Yusen Logistics (Americas) Inc., Secaucus, N.J., secured a second warehouse in Laredo, Texas, to support the growing demand for import and export logistics services to and from Mexico.
By expanding its cross-border operations, Yusen Logistics can offer shippers increased warehouse capacity. The 43,000-square-foot facility is located approximately 3.5 miles from the company’s main campus. Between the two locations, Yusen Logistics now offers more than 150,000 square feet of warehouse space in the Laredo area.
"Yusen Logistics continues to think big and invest in this growing cross-border economy,” says Ben Escarcega, director, integrated solutions group (ISG). “With more than 12,000 trucks crossing through Laredo every day, the opportunities are immense, and with a second warehouse, we are positioning ourselves to increase our market share with a focus on the automotive logistics sector."
The new warehouse features a 26-foot clear ceiling height, with 15 dock doors and 30 trailer parking positions. Services include warehouse distribution, U.S. customs brokerage, intermodal and OTR transportation and trailer parking spot leasing. There is also a Mexico customs broker on site.
