  • Logistics company expands U.S.-Mexico crossborder capabilities.
  • Manufacturers continue back-shoring tactics.
  • Manufacturers leverage Morrison’s free trade zone operations.

Morrison Express, a global logistics, transportation, and supply chain management provider, is expanding its offering in El Paso, Texas, providing enhanced cross-border capabilities and logistics.

The company has been involved with United States-Mexico crossborder trade logistics for 15 years.

“We have developed a streamlined shipping and communications process which has delivered an improved and expedited experience for our clients,” said Morrison Express El Paso operations manager Mona Lopez. “As an example, loads reach our facility and cross the border with on-site, bilingual staff who handle the inbound process at origin while communicating in Chinese and see shipments through to pre-inspection by customs in Mexico in Spanish.”

Morrison Express serves a large manufacturing base in Juarez and other cities, moving products like lightweight automotive materials and skins, tablet and technology components, synthetic rubber, and specialized polymers. Manufacturers who have employed American and Mexican back-shoring programs allow suppliers in Asia, the U.S., Canada and Mexico to cross the border for light assembly or even complete manufacturing, leveraging Morrison’s free trade zone operations, transportation, logistics, and customs expertise.

“For large electronics manufacturers, Morrison Express offers clients an expedited two- to three-day express service from Korea, Taiwan, China, and Hong Kong via LAX transload and crossdock to feed full containers into our El Paso facility,” said Morrison Express Director of Logistics and Customer Solutions, Eduardo Vargas. “An FTZ operation grants clients numerous benefits including duty deferment until export, unlimited storage time, electronic admission, and the ability to manipulate cargo stateside.”

Morrison Express also offers return merchandise authorization as a value-added program to manufacturers that are diagnosing issues, performing testing, and quality control and returning materials from U.S. retailers across the border and back to plants in Mexico.

Morrison Express has a network of more than 300 company and agent offices across five continents.
