PGT Trucking Inc., a multi-service transportation firm offering flatbed, dedicated, international, and specialized services, is expanding its operations in Laredo, Texas, with the purchase of land to build a state-of-the-art logistics center.
The new facility will include a full-service operations center, modern driver amenities, and a truck maintenance shop. It will provide a regional base for over 70 local drivers, and help further its operational reach, which already includes more than 4,000 cross-border loads annually.
Completion of the new facility is slated for December of 2023.
The 7.73-acre property, which is 50% larger than PGT's current terminal, is located in the Pinnacle Industry Center, just minutes from Interstate 35 and international bridges for commercial traffic.
"This is an exciting move for PGT," said Sergio Villarreal, PGT Trucking's manager of Southwest regional operations. "We're looking forward to growing our relationships and strengthening partnerships in the south to support our customers' international shipping needs. Our new facility in Laredo will elevate PGT's service offerings for our drivers, customers and local community."
PGT opened their first facility in Laredo in 1995.
