The world is changing. A rising number of consumers want goods delivered straight to their door for the sake of convenience, health, and safety. It’s important that e-commerce fulfillment centers are prepared to meet this rising demand in a cost-effective way. Through customizable logistics solutions, e-commerce businesses benefit from competitive rates, efficient delivery times, and consistent quality by moving their operations to Mexico.
Through the U.S. Section 321 Program, U.S. companies can ship finished goods from China or other foreign countries to Mexico before exporting to the U.S. to save on warehouse facility and labor costs and ship approved products with a retail sales value of $800 or less to the U.S. tax-free.
Working with a 3PL logistics company helps to expedite operational setup. Our sister company, Iron Logistics, already has the warehouses, permits, and workforce in place to create a customized solution for inventory and shipping needs for companies transporting medium- to high-volume goods, such as electronics, furniture, and other consumer goods and luxury products.
Another option for creating an e-commerce fulfillment center business model is working with a shelter services company. With legal, accounting, HR, and customs representatives already in place, as well as permits required as part of the IMMEX maquiladora program, shelter services help U.S. companies start and maintain logistics efficiently and effectively.
Companies with e-commerce fulfillment centers must be ready to adapt to quickly changing government mandates and consumer needs. Shifting warehousing and supply chain needs to Mexico is beneficial on several levels. It provides a closer proximity than China, while saving on costs, and benefiting from North American trade deals.
U.S. businesses can place their confidence in our history of excellence and customer satisfaction with inventory accuracy, fill rates, and on-time delivery when working with medium- to large-size inventory. Working with a 3PL logistics or shelter services company in Mexico that’s already familiar with the process can help the transition go more smoothly.
Following a massive earthquake in Baja California that knocked out infrastructure and shut down many businesses, the IVEMSA customs department team met to find a solution for a client that needed to get a crucial shipment across the border the next day. IVEMSA was the only company that used U.S. customs services that day and avoided delays and service interruptions.Read Case Study >
