Five Must-Know Tips For Shipping LTL To Mexico

When it comes to U.S. export value, only a handful of other countries can compete against Mexico. In fact, according to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, the country ranked second overall in 2013 with a total export value of $226.2 billion. As you can imagine, there is ample opportunity for American businesses to become involved in international trade and cross-border shipping. Securing customers across the border is only the first step though.

Eventually, businesses have to decide how they will transport their goods across the border or how to optimize a preexisting supply chain for Mexican expansion. Most exporters utilize a mixture of American and Mexican carriers that specialize in cross-border less-than-truckload (LTL) and truckload (TL) services, such as Averitt. Additionally, a few situations may even benefit from the use of U.S.-to-Mexico intermodal (rail), air or ocean services.
