PGT Trucking Inc., a multi-service transportation firm offering flatbed, dedicated, international and specialized services, broke ground this week to mark the start of the construction for their new state-of-the-art logistics center in Laredo, Texas.

With an expected completion in early 2024, the custom facility will include a full-service operations center, modern driver amenities, and a truck maintenance shop, providing a regional base for over 70 local drivers.

PGT Trucking, which is based in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, has operated in the Southwest for more than 25 years, opening its first terminal in Laredo in 1995. The company moves more than 4,000 cross-border loads annually.

Leading the groundbreaking ceremony at the 7.73-acre site within the Pinnacle Industry Center was Gloria Solis, Laredo Chamber of Commerce Board Member. PGT Trucking company representatives, local government officials, and business leaders were in attendance.

"On behalf of PGT Trucking, and our partnerships with Park Avenue Construction, Kraus Development, and the Laredo Chamber of Commerce, we are excited for our expansion in Laredo, and support the continued development of this city and the surrounding areas," said Pat Gallagher, PGT Trucking CEO.
