More than 10,000 orders for delivery of goods spread over 2,800 trips across our country, that’s roughly Solistica’s daily operation as a 3PL (Third Party Logistics) logistics operator.
This operation is now handled by Jessica Ponce de Leon, CEO of Solistica, who, with a decade of experience with the company, became the first woman to lead FEMSA’s Strategic Business Division in Latin America.
Among her key challenges, Jessica Ponce de León has set herself the goal of making Solistica a great differentiator in commodity management across the retail, consumer, and life sciences and healthcare industries.
To get, this year, the logistics operator will invest just over a billion pesos in infrastructure, vehicles and technology; while in Brazil they will develop a platform for their split-load network, along with other strategies to achieve sufficient capacity and meet new market demands in Mexico and Latin America.
As part of this growth, Solistica opened a Multiclient warehouse in Monterrey a few weeks ago that will operate for the northern states of the country and on the border with the United States. It has a picking and delivery capacity of 250 boxes per hour. The annual installed capacity for an extended shift for picking and shipping is 7.5 million pieces.
Supply chains continue to transform
Jessica Ponce de León added that this investment will also focus on three important strategic pillars: customer service, our people, and innovation and digital transformation.
And in the process, they will be able to grow rapidly, as FEMSA is committed to being a preferred 3PL partner that understands that supply chains continue to transform.
“In the region and globally, we currently have major disruptions in supply chains, and one of the big challenges as logistics operators is to act at the speed that these disruptions require”, a- he declared.
For Solistica CEO Jessica Ponce de León, the pandemic has radically transformed supply chains and, in many cases, broken them.
“It’s not over and it won’t end, the impacts have been strong in changing delivery cycles and demands. From my point of view, Supply Chains will never go back to what they were before, logistics operators must be prepared to be nimble and flexible,” he stressed.
