DHL launches new LTL cross-border transportation service

The forwarder has launched its Trans Border Connect less-than-truckload (LTL) service between the United States and Mexico.

   DHL Global Forwarding has launched its Trans Border Connect less-than-truckload (LTL) service between the United States and Mexico.
   The Trans Border Connect less-than-truckload (LTL) service is a bundled solution that offers a single quote for pickup transport, line-haul transport, border crossing, cross-dock, border clearances and delivery components, U.S. and Mexico customs border brokerage and expertise, DHL said in a statement. Duties, taxes and other governmental agency fees are an additional charge if applicable.
   The service is being offered between five cities in the United States – Atlanta, Ga.; Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas; Detroit, Mich.; Los Angeles, Calif.; and Chicago, Ill. – and five cities in Mexico – Guadalajara, Mexico City, Monterey, Queretaro and San Luis Potosi. All border crossings will take place in Laredo, Texas.
   The automotive, engineering, manufacturing and aerospace industries currently utilize the Trans Border Connect service, among others. However, the service is not designed for hazardous materials, textiles, toys, finished electronic items, personal goods, shoes, garments, pharmaceuticals and art work.
   With the implementation of the Trans Border Connect service, the company acts as a single-source provider for door-to-door surface moves, offering coverage on regular routes with an all-in flat fee per pound.
   “Our new service offers customers who already do business in Mexico, or want to break into this market, the opportunity to have their goods picked up any day of the week via this new road freight solution,” DHL Global Forwarding, U.S.’s Vice President of Sales Tim Robertson said in a statement. “With Trans Border Connect, DHL offers lower supply chain costs and simplifies billing, as well as end to end shipment visibility and provides a single point of contact monitored by experts in its centralized control tower in Laredo, Texas.”
