CFI recently repurposed a facility in Laredo, Texas, that will serve as the sales, operations and administrative center for CFI Logistics services in and out of Mexico.
The Laredo facility will now be a shared facility between CFI Logistics and CFI Mexico, a service comprising CFI Logistica and CFI de Mexico. CFI de Mexico is headquartered in the World Trade Center in Guadalajara, Mexico.
“A majority of our customers have investments in business operations in the U.S. and Mexico, and they’re growing,” Greg Orr, president of CFI, said in a statement. “It made sense to establish one convenient, central office for our principal U.S. and Mexico logistics management and operations teams.”
CFI Logistics is affiliated with truckload carrier CFI, an operating company of TFI International Inc.
CFI’s facility is located on 40 acres at 14610 Mines Road, about 4 miles from the World Trade Bridge border crossing into Mexico.
CFI’s complex includes a maintenance facility, driver lounge, dispatch office and a large, paved parking area for staging and transloading of freight for cross-border moves. The site can accommodate 480 trailers.
CFI Mexico and CFI Logistics employ about 200 associates.
In 2020, CFI Mexico handled more than 90,000 cross-border shipments, with an additional 19,500 LTL shipments within Mexico, , according to the company. CFI also contracts with more than 80 Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) certified carriers.
The powertrain on the Ioniq 5 is also quite admirable.
