Sunset expands cross-border operations in Laredo, TX
Sunset continues to expand cross-border and customs brokerage services across key transportation corridors between Texas and Mexico.
Sunset Transportation, a Top 10, 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. Significant and consistent growth allowed operations to expand in 2021 and again in 2023.
Sunset Laredo offers a full suite of US/MX cross-border customs brokerage and logistics management services, including a secure, 185,000 square ft. CTPAT-compliant and food grade-certified warehouse constructed in 2022. The location provides a competitive advantage for both drivers and customers through:
- Easy, safe access to major trucking routes and Port of Laredo
- Full control and visibility to north and southbound shipments without outsourcing US and MX customs clearance
- CTPAT and OSHA compliance
- 77 dock doors
- 200 truck yard spaces
- 24/7 yard receiving hours
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 also brings 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.
“We are thrilled to expand operations again with the new warehouse, which continues to address the trends we’ve been seeing on the border,“ says Jose Minarro, Managing Director. “With a larger warehouse and easier access for drivers, we can offer better visibility to northbound and southbound shipments and eliminate the strain of what is usually a complex Customs process. With the addition of the new warehouse, the Laredo team is actively addressing the numerous challenges facing cross-border logistics.“
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 eighth branch in Queretaro, MX. In 2020, Sunset’s corporate headquarters moved to a fully renovated 45,000 sq. ft office in their hometown of Sunset Hills, Missouri (St. Louis). The company has continued its focus on business intelligence reporting and tracking visibility through centralized shipper platform, LOGIK, for all domestic and international modes.
