SICT announces cargo agreement with Estafeta for AIFA

Mexico City, Mexico — The Secretary of Infrastructure, Communications and Transportation (SICT) led the signing of the Lease Agreement for the Estafeta National Cargo Warehouse at AIFA.

In a statement, the SICT head, Jorge Nuño Lara reported that “with the recent approval of the reform to the Civil Aviation Law, Mexico is getting closer to recovering Category 1 aviation security, so we must be ready to take advantage of the renewed momentum that will register our air transport, both cargo and passengers.”

During the signing of the Lease Agreement for the National Cargo Warehouse of Estafeta Carga Aérea at the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA), Nuño Lara pointed out that this company becomes an example to follow for companies that need to complete their procedures and obtain certifications to migrate its cargo activity from the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) to AIFA.

“Estafeta shows us that no obstacle is insurmountable, that they can be overcome when you want to move forward and reach the goal,” Nuño Lara said.

The head of the SICT commented that both Estafeta and the rest of the cargo companies will have access to better conditions and opportunities to store and transport cargo, since AIFA will consolidate as a global logistics platform by having greater capacity on the fiscal route and operational efficiency on the air and ground side.

In addition, AIFA’s airport rates – landing, parking and overnight – are lower than the average of the country’s airports.

He stated that the leasing contract is an important step in the ascending path of a proudly Mexican company to consolidate itself as a logistics center for shipments and cargo with global quality and capacity.

He added that locating and operating its cargo warehouse at the Felipe Ángeles International Airport gives Estafeta the opportunity to reduce costs by being very close to its new Distribution Center in Cuautitlán Izcalli, State of Mexico, a logistics center capable of operating more than 60,000 shipments per hour.

He said that in addition to the advantages of this strategic location, Estafeta will be able to add value to its operations by taking full advantage of the many advantages that AIFA offers.

At the time, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Estafeta, Jens Grimm, highlighted that the leasing of the Estafeta National Cargo Warehouse at AIFA “is a sign of the solid culture of collaboration and the interest we have as a company in work hand in hand with the authorities in those projects that lead to building a better Mexico.”

“This is an investment of more than 350 million pesos that connects us with more than 60 cities in the country in a few hours,” he added.
