Freight brokerage

In 2016 we started a new business unit, providing Freight Brokerage services for both Mexican & US market. Many of our customers request us for door-to-door solutions. Our goal is to offer services with vetted vendors at competitive pricing.

Coordinating over 5,000 domestics shipments per year, we provide competitive pricing and integrated visibility of shipment status and event management.

Intermodal

GLM is an IMC (sales partner) of Ferromex since 2005, developing the Interpacific service, whic runs from Mexico City to Mexicali. It offers the following advantages:

  • Empty equipment availability
  • Competitive pricing
  • Eco friendly service
  • Tracking visibility
  • Low theft risk, cargo insurance available

The Interpacific service has over 2,000 53-ft containers. 5 weekly departures (both North and Southbound). It covers all Mexico’s Pacific corridor as well as most of California (with OTR final delivery). Border crossing is usually through Calexico, and often cross-docking at the border offers additional savings. Average transit time is 6 days between the border to/from Mexico City.

Through cross-docking at the border we can take advantage of legal weight limitations in Mexico and US.
Solo 3 loads in Mexico could turn into 4 loads in US.

Frequencies and transit times

  • Currently 5 departures per week
  • 4 days of average transit (ramp-ramp) - to Mexico City
  • Usually 2 days from los Angeles to Mexicali (customs).
  • 1-2 days to destination.
  • Total average of days 7.
  • GLM has been working together with Ferromex since 2005 developing the inter-Pacific and intermodal maritime route.
