Your Experienced Mexico Shipping Partner

In 1998, PGT strategically developed our location in Laredo, Texas, to support our drivers and customers who have northbound and southbound needs in Mexico. With more than 30 terminals across the U.S., PGT is well-equipped to handle any shipping needs. To accommodate our customers’ growing cross-border shipping demands, PGT will be opening a new Laredo facility in 2024! This custom, state-of-the-art terminal is located less than 13 miles from three of the main bridges at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The PGT Trucking Advantage

Flatbed Trailer Services

[div][strong]Through-Trailer Service [/strong][/div] [div style="margin-top: 10px;"]The trailer loaded at the place of origin is the same trailer making the delivery. By eliminating transloading at the border, PGT minimizes the risks associated with shipment transfers. [/div] [div style="margin-top: 10px;"][strong]Transload Service [/strong] [/div] [div style="margin-top: 10px;"]The shipment loaded at origin will be transferred to an outbound trailer in Laredo TX before continuing its journey to final destination. This method typically reaps additional capacity and can entail storage if delivery windows are flexible or not available. [/div]

Shipping Southbound to Mexico

For customers shipping from the U.S. to Mexico, PGT provides door to door service, minimizing the risks associated with shipment transfers. The flatbed trailer loaded at the place of origin in the United States is the same trailer making the delivery in Mexico. PGT staff is available to our customers 24/7, providing regular shipment updates with real-time equipment tracking.

Shipping Northbound to the United States

When shipping from Mexico to the U.S., your freight is safely hauled on reliable, late model equipment. Our team of B1 drivers can pick up and deliver cargo traveling in the stream of international commerce, eliminating the need to transload or wait for additional drivers at the border. Our commercial alliances in Mexico participate in the CTPAT program, providing an extra layer of cargo security.
