Cross Border Logistics – Mexico

Seamless Door-to-Door Logistics

Getting your freight across the Mexican border is easy and seamless with a cross-border logistics program.

We Are a True Cross-Border Freight Provider

Many potential shoppers are concerned about shipping to and from Mexico. They may question the security of their shipment as it goes between countries. The process for getting products through customs is not straightforward, and if a company is doing it for the first time, it could be fraught with costly delays.

But the reality is cross-border logistics is much easier with the right shipping partner. Sheer Logistics provides a simplified, secure way for domestic shippers to get their freight over the border, to and from any destination in Mexico.

  • Our processes are designed to reduce unnecessary delays, therefore reducing overall cost.
  • We handle all customs on either side of the border.
  • We consult you on all requirements regarding your shipment.
  • We follow up and communicate with all parties.
  • Our bilingual team is based in Laredo, which means we have key personnel exactly where they are needed most.

“A trustworthy relationship is dependent on understanding what success looks like from both sides, which requires being honest about what each company’s agenda looks like and trusting that one side won’t drag the other into a situation that doesn’t fit. There are no hidden agendas.”

Cross-Border Trucking Services Are a Bit More Complicated

Getting freight to and from Mexico is where an experienced logistics partner becomes an invaluable asset, especially if you routinely plan to send shipments across the border. We take 4–5 different contacts and reduce them to a single customer-facing contact. Here’s a step by step look at how shipments get across the border.

Domestic carriers take freight to the border

If there is one misconception that most shippers have about cross-border freight, it is that domestic carriers also take the shipment across the border. The typical domestic carrier doesn’t have the authorization to simply drive a truck of goods through Mexican customs. Instead, most freight ends up at a U.S. border customs clearance warehouse awaiting the next step. If the timing of this is off at all, it could mean long delays at the border and higher shipping costs.

Transportation across the border requires a certified carrier to physically take the shipment over the border and through customs. Once through, a Mexican carrier takes the shipment to its final destination.
