Third of our lives is spent at work. We continue to try to have a very engaged, open and inviting place to work where associates can continue to get better, take ownership of their work, continue to grow and improve their skills with a good work-life balance. To keep the workforce engage and attach with each other, it’s important that as individuals and as a team, we learn to manage our emotions and help others manage theirs. Ohio team went through an “Emotional Intelligence” training today to make us all better in this regards.

MES Inc. has been successfully serving clients in Mexico for over 5 years but is constantly trying to understand better the Mexican economic reality, the struggles that our potential clients are facing in terms of price, quality and lead times and how they could benefit from the products and services we offer.

Our Mexican team has visited last week the Port of Lazaro Cardenas to witness the infrastructure metamorphosis of the port which is expanding is size, capacity and security due to a massive investment program in the maritime commercial operations. The volume of imports through the Mexican ports has increased exponentially due to NAFTA and the related boom in manufacturing in Mexico. In particular, the development of the automotive cluster in the center of the country, benefited Lazaro Cardenas and propelled it at the top of commercial ports in Mexico. Honda, Toyota, Ford and GMC use this port to move an impressive number of vehicles […]

We took a step back to look at the intricacies of the global trade agreements, the trade indicators such as tariffs, number of days and documents needed to import and export, container costs, rules of origin compared to NAFTA, trade surplus and deficits of the 12 countries involved etc. The analysis emphasized the position of the United States, identifies winners and losers and draws conclusions on what we can expect moving forward. Surprisingly, it also shows that China might not be as disadvantaged as it was originally thought from its absence from the negotiation […]
