Mexico Direct

Mexico Direct is an all-rail, seamless option, offering Intermodal service between the U.S. and Canada and major Mexican markets. With Mexico Direct, shipments do not stop at the border for Customs clearance. Instead, they travel in-bond, clearing Customs at interior Mexican origins and destinations. Mexico Direct offers a through-rate structure that provides customers the convenience of a single price and a single bill for their ramp-to-ramp shipments to and from Mexico.
