Transportation and fleet management solutions company Ryder System has announced the opening of a second logistics facility to Mexico logistics routes.

Based in El Paso, Texas near the Ysleta Port of Entry, the largest commercial port in the El Paso district and a critical trade corridor for northbound goods out of Juarez, Mexico, the facility is designed to support the growth in nearshoring activity in Mexico in recent years.

The Ryder El Paso cross border facility has the strategic advantage of being located along a popular stopping point for trucks

The new 50,000sq.ft (4,645sq.m) facility is fewer than five miles (8 km) from the US-Mexico border and fewer than 15 miles from the airport, with easy interstate access in all directions. It providers cross-dock services as well as storage, 24/7 yard operations and value-added services, with room for 350 trailers and all-access CCTV.

Frank Bateman, vice-president of supply chain operations at Ryder said: “The site in El Paso has the advantage of being strategically located along a popular stopping point for trucks, not only heading north and south across the border but for domestic loads heading east and west along I-10.”

In February, Ryder announced the opening of a 228,000sq.ft warehouse and crossdock in Laredo, based just three miles from the World Trade Bridge, and expansion of its drayage yard in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, which facilitates the transfer of freight across the border to U.S. drivers.

Steve Sensing, president of supply chain and dedicated transportation solutions for Ryder said: “We’ve been building our cross-border capabilities in Mexico for nearly three decades. It takes years to develop relationships in manufacturing and with Mexican carriers, as well as customs and compliance expertise to ensure faster, more secure border crossings.”
