GUIDE FOR MOVING US/MEXICO LOADS

 

Some of the most difficult, confusing, and time-consuming loads you can handle are the ones going into or out of Mexico. 

 

You have the language barriers, the regulatory barriers, the customs barriers, and the cultural barriers.  It can be daunting for those who have little or no experience.  

 

So, we've decided to help you out with a quick process guide for moving both Northbound and Southbound loads. 

 

Along with the processes below, we've included key terms, along with a few helpful links, including a calendar of US/Mexico holidays, and current wait times at all trade bridge crossings. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SOUTHBOUND PROCESS

 

  • The US carrier delivers to the consignee in Laredo, TX. This is typically a trucking company yard, trans-loading/cross-docking facility, freight forwarder, or customs broker. 

 

  • The load is then transloaded (if not thru trailer service) from the US carrier’s trailer to the Mexican carrier’s trailer. 

 

  • The local delivery carrier transports the Mexican trailer to the customs broker’s yard.

 

  • Once the customs paperwork is ready, then the trailer is ready to transfer across the bridge. The transfer carrier takes the trailer across the bridge to the Mexican carrier’s yard in Nuevo Laredo. 

 

  • The trailer hits the Mexico carrier’s yard in Nuevo Laredo and is then dispatched (typically within 24 hours).

 

​​

 

NORTHBOUND SHIPMENTS

 

  • Mexican trucking company delivers loads to its yard in Nuevo Laredo and checks in with Mexican customs broker.

 

  • Once the customs paperwork is finished the freight broker contacts the Mexican carrier to send a messenger to pick up the “DODA” for crossing.

 

  • Mexican crossing company transports the trailer (typically within 24 hours) to the shipping destination in Laredo.

 

  • Freight broker sets up a US carrier to arrive for pickup when the trailer crosses into Laredo.

 

  • US driver arrives, the load is trans-loaded onto the US trailer (or drop and hook for thru trailer service) and the driver leaves the Laredo for US cosignee.
