WWL has recently opened a new processing facility at Audi’s new assembly plant in San Jose Chiapa in Mexico, which is expected to produce 165,000 vehicles in 2017 and become the worldwide sourcing point for its successful Q5 model.
WWL will perform two critical activities in the dispatch of the brand new Audi vehicles: yard management and railcar shunting. For this purpose, around 80 people will be employed, and two 30-ton railcar movers have been leased to pull and push Automax and Bilevel railcars, covering 20 kilometers of tracks.
“We are very proud to win this business,” said Roberto Zavala, Country Manager for WWL Mexico. “With the addition of this site, WWL Mexico gets closer to 1,400 employees and adds a very important customer to its portfolio.”
This is the 9th processing facility WWL operates in Mexico.
