Showcasing Sunset’s latest cross-border service offering, and newest branch office now open in Laredo, Texas, Managing Director Jose Minarro was interviewed by the popular Mexican logistics publication, Estrategia Aduanera (Customs Strategy) in the August 2019 edition.

Question from ES:  Does Sunset have strategic alliances?

Answer from Jose Minarro: 

We have alliances with distribution and customs brokers nationwide, as well as a network of freight forwarders in Asia and Europe that enable us to provide ocean and air freight solutions.

In the United States, we have a network of agents who work with Sunset outside of the branch network, allowing us to secure even more capacity nationwide.

Spanish Translation: 
Contamos con alianzas con empresas almacenadoras y de servicios de agencia aduanal a nivel nacional en México. Así como también una red de freight forwarders en Asia y Europa que nos permiten ofrecer servicios de carga aérea y marítima.
