PGT Trucking to build new logistics center in Laredo, Texas

Sept. 19, 2022
The new facility, slated for completion in December 2023, will include a full-service operations center, modern driver amenities, and a truck maintenance shop.

PGT Trucking, a multi-service transportation firm offering flatbed, dedicated, international and specialized services, is expanding its operations in Laredo, Texas, with the purchase of land to build a new logistics center. The custom facility will include a full-service operations center, modern driver amenities, and a truck maintenance shop, providing a regional base for more than 70 area drivers. Completion of the facility is slated for December 2023, according to a company press release.

According to the company, Laredo is the primary hub for international shipments, and PGT's centrally located facility will help further the company's operational reach, which already includes more than 4,000 cross-border loads annually. The 7.73-acre property, 50% larger than PGT's current terminal, is located in the Pinnacle Industry Center, minutes from Interstate 35  and international bridges for commercial traffic.

Our new facility in Laredo will elevate PGT's service offerings for our drivers, customers, and local community."

PGT opened its first facility in Laredo in 1995 and has operated in the region for more than 25 years.
