Landstar expands Mexico operations

Landstar has announced the opening of Landstar Metro in Mexico City, as part of its expanded Mexico services.

The new operation provides Mexico freight and logistics services within Mexico and in conjunction with Landstar’s U.S. / Mexico cross-border services at 11 border-crossing points. Landstar Metro is a full-service transportation logistics provider with access to truckload, less-than-truckload and expedite third-party capacity, with the benefits of Landstar’s North American freight transportation network and management services.

Landstar Transportation Logistics Executive Vice President of Operations, Eric Meyer, said, “With Landstar Metro, we have added the final piece – in-country freight management services – to our cross-border and Mexico freight transportation operations. Opening a location in Mexico enables Landstar to more seamlessly serve the needs of our customers throughout North America.”

Landstar has provided Mexico cross-border services for more than 20 years. In January 2017, the company opened its state-of-the-art Landstar U.S./Mexico Logistics Service Center in Laredo, Texas. This 31,000 sq ft logistics facility is on a highly secured, 50-acre C-TPAT certified site that includes a 30-bay cross-dock and transload facility, and a custom-designed 120-ton, stand-alone bridge crane for heavy/specialized freight.
