Globally Competitive Low Cost Manufacturing
Ambos Nogales is becoming the center of an aggressive “near shoring” campaign. Many multinational companies are rediscovering the logistics and labor benefits of being located next door to their largest market. Protection of intellectual property rights and accessibility to corporate engineers are additional advantages of being located in Northern Mexico.
Miles of Commercial Warehousing
To facilitate both north and south bound trade through the Mariposa Port, Santa Cruz County houses numerous warehouse and cold-storage facilities designed to facilitate both north and south bound trade through the Mariposa Port. Many of the established distributors in Nogales offer in-and-out services as well as FTZ services for those looking for those services but not yet ready to purchase or build their own warehouse. In addition to the hundreds of thousands of feet of already existing cold storage and dry warehouse space, Nogales has several locations which are “shovel ready” and available to be built to any prospective user’s needs.
Long-established International Trade Relationships
The Nogales/ Santa Cruz County business community has a long-established, excellent working relationship with the Customs Border Protection (CBP) and other agencies. There is substantial specialized talent to help with logistics and support for cross border trade. Specialty service providers have experience working both sides of the international border, with expertise in business consulting, financial and legal services, customs and trucking brokerages, etc. These established trade relationships translate into the most expedient crossings possible at the Mariposa Port of Entry.
