Where will my shipment cross the border and enter Mexico?
If you are taking advantage of our direct service into Mexico, your shipment border crossing is determined by the freight forwarder’s address (El Paso, Texas/Juarez, Mexico; or Laredo, Texas/Nuevo Laredo, Mexico).
How much will duties and taxes be?
The importer of record is normally billed by his/her broker for duties and taxes. The customs broker determines duty (if applicable) along with the appropriate taxes and reports those taxes to Customs on the client’s behalf. We can refer you to one of our trusted partners if you need a Mexico Customs Broker.
