DHL has launched a new, integrated service for goods crossing the border between the U.S. and Mexico. Dubbed Logistics Without Borders, the offering will provide "one-stop" access by shippers, carriers and end-users to tools that simplify the cross-border process, while ensuring that shipments reach their destination securely and on time, the company said. Customers will be able to draw on the expertise of DHL's Global Forwarding and Supply Chain divisions, accessing modules for transportation, customs and brokerage, bonded warehousing, cross-docking and document management.
