Our partnerships with the best FTL trucking companies in Mexico, USA & Canada, place us among the most reliable and economical freight forwarders to help you move your commercial goods throughout North America.
There are three main reasons why shippers choose Full Truckload (FTL) over LTL (Less than Truckload) :
● When the cargo being shipped occupies an entire trailer (53-foot trailer or 48-foot trailer)
Under this scenario, your only option is FTL ground service. Furthermore, if the cargo exceeds half the trailer space without filling it completely, FTL is the better choice, unless there is a low-cost LTL service available.
● When the shipment is urgent.
Full Truckload (FTL) ground service guarantees you a fast transit time by traveling directly from the pickup point to the delivery point without any delays. This is what is known as a dedicated truck service.
● To minimize the risk of cargo loss or damage
It is of extreme importance to avoid cargo damage or loss when shipping valuable merchandise. The Full Truck Load (FTL) option is the most practical choice since the cargo is only handled twice, during the loading and unloading stages. This minimizes your risk of goods being damaged or lost during transit.
Full Truckload shipping to or from Mexico by ground can become very complex when your freight forwarder does not have the required experience.
During the border crossing stage, your cargo will be handed over to the carrier’s counterpart in the destination country. Any wrong handling at this point can cause unnecessary delays and financial losses. Therefore, selecting a Mexico-USA cross-border transportation expert is extremely important.
When it comes to door-to-door shipping to Mexico, the USA, and Canada, Latin American Cargo (LAC) has the experience and know-how to coordinate the process and ensure your cargo moves smoothly and safely.
When shipping FTL to Mexico or from Mexico, we offer two different services:
● Direct Service without Transloading:
For some clients, preventing the risk of damage is of the utmost importance. As such, this method of shipping means that the trailer that is loaded at the point of origin is the same trailer that arrives at the destination. Lack of handling minimizes the risk of damage, especially for cargo that is sensitive to unnecessary handling.
● Service with Transloading:
Using this method, the cargo is loaded onto a Canadian or American trailer for transport to Mexico. Once the cargo reaches the USA-Mexico border, it is then transloaded onto a Mexican trailer. The main advantage of transloading your freight is that we can offer more pickup alternatives as there are not as many FTL carriers that go all the way into Mexico.
All our first-class carriers are C-TPAT certified and equipped with the latest technology to track and trace your shipments in real-time. We understand how important it is to know the status of your cargo every step of the way.
Monitoring your shipments and keeping you informed regularly is our top priority.
Your cargo may require transportation in a temperature-controlled environment for which our company offers FTL “reefer” shipping services. Precise and detailed supervision is essential when shipping perishable and fresh products such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, or temperature-sensitive medical and pharmaceutical products.
Our partnerships with the best reefer trucking companies allow us to offer safe, secure, and efficient refrigerated FTL services throughout Mexico, the USA & Canada.
