Frontier: infrastructure developer with logistics experience25/04/2023
Logistics is gaining importance and evolving into a crucial industrial activity worldwide, and Mexico, as one of the most important Latin American markets, is included in this trend. For retailers, logistics is key to satisfying customers’ needs and retaining clients. For industrial warehouse developers, logistics represents an opportunity to offer their services to various big companies, which is currently Frontier Industrial’s goal.
By selling industrial land and developing industrial buildings for lease in Mexico, and working with big enterprises such as Amazon in Merida, Yucatan, we are capable of developing important projects related to logistics activities for companies looking to profit from nearshoring to Mexico.
Gaining knowledge of logistics dynamics
Developing projects for Amazon and other clients in various locations in Mexico has allowed us to affirm that we have the experience needed to work on any logistics building that an enterprise may require and to meet specifications succesfully. For this, it’s important to understand the business dynamics and the different needs of each type of building.
Warehouses and distribution centers are different
It’s possible to think that there is no difference between logistics buildings. Still, some needs and specifications go beyond “big logistic platforms” when talking about large buildings of 25,000 m2 or more, which are located far from cities and highly automated; “cross-docking buildings, for fast movement of merchandise and located near cities,” and “last mile buildings, the last point between stores and customers.”

Amazon: a demonstration of success
Frontier Industrial has successfully developed a distribution center for Amazon on a 78,741 m2 plot of land with two access points from the federal way 261 in Merida-Progreso. This industrial park is now the closest one to Merida International Airport.
The main building, a Class A structure explicitly designed for the e-commerce company, spans 19,200 m2 and includes the following features:
E-commerce and logistics require different types of buildings to meet customer needs and ensure faster product deliveries. By understanding the dynamics of each structure, we have developed projects tailored to the exact requirements of clients such as Amazon and Liverpool, both in logistics, with installations in Guanajuato and Yucatan, the first one, and the State of Mexico for the second one.
Frontier Industrial offers industrial land for sale and industrial buildings for rent in Mexico’s main industrial locations to support and enhance industrial activities in the country. We also specialize in Build-to-Suit projects, and we can assist enterprises interested in taking advantage of nearshoring to Mexico by helping them establish their manufacturing centers.
