Experience: With one of the longest histories of international service among all United States carriers, border crossings are routine business at Melton Truck Lines. Over 30% of our business crosses the US/Mexico border. Throughout our 30+ years of service to and from Mexico, Melton has demonstrated its superiority in cross-border operations expertise and the ability to deliver products on time and damage-free, which has contributed significantly to the exporting and importing success of our customers. We are recognized industry-wide as one of the most dependable and experienced international carriers. Melton Truck Lines was again recognized for its international service in 2012 with the President’s “E” Star Award for Export Service. This award is given to previous “E” Award recipients who have continued to demonstrate a significant contribution to U.S. export expansion.
Thru-trailer service to and from Mexico: Our thru-trailer service keeps our customers' cargo on the same trailer, which speeds border crossing and reduces total cost. Our customers are able to track their own shipments into and out of Mexico via our website, which includes information fields that can be updated by our Mexican carriers.
Qualified Personnel & Modern Facilities: Our offices in Monterrey, Laredo, El Paso and Tulsa are staffed by personnel who monitor all shipments in Mexico and ensure each load arrives at the final delivery point intact and on time. Melton's high quality service standards are upheld by maintaining long-term associations with Mexican carriers. Our customers are able to depend on the experience we have built working with the most respected Mexican carriers, customs brokers and freight forwarders. For our customers new to selling products in Mexico or Canada, we are able to help them with packaging, export documentation and the selection of a customs broker or freight forwarder.
Thousands of truckloads per day currently cross the Laredo, TX border. The majority of Melton Truck Lines' trailers moving freight for our customers use this particular port. Our cargo protection facility (CPF) at our Laredo terminal is capable of holding 20 trailers under roof and serves as a protected holding area for cargo in transit. The other ports we provide service through include Calexico, CA; Nogales, AZ; McAllen, Brownsville, Eagle Pass, and El Paso, TX.
Award Winning Service: In 2002, Melton was awarded with the prestigious President's "E" Award for excellence in exporting. The President's "E" Award is our nation's highest honor for achievement in exporting and attests to the professionalism Melton demonstrates in its cross-border operations. This award recognizes organizations that contribute significantly in the effort to increase United States exports. Melton was recognized for facilitating export expansion through transportation.
