Online giant to expand its distribution network in Mexico


Amazon is looking to take advantage of Mexico’s growing e-commerce industry.

The online giant is planning to open a 1 million sq. ft. warehouse near Mexico City, according to Reuters. Scheduled to open next year, it would be the company’s third distribution center in the country.

The new warehouse will reside in the Tepotzotlan municipality, about 25 miles north of the Mexican capital. The facility would triple Amazon’s distribution space in the country, and help it service approximately 120 million potential customers, the report said.

Amazon’s Mexico push comes amid talks to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement, which could benefit the Seattle-based retailer if the United States persuades Mexico to raise a $50 limit on the value of online purchases that can be imported duty-free, according to Reuters.
