A key provider of steel products to Rheem Industries, company that produces water heaters and air conditioning equipment. Given the importance of this service the decision to establish a distribution center in Nuevo Laredo was reached with the intention to shorten release schedules and response times.

TerniumClA bidding process was launched by TERNIUM at the beginning of the year looking to find the best partner to establish this critical service. Several logistics providers took part on this process where ONILOG was selected as the optimum solution, starting operations on June 15th,, 2012.

ONILOG proved it’s worth immediately when, after signing the contract on June 1st, TERNIUM was faced with a requirement from it’s client where shipments needed to be processed from the Nuevo Laredo center starting on June 15th. Working to meet our clients needs, ONILOG was able to establish a distribution center that could process 10,000 tons of steel a month with up to 20 daily shipments in only 15 days.

ONILOG is committed to be an ally for Ternium, maintaining a high level of performance on a daily basis. As such we have implemented a structure to receive volumes of more than 2,000 tons per week, resulting in approximately 50 in-bound shipments per week.
