Airports and Auxiliary Services (ASA) in Mexico have launched a strategic plan to take advantage of the increasing trend of nearshoring in the global business landscape.

Airports and Auxiliary Services (ASA) has started a strategic initiative to take advantage of the emerging opportunities presented by nearshoring, a trend gaining momentum in the global business landscape. ASA has initiated a comprehensive study to evaluate the potential impact of nearshoring on the airport sector and transportation infrastructure in Mexico. To lead this initiative, ASA has enlisted the expertise of renowned consulting firms McKinsey & Company, Network Transportation Systems Studies, and Trust Management Sourcing, known for their track record in delivering insightful analyses and strategic guidance across diverse industries.

The invitation extended to these consulting firms underscores ASA's commitment to leveraging best-in-class expertise and insights to inform strategic decision-making and optimize the airport sector's readiness for nearshoring-driven transformations. The study will include a comprehensive analysis of nearshoring trends, market dynamics, and evolving transportation needs, with a forward-looking horizon spanning a decade. The study aims to provide valuable insights into the evolving landscape of airport operations, logistics, and transportation infrastructure in Mexico by delving into the intricacies of nearshoring dynamics and projecting future demand patterns.

Key focus areas of the study include assessing the potential increase in business activity stemming from nearshoring initiatives, identifying emerging logistical requirements, and evaluating the implications for airport capacity, connectivity, and service offerings. Furthermore, the study seeks to delineate strategic imperatives and investment priorities to position Mexico's airports and transportation networks as preferred hubs for nearshoring-related activities, fostering economic growth, job creation, and sustainable development.

Through collaborative engagement with industry stakeholders, government agencies, and academic institutions, the study aims to foster dialogue, generate consensus, and catalyze concerted action towards harnessing the transformative potential of nearshoring. By harnessing the collective expertise of leading consulting firms and embracing a forward-thinking approach to strategic planning, ASA aims to proactively navigate the evolving landscape of global trade dynamics and position Mexico as a premier destination for nearshoring ventures, thereby unlocking new avenues of growth and prosperity for the nation.
