Shipping To & From Mexico
B4 Logistics offers full load shipping services in and out of Mexico on a weekly basis, providing flatbed, step deck, dry van and heavy haul trailers. With our experienced team of industry professionals, we track every load daily, providing you with up-to-date info of your shipments.
We do not trans load, once your freight is on the trailer it stays on that trailer until delivery. To help ensure this, we designate tractor and trailer numbers for our customers so you can be certain that the trailer you pick up at the shipper is the same trailer that is delivered to the consignee. The trailers we use have satellite tracking, so daily updates are at a snap.
B4 LOGISTICS ONLY CROSSES INTO MEXICO FROM THE TEXAS BROWNSVILLE / LAREDO BORDER.
CUSTOMS BROKER INFORMATION
B4 logistics is not a customs broker. In fact, we don’t even handle customs. While we can certainly help direct you to a customs broker, we simply just facilitate getting the truck from point A to B. Anyone shipping to Mexico will need to contact a customs broker to find out all of the necessary fees associated with the freight. This includes first time companies shipping to Mexico. Keep in mind that, normal customs clearance time is 3 to 4 days.
REQUIRED SHIPPING DOCUMENTS FOR MEXICO
To ensure your shipment clears Mexican customs in a timely manner, it is essential that all necessary documents and marks are accurate. Inaccurate or incomplete information may result in delays.

NAFTA Certificate of Origin (If applicable)
ISPM15/IPPC mark for any solid wood packaging
