​​​​​LAREDO – A new Landstar U.S.-Mexico Logistics Service Center ​is one of the largest facilities of its kind in Laredo.

Landstar System​ is a worldwide provider of transportation management services.

The $3.3 billion U.S. trucking operator opened the terminal in Laredo—the largest crossing point for U.S.-Mexico truck traffic, significantly increasing Landstar’s cross-border capacity.​

​The 31,000-sf​ center broke ground in April 2016 and is located on a 50-acre site in the Mines Road business district.​​

A highly secured C-TPAT certified site​, the service center features a 20,000-sf cross-dock and transload facility with 30 bays. 

The new yard is capable of holding more than 450 trailers, which is 2.5 times the capacity of Landstar's previous facility in Laredo that went into service in 1999.

The dedicated and expanded section of the yard includes a custom designed, 120-ton stand-alone bridge crane.

The 120-ton bridge crane is unique to the cross-border market.
