GREEN BAY, Wis. — Schneider National says it’s “business as usual” for the carrier following the cross-border agreement announced this summer between the US and Mexico.
“We’ve worked with shippers, government entities and a base of highly qualified Mexican carriers over the last 20 years, creating a cross-border process that delivers an efficient, cost-effective and secure system that shortens the supply chain for our customers,” said Jim Filter, general manager for Schneider National de Mexico. “Our process is fine tuned and well documented; we have no intentions to fix what’s not broken.”
Schneider is one of the largest cross-border carriers in the US, moving more than 200 loads per day. Officials say the carrier has operated in Mexico for nearly two decades using hand-selected Mexican carriers to haul freight in Mexico and navigate the border-crossing process. The company’s cross-border service, EZ-Border, is designed to provide customers with a streamlined operation with a single point of contact, one service and a single invoice, officials said.
“EZ-Border manages the process for customers, eliminating their need to arrange the domestic move with one company, the border transfer with another and the foreign carrier movement with a third,” noted Filter. “Our expertise also extends to customs regulations, ensuring that freight is compliant and doesn’t experience delays. Schneider’s EZ-Border makes complex international moves easy for customers, allowing them to focus on their core businesses.”
