Guanajuato Inland Port planning in-bond facilities for air cargo
Guanajuato Inland Port is planning the construction this year of in-bond facilities to promote goods air cargo from the complex, a project that will allow the companies at the port to expedite goods transportation, according to Guillermo Romero Pacheco, General Director of the Coordinating Bureau to Foster Foreign Tradein Guanajuato, General de la Coordinadora de Fomento al Comercio Exterior (COFOCE).
The facilities will be built this year; construction is about to start and next year bidding will be called for an operator. The task in each airport, together with customs, is building a fiscal route for the cargo to reach the in-bond premises.
Romero spoke about the multiple advantages offered by this site, which will allow 70 companies from this inland port to transport their goods faster and will in turn provide for “a muchquicker investment return” and “cutting-down capital costs”.
The Complex will consist of three warehouses with freight platforms and a cold chamber, handling yard, sidewalks, machinery room, offices, green areas and a maintenance zone, Guanajuato Inland Port informed.
The operation of the complex will generate another link in the logistics chain by facilitating the consolidation of local cargo to be exported as well as the de-consolidation of imported cargo, making it easier for companies in Guanajuato to make foreign trade operations, potentiating regional logistics and providing more tools to SMC’s to reach the international market.
