Everything is bigger in Texas. Now R+L can say that the Laredo service center is bigger too! Laredo, Texas is located on the Southwest border of Texas and Mexico. The town settled in 1755 is now a major trade port between the US and our southern neighbor. With more than 250,000 residents Laredo is the center of Mexican trade activity in Texas. Almost 50 percent of all American imports from Mexico and more than a 1/3 of American exports moving to Mexico cross the border at Laredo.
Shipping Service to Mexico
For R+L Carriers, and specifically our partners at R+L Truckload and R+L Global Logistics, the team and facility in Laredo has been key to a long tradition of superior freight service to and from Mexico. Recently our Laredo facility underwent a major upgrade and expansion. The expansion prepares the site for increased staff and capacity in our Mexico logistics service offerings.
Monica Garcia, Senior Account Executive, Mexico Services for R+L Global Logistics:
With facility and infrastructure improvements, R+L Global Logistics can continue to focus on its growth. Our goal is to grow the local Laredo professional team in 2015 by an additional 10-15 employees.
Debra Hernandez, R+L Truckload Training Coordinator had this to say recently in regards to professional staffing of the expanded space:
We’re looking for the best and brightest candidates who fit our company culture. We are excited to speak with up and coming business professionals who are eager to start their careers.
