DAT Services adds Mexico to its mix

PORTLAND, Ore. (Jan. 11) — Spurred by what it calls a boom in demand for cross-border freight, DAT Services has added loads and trucks posted to or from destinations in Mexico to its load-matching service.

The company said it can offer available trucks and freight routed through a total of 297 Mexican cities and freight hubs. DAT Services project leader Bruce Butler added that the company has established an office in Laredo, Tex., to work with Mexican transportation companies with offices in the Southern U.S.

Butler said DAT’s expanded database means that U.S. or Canadian freight bound for what Butler termed “deep Mexico” can be posted directly though its final destination.

Last year, DAT Services opened an office in Toronto, its first foray into Canada.
