned to capitalize on the manufacturing landscape in Mexico and our commitment to delivering unparalleled service to our customers. By strategically leveraging our new warehouse in Tijuana, tailored to the complexities of cross-border trade, we’re better positioned to provide our customers in the region truly integrated logistics solutions,” said Patricia Perez Salazar, Managing Director for Maersk in Mexico.

In recent years, the manufacturing industry in Tijuana has grown considerably, driven by the increasing trend of nearshoring between Mexico and the United States. According to the International Trade Administration, Mexico is the United States’ third largest trading partner, and a significant portion of the trade is generated in the largest metropolitan area between San Diego and Tijuana.

Maersk’s footprint spans over 150,000 square meters across Mexico, with warehouses located in Mexico City, Tijuana, and Cuautitlan, and depots located near the ports in Lazaro Cardenas and Manzanillo. Looking ahead, Maersk plans to expand with additional capabilities in Guadalajara and Monterrey.
