What can shippers do to mitigate ongoing cross-border capacity crunches?


Sunset’s Cross-border Managing Director, Jose Minarro, welcomes us into the (full) Sunset warehouse in Laredo, Texas to talk shipper options for the ongoing capacity crunch in the March edition of #SunsetSays.


Summary:

Warehousing in the U.S. is at full capacity and Laredo facilities are feeling the pressure at 98% capacity. Freight that historically would have bypassed Laredo is now being held at the borders awaiting available trucks. We, unfortunately, do not see any immediate resolutions to the cross-border capacity issues this year. However, there are partners like Sunset here to help.

If you have questions about how these trends may affect your customs and cross-border shipments, please contact LaredoBranch@SunsetTrans.com or speak with your Sunset representative for best mitigation practices.
