I’ve several friends and a few relatives involved in the shipping industry. I’ve even a cousin as well as a couple of close friends who do, what they like to call, over the road trucking, and haul freight for companies that ship Mexico freight, as well as all over the USA and Canada. They spend a lot of time on the road and tell me that if not for the company that provides the logistics to ship things internationally, then they’d pretty much be mired in delays and customs problems. My cousin once told me that the company they use has recommendations from the Defense Department and even airlines like Continental. But shipping lanes and airports, although an integral part of the transportation industry pales in comparison to the importance of over the road transportation. You have to figure, if you can’t get the trucks out, loaded and on the road on time and under budget, it could be devastating to businesses in general. Without the trucking industry running efficiently the whole world could find their economy collapsing. Now that wouldn’t go over very well at all with the truckers. Not to worry though, with companies like Logistics Group International Inc., who handle every aspect of getting loads to the right destination on time and under budget, the shipping industry is in good hands. It is a point of pride for the company and its employees that no matter how small or how large the project, L.G. I. has the resources to ensure a quality transport solution, every time. And I believe that may even be a direct quote.
My cousin, of course, is a specialized heavy haul transportation driver and has his own rig. He hauls freight to Mexico mostly, but he has had routes that took him to Canada as well. As a matter of fact I think he mentioned something about hauling an “over-sized load” from Mexico to somewhere in Tennessee this coming week. His company uses L.G.I. for all their shipping solutions and he swears by them.
