Horizon Auto Logistics receives the Mexico Leaders 2017 Award at the Mexico Automotive Leaders Summit

9 September 2017

Overlooking the historic Paseo de la Reforma, with the sounds, hustle and bustle of an exciting city at their feet, Automotive Executives gathered at the St. Regis Mexico to celebrate at the 2017 Mexican Automotive Leaders Awards where individuals were honoured at this prestigious ceremony.

“These awards are reflective of the importance that Mexico holds for the whole Automotive industry. The enthusiasm, creativity and innovation shown by the individuals here tonight are testament to the high standards expected by a quality-driven industry,” said Peter Wooding, CEO of Three6Zero who organised the Awards. “We are proud to have welcomed a truly outstanding group of individuals for our inaugural Mexican Leaders celebrations.”  

Per Folkesson, President of Horizon Auto Logistics says,

Honored to receive this award which is truly on behalf of our entire team in Mexico who with passion and entrepreneurial spirit works hard every day to develop a better automotive supply chain. 

Given the complexity and level of activities within the Automotive business in Mexico, there is a need for an improved and more integrated supply chain concept that Horizon Auto Logistics is now offering the market. Operations commenced in Veracruz in June this year and the company will have 18 hectares of dedicated state-of-the-art automotive facility, including a fully equipped Vehicle Processing Center, ready by beginning of 2018. Another 20 hectares are available for development if required.
