CAPS Offers Container Rental Solutions to Mexican Market

November 29, 2010
Container and Pooling Solutions (CAPS) will now offer container rental solutions to Mexican markets. The ongoing growth trend in intra-Mexico commerce and U.S. sourcing to Mexican-based suppliers has prompted CAPS to invest in the region to support its increasing number of customers.

Since 1998, CAPS has been providing container rental and container tracking solutions for customers in the food, beverage, non-hazardous chemical, general manufacturing, and automotive markets. As North America’s leading provider of container management services, the company has primarily serviced customers in Mexico and Canada with its U.S.-based team of packaging consultants and operations personnel.

“We have a successful history of working with our existing customers in Mexico, and over the past couple of years have consistently seen an increase in the volume of requests for our services in this area,” explains Robert Wiedmaier, CAPS’ CEO. “By dedicating full time resources to the region, we are better able to qualify and quantify packaging and supply chain requirements in order to provide a more targeted and cost-effective container management solution.”

With its diverse client base, CAPS has existing service centers strategically located along the border to provide efficient services, including repositioning and container cleaning, repair and tracking. The experienced teams at these facilities regularly work with clients in both the U.S. and Mexico and are familiar with the requirements for servicing these customers.

“We are excited to leverage over a decade of business-to-business container rental and management experience with the Mexican industrial community,” explains Drew Merrill, CAPS VP of business development and strategic planning. “Our Queretaro-based team is led by a 30-year packaging veteran with a strong background in developing liquid and dry bulk container solutions. We look forward to improving our service and response time with our existing customers and offering a broader range of products and services to future prospects.” 

CAPS’ growth into this new market will support customers shipping product internally throughout Mexico, as well as internationally between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. To learn more about CAPS’ container rental and management solutions, visit www.UseCAPS.mx or www.UseCAPS.com.
