Paul Breukel, Allport Netherlands:

"In Mexico, you do business with people, not with companies"

If the greenhouse horticulture is on the rise in a country, logistics freight forwarder Allport Netherlands usually immediately notices this in the number of requests and the quantity of freight. Mexico is one of these countries. To be able to do business as greenhouse constructor or supplier, a lot has to happen, for example in the field of logistics. Culture differences and different custom regulations are things to take into account, according to Paul Breukel, Allport Netherlands, based on his own experience. He recently visited the country for Expo AgroAlimentaria. "Without reliable local partners with the right connections, it is almost impossible to get things done in time."

In Mexico, you do business with people, not with companies. Investing in personal relations is very important. You gain confidence. Particularly the confidence of those in charge is important, because in Mexico they always make the decisions. By taking this into account from the beginning, you will not be surprised, Paul advises. It also helps to speak Spanish and have knowledge of the customs regulations in Mexico. Read more about it here and here.
