Secure Drop Yard in the Pharr, Texas
Pharr is located at the southern tip of Texas in the Rio Grande Valley across from the Mexican city of Reynosa, and is about 70 miles west of South Padre Island and the Gulf of Mexico. The introduction of the maquiladora economy and the North American Free Trade Association led to a boom in international trade, cross-border commerce with Mexico. The McAllen Foreign-Trade Zone is located south of McAllen between McAllen and Reynosa. The area continuously ranks among the most active FTZs in the nation. There is also a Foreign-Trade Zone designation site at the McAllen-Miller International Airport to facilitate air cargo needs. Under U.S. and Mexican laws and NAFTA provisions, the FTZ designation offers specific cost-saving opportunities to manufacturers. Products can be brought into the FTZ duty-free. Services have recently extended to include full logistic support services including public warehouse services including pick and pack, order processing, inventory control, incoming/outgoing quality inspection and kitting.
At all times, all vehicle entrances and exits are controlled by on-site trained guards (i.e dedicated security staff experienced in drop yard services) to ensure that only authorized entries and exits are taking place.
