U.S. Xpress offers transportation services throughout North America. It has announced its intention to acquire a 90-percent interest in Xpress Internacional, which operates a terminal network in major Mexican cities. The deal, expanding on a joint venture created five years ago, allows U.S. Xpress to provide door-to-door service between the two countries. In addition, U.S. Xpress has formed a new joint venture with Monterrey-based Logisti-K, a provider of cross-border and Mexican logistics services since 2002. The deal expands U.S. Xpress offerings in Mexico to include warehousing and distribution (including cross-dock, door-to-door and end-to-end services), inventory management, order fulfillment, domestic and international freight management and freight-forwarding services via full truckload, less-than-truckload, intermodal, ocean and air.

The Mexican expansion comes on the heels of U.S. Xpress's new cross-border partnership with Canada's Maritime Ontario.
