A leading North American truckload carrier opens its sixth terminal. Adjacent to the largest non-sea-based land port in the U.S, Laredo, Texas, this terminal further solidifies Freight Exchange’s standing as a major carrier in supporting NAFTA cross border trade.

CHICAGO, March 21, 2013 – Freight Exchange North America (F/X) has announced the planned opening of their newest terminal in Laredo, TX. The terminal, which is the company’s sixth, is meant to deepen its strong hold of the Texas cross border market. The new terminal will give F/X’s customers complete coverage of the major Mexican border crossing points in Texas and act as a base for recruiting owner operators.  The new terminal will feature a large trailer yard, tractor parking, sales and recruiting office and many other driver amenities.

F/X was recently named a 2013 Best Fleets to Drive For “Fleets to Watch” by Truckload Carriers Association and Carriers Edge.  The “Fleets to Watch” award honors companies demonstrating innovation in their driver programs.  
“We are very happy to add Laredo to our network, our customers and owner operators have been asking us to open a Laredo terminal for years,” said Todd Bennett, president of F/X. “Only because of their tremendous support of F/X were we able to answer their call for this new facility”.

F/X plans to grow more terminals in 2013. By continuing the geographic expansion strategy across the US, F/X can provide more service offerings for customers as well as provide a friendly network to its fleet of drivers. Bennett believes that factoring customer and driver needs into decisions affecting growth is the best way to add value to the enterprise.
