FedEx Freight is expanding in Mexico, adding terminals in Toluca, Puebla and Veracruz through its alliance with Mexican carrier Auto Lineas America.
The U.S. trucking arm of FedEx now has access to 15 terminals across Mexico handling cross-border and intra-Mexico less-than-truckload freight.
Surface trade with Mexico was up 16.6 percent year-over-year in May and 6.5 percent from April, according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics.
The three-terminal expansion in August cut transit times by an average of 50 percent for customers shipping to southeastern Mexico, FedEx Freight said.
FedEx Freight’s Mexican partner Auto Lineas America is a subsidiary of Grupo Transportes Monterrey that provides truckload, dedicated and LTL service.
