Using a dedicated transportation solution

Private fleet service without the hassles

There is a large supply/demand capacity gap at the U.S. and Mexico border. Many shippers find it difficult to obtain the capacity they need for their southbound freight to Mexico. One way shippers can add resiliency to their cross-border shipping strategy is to utilize a dedicated solution. 

Dedicated freight service is like having a private fleet without all the hassles. With engineering expertise, we can build and maintain a fleet tailored to your unique needs, including specific equipment and freight handling requirements. We also assume responsibilities like liability and risk, equipment investments plus driver hiring and training — so you can focus on running your business.
