Dimerco's strategic partner in Mexico has been honoured with the National Logistics Award 2019 in the 3PL/4PL logistics services provider category. The award was presented by the Ministry of Economy and the Ministry of Communications and Transportation of Mexico to recognise outstanding logistics services companies that demonstrate best practice in the supply chain and promote the development of Mexican logistics. The major international project that secured this award was the installation of the Villanueva Solar Park, which has 2,000,300 solar panels and generates clean renewable energy for the people of Mexico. The second-largest photovoltaic installation in the world and the largest in Latin America, the installation required Dimerco and its strategic partner to collaborate on logistics and materials delivery from multiple international ports to Coahuila, Mexico. The project, which involved shipping and delivering 26,000 steel brackets in more than 2,000 40-ft containers, demonstrated the capabilities of Dimerco and its strategic partner as leading partners in the supply chain, delivering integral door-to-door solutions with seamless on-time logistics. Dimerco and its partner generated significant savings for the customer on each container handled, while also being mindful of environmental impacts and planning the logistics to reduce CO2 emissions during transportation from start to final delivery. According to Julianne Bryant, project manager of Dimerco Express (USA) Corp., this project required extensive knowledge, detailed logistics and door-to-door transport capacity and strategic planning. "This important project enabled Dimerco and its strategic partner to prove capability and logistical knowledge of both China and Mexico," she says. "We managed this by choosing the best port of destination and the correct mode of transport for last-mile delivery between rail and truck. We even had to build a safe road with our local carrier and authorities to haul containers to the project site."
