The development of the Mexican logistics industry in the last 5 years is amazing, accounting more than $4 trillion for both export and import of merchandise. The growth rate of some ports displays a literally giant step from 2017 to 2018. Official figures indicate an air freight growth of 42% on export for Chihuahua and 49% on import for Monterrey. Sea freight grew by 30% export in Cd. Del Carmen and 24% import in Coatzacoalcos. While road traditionally is still the by far dominating way of transportation with an overall amount of more than $2.2 trillion in 5 years, the numbers of air and sea ports altogether add up to the impressive sum exceeding $1.3 trillion in the same period of time.

What do the figures of logistics development imply?

The question arising is not; will this trend go on in the next years? We know the answer here, because Mexico is a prosperous and growing country with perfect conditions for further development. The question really is, does your supply chain software meet the resulting requirements and will it keep pace with further development?

Put your current supply chain software through its paces

To answer the question, just ask yourself, if your current software provides e-rates, e-invoicing, e-AWB, e-B/L, e-mail and all the other “e-” features which cope with the current need for continuous data flow? If so, does it deliver the "e” automatically or do you need extra tools and have to change systems forth and back to get the desired results? Do you have to take deviations and delay into account instead of connecting automatically to external ERP/WMS for unrestricted collaboration?
