Yusen Logistics Expands U.S./Mexico Cross Border Services

Yusen Logistics has access to tens of thousands of trucks and containers, ensuring capacity and service on both sides of the border.

Yusen Logistics is expanding its U.S./Mexico cross-border solutions to address the growing need for reliable logistics services to and from Mexico.

The company’s Mexico Border Cargo Management (BCM) solutions offer shippers a variety of multi-modal cross-border solutions that can be tailored to specific customer requirements. The solutions include an over-the-road (OTR) option, as well as combinations of truck and rail services.

Leveraging its strong relationships with reliable rail, truck and dray carriers throughout the U.S. and Mexico, Yusen Logistics has access to tens of thousands of trucks and containers, ensuring capacity and service on both sides of the border.

“The leverage we have from our global purchasing power allows us to offer committed capacity solutions to our customers,” says Jordan Dewart, vice president, Yusen Logistics Mexico. “Our one-stop solution can accommodate all of our customer’s cross-border shipping needs.”

Yusen Logistics’ BCM service gives U.S. customers multiple cross-border shipping options, including:

Over-the-Road: Shipment is trucked from origin in the U.S./Canada to final destination in Mexico;
Border Direct: Shipment goes by rail intermodal to Laredo and then is trucked to the final destination in Mexico;
Mexico Direct: Shipment is moved by rail intermodal from the U.S. to the destination ramp in Mexico, and then is trucked to the final destination.

In addition, Yusen Logistics has operations in both the U.S. and Mexico, including a 100,000-square-foot warehouse in Laredo, TX, which is close to the Mexico border, and offices in Mexico City, Monterrey and Celaya. The Laredo facility is C-TPAT certified and FTZ and customs bonded.

“Our ability to inspect cargo and clear customs in-house at our Laredo campus helps us to orchestrate the flow of goods from pick up through border crossing and on to final destination,” says Dewart. “In addition, our offices are located close to the most important commercial and manufacturing areas in Mexico.”

For information about the Mexico cross-border process, Yusen Logistics has released a white paper, Mexico Shipments Made Simple, which can be downloaded here.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
