Shipping freight out of Mexico is common enough, but when it comes to shipping freight into Mexico, companies without the right connections and expertise often find themselves…
- Struggling to find stable, long-term capacity
- Confused by customs requirements and associated documentation like the pedimento
- Slowed down by the language barrier and a lack of local understanding
- Settling for a large carrier - sacrificing specialized solutions and personalized service

How Do I Ship Freight to Mexico?
Multiple capacity options are available to ship freight into Mexico, with the most prominent being 53' Dry Van. Intermodal is among additional shipping solutions.
Where Can My Shipments Go?
Freight can be delivered door-to-door from a U.S. location to multiple destinations servicing Mexico, including:
- Laredo, TX
- San Luis Potosi
Ideally, this solution fits shippers in the Midwest with at least three shipments per week moving southbound across the border - though other U.S. origins may also be a fit.
What About Transloading or Warehousing?
Beyond door-to-door, cargo can be delivered to Laredo, then transloaded for warehousing or further distribution throughout Mexico. Additional warehousing locations are available in Monterrey, Queretaro and Saltillo.
How Can I Handle Customs Documentation?
A common hesitation for shippers is dealing with customs, including the pedimento form - required by Mexico for imports and exports - as well as worries about the inspection process. For intermodal shipments, UIAA documentation can also be a challenge. With a dedicated customs brokerage in Mexico and the U.S., plus intermodal expertise, InTek can take those burdens away and empower your business.
