MEXICO SERVICE ENHANCEMENTS
Warren, Michigan, February 5, 2016
- Central Transport, LLC, one of the nation’s most technologically advanced less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers announces enhancements to Mexico service.
The Company is pleased to report their presence in Mexico continues to grow and expand. During the last week of January, Central Transport leadership met with Mexico Customs brokers to finalize negotiations on continued service expansion. Currently, shipments consigned to Mexico are delivered to the customs broker and once the paperwork is completed, the freight is then transferred back to a partner carrier in Mexico for final delivery.
Under the new system, the broker will now process and complete all necessary paperwork while at the dock (without delivering the freight to customs broker), thus providing a full door-to-door experience to the customer. While the change may seem like a small one, the results are massive. Upon commencement in the next few weeks, Central Transport will be the only LTL carrier with the ability to provide such a service in-house. This new system dramatically reduces the handling of each shipment and can also increase service speed provided proper and correct documentation is tendered upon pickup. Accordingly, because the freight no longer has to leave the warehouse, tracking and tracing visibility of each shipment is maintained throughout the entire shipment transit.
Further growth and progress in 2016 is planned and includes providing this service at all six of the United States/Mexico border cities.
