Growth on the border as Sunset relocates and expands Laredo, TX operations
Sunset continues to expand cross-border and customs brokerage services across key transportation corridors between Texas and Mexico.
Sunset Transportation, a Top 10, women-owned third-party logistics company headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, is proud to announce a new location and expanded warehouse space in Laredo, Texas. Sunset opened its first cross-border branch office in Laredo in 2019, where recent growth has allowed Sunset to expand operations significantly even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sunset Laredo offers a full suite of US/MX cross-border customs brokerage and logistics management services, including a secure, 120,000 square ft. CTPAT-compliant and food grade-certified warehouse constructed in 2021. The location provides a competitive advantage for drivers and customers; easy, safe access to major trucking routes and Port of Laredo plus full control and visibility to north and southbound shipments without outsourcing US and MX customs clearance.
Sunset Laredo fills a direct need for a seamless US/MX border experience with complete visibility into duty and tax costs. Other capabilities: multi-modal brokerage, cross-docking, consolidation, in-transit bonds, ISF, duty drawback programs, US/MX and EEI declarations, and a robust shipper technology platform to track past, in-transit, and post-shipment KPIs.
FAMILIAR EXPERTISE, SUPERIOR SERVICE
The office is led by MX Customs and logistics expert Jose Minarro as Managing Director and Daniel Treviño as Operations Manager for day-to-day customer operations. Alejandro Pascal is a recent addition bringing several years of cross-border experience as Senior Account Manager for business development and customer relations in Laredo, TX and Queretaro, MX. The office is currently hiring.
Laredo’s business focus lies in the Bajio, Monterrey and Mexico City regions, capitalizing on the high presence of industrial and manufacturing customers in those locations.
“The new warehouse is very exciting and points to the trends we’re seeing on the border,” says Jose Minarro, Managing Director. “With a larger warehouse and easier access for drivers, the Laredo team is actively addressing the numerous challenges facing cross-border logistics. We can offer better visibility to northbound and southbound shipments and take the strain off what is usually a very complex Customs process. Our larger warehouse helps accommodate from a single cross dock to any distribution value added service required.“
Sunset Transportation announces the opening of the expanded location as part of a continued strategy of growth in key logistics markets, providing even greater supply chain solutions and strategies for current and future customers. In April 2021, Sunset opened its ninth branch in Queretaro, MX. In 2020, Sunset’s corporate headquarters moved to a fully renovated 45,000 sq. ft headquarters office in their hometown of Sunset Hills, Missouri (St. Louis) and became a nationally-certified Women-Owned Business Enterprise with CEO Lindsey Graves at the helm. The company has continued its focus on business intelligence reporting and tracking visibility with the release of a centralized shipper platform for load visibility, LOGIK, for all domestic and international modes.
Sunset’s Laredo office is located at 14206 Mercury Drive, Laredo, TX 78045 and can be reached at 956-267-1599.
