Argentinian Companies look to MVD FA for Regional Distribution


The advantages of Uruguay as a logistics-oriented country have proven to be very attractive for international players looking to consolidate their footprint in the region most efficiently.  Organizations in a number of sectors including pharmaceutical, animal health, high-tech, textiles and e-commerce, have looked at Uruguay and its tax-exempt logistics platforms as a strategic partner for distribution and fiscal purposes.  Given the uncertainty of the global context moving forward, the identification of regional, near shore partners that can provide reliability and ownership has become more critical than ever.

Throughout 2020, several Argentinian organizations have either set foot or commenced exhaustive diligence processes to begin operations in the pharmaceutical, animal health and ecommerce sectors.

“We have received several inquiries from companies looking to optimize their tax strategies, centralize transnational shipments as well as relocate their regional distribution. Many of them are currently assuming the cost of importing and re-exporting product to and from Argentina when this could be held bonded at MVD Free Airport”, said Hans Guiscardo, Senior Manager of Global Accounts at MVD Free Airport.

MVD Free Airport is commencing new operations shortly, the implications of which have led to the acceleration of the completion of phase 2 of its pharmaceutical warehousing master plan.
