    Expanding Cross-Border Operations the U.S and Mexico

    Leading the trend towards increased transportation southward, Arrive Logistics and BlueGrace Logistics have recently announced the opening of their first offices in Mexico. The expansion initiatives by these logistics companies prompt the question of whether other 3PL transportation firms, such as Worldcraft Logistics, will follow suit in the future.

    Arrive Logistics' new location in Guadalajara, Mexico, spanning 18,000 square feet, will accommodate business development and specialized cross-border solutions teams. This expansion responds to the growing demand for localized resources to serve the rising number of companies establishing manufacturing and transportation operations within Mexico.

    Mexico, the top overall trade partner of the U.S. in 2023 with a total trade value of $798 billion, continues to be a strategic focus for companies like Arrive Logistics. Jess Billedo, the appointed leader of Arrive Logistics in Mexico, expressed the company's commitment to strengthening relationships with local partners and providing seamless connections across their North American operations.

    BlueGrace Logistics, based in Florida, also entered the Mexican market by opening its first logistics support center in Guadalajara. The center will aid in cross-border transportation services for various cargo types and managed logistics solutions.

    Surge in Toll Truck Traffic on Texas State Highway 130

    Texas State Highway 130, a toll road, has experienced a significant increase in truck traffic, rising by over 9.5% compared to the previous year. The SH 130 Concession Company, responsible for operating the toll road, reported over 3.5 million truck transactions last year, contributing to an overall 10% increase in total transactions.

    Adam Hesketh, CEO of SH 130 Concession Co., attributes this growth to the robust population increase in central Texas, combined with commercial development along the SH 130 corridor. The toll road, stretching 91 miles through the center of Texas, continues to be a preferred choice for many drivers, particularly in response to the region's ongoing growth.
