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, according to PGT. Completion of the new facility is slated for December 2023.
Laredo is the primary hub for international shipments, and PGT said its centrally-located facility will help further its operational reach, which includes more than 4,000 cross-border loads annually. The 7.73-acre property is located in the Pinnacle Industry Center, according to PGT.
"This is an exciting move for PGT," stated 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 the local community."
