Open for business

Mexico has emerged as one of the world’s top 15 manufacturing economies

Mexico is one of the world’s largest open economies, and the Maersk Group enables trade that drives economic growth and job opportunity. Damco helps Guadalajara’s technology hub ensure smooth flow of imports and exports. Maersk Line partners with Monterrey’s carmakers to bring in thousands of containers with parts for the state-of-the-art production lines. Also, APM Terminals has built the most technologically advanced container in Lázaro Cárdenas to keep up with growing volumes. Just to name a few.

A small piece of Denmark in Mexico

Mexico’s President and Denmark’s Prime Minister joined Group CEO Søren Skou at the inauguration of Lázaro Cárdenas port April 4, 2017. It is Latin America’s first semi-automated port and a sign of A.P. Moller - Maersk’s commitment to Mexico.

Latin America’s most advanced container terminal is officially. From the top of its cranes, operator Rodolfo Rumbo Sanchez explains his role and how important the development is for his home city, Mexico’s Lázaro Cárdenas.

It's Mexico's moment right now

Mexico has become a manufacturing titan and lesser-known areas of the country such as Guadalajara’s technology hub are driving the economy. Trade and globalisation are key ingredients to the nation’s secret recipe as it seeks to take the next step up.

Zero tolerance in Mexico

Working with authorities, Maersk Line has been able to eliminate facilitation payments at the port in Lázaro Cárdenas in Mexico. According to Mario Veraldo, Managing Director of Maersk Line’s Middle America Cluster: "This is something that tampers with the country's reputation, but also it is just bad for business," he says. "It is something that we'll fight hard against."
