• The company will be responsible for receiving cargo from suppliers, warehousing, order picking and assembly line material supply at the San José Chiapa plant

BERGÉ has been awarded a new logistics contract for Audi in Mexico, as it continues to grow worldwide, covering operations at the San José Chiapa plant in the state of Puebla, where the renowned automobile manufacturer produces its Q5 model. This provides the company with a prime opportunity to boost its business in the country, seeking to take advantage of its position as strategic partner of the German brand.

This contract will see BERGÉ control a wide range of aspects of plant logistics, including receiving cargo from suppliers, storage in temporary warehouses, physical and system inventory management, picking and sequencing parts to guarantee timely and accurate production line supply, in-plant and near-plant material transport and supply processes, and returning empties to intermediate storage and shipment processing areas.

The relationship between Audi and BERGÉ dates back to 2018, when the latter was chosen to manage inbound logistics at the San José Chiapa plant, consisting of receiving both sea containers and trailers at the facility, as well as taking responsibility for internal storage camps and transporting containers and trailers to the on-site warehouses where components are stored.

Fruit of its continued international expansion, BERGÉ now operates in Mexico and Colombia, in addition to having an extensive presence in Spain, in 27 ports (including Bayonne in France). In addition to automotive logistics, the company handles more than 30 million tonnes of goods each year and is the leading consignment company with almost 10,000 ships per year.
