Numerous automotive set manufacturers as well as supplier companies have set up operations in the State of Guanajuato, forming together with counterparts in nearby Aguascalientes, Queretaro, San Luis Potosi and other states in the Central Mexican Plateau (Bajio region) a major industrial cluster, and it is expected that customer demand for warehouse storage of automotive-related parts and materials will climb still further.

This new Center was designed in-house from the drawing board based on NE Mexico's accumulated know-how in automotive-related logistics and then specially constructed to accommodate such logistics, enabling the Center to provide high value-added services coupled to customers' production plans. Consolidating the existing locations at Queretaro and Salamanca should also bring about greater operational efficiency.
