May 11 - BNSF Logistics has established a new subsidiary in Mexico - BNSF Railway Servicios de Logistica.

Based in Monterrey and headed up by newly appointed director of Mexico projects and rail services, Gerardo Guarjardo, the new office will offer project logistics and rail services throughout Mexico.

Guarjardo joins the new team with over 20 years' experience in the logistics industry, having previously held the role of market manager for petroleum products, minerals and machinery at BNSF Railway's Mexico subsidiary.

"Monterrey is an ideal location for BNSF Logistics' first expansion into Mexico, as it is Mexico's third largest city and has close proximity to the US border," said BNSF Logistics president Ray Greer.

"The Monterrey region is strategically important to our growth plans in Mexico, and having a local presence is key to developing vendor and client relationships."
