Ryder System, Inc., announced the opening of its brand new logistics facility in Laredo, Texas, which will primarily support cross-border shipments between the US and Mexico.
The new facility adds to Ryder’s growing network of cross-border operations.
Strategically located less than five miles from the World Trade Bridge, the new 109,000 square-foot facility includes 6,400 square feet of office space, 51 dock doors, two ramps, and 114 trailer spaces. The Laredo site will handle thousands of shipments on behalf of 19 customers within the auto, industrial, retail, and high tech industries and it will provide additional services and capacity opportunities to Ryder’s existing and future North American customers.
“Our new facility in Laredo, Texas enables Ryder to continue to support its growing customer base in the US and Mexico with industry-leading cross-border solutions,” said Gene Sevilla, Ryder Vice President of International Supply Chain Solutions. “For over 24 years, Ryder has supported customers on both sides of the US-Mexico border, where we’ve provided an unparalleled transportation infrastructure and distribution services in the midst of some of the most complex cross-border freight movement challenges.”
The new facility also complements Ryder’s newly renovated yard in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, which has capacity for up to 400 trailers.
