Union Pacific's powerful Intermodal franchise offers unmatched service to and from Mexico. Utilizing a fleet of nearly 80,000 rail containers, Union Pacific serves several major gateways through two shipping options — Mexico Direct and Border Direct. Our dedicated team has the expertise to help you make doing business in Mexico efficient and easy.

Mexico Direct

Mexico Direct is an all-rail, seamless service that bypasses border crossings. Southbound shipments do not stop at the border for customs clearance. Instead, they travel in-bond, clearing customs at interior Mexico origins and destinations.

Ship to and from Mexico via Union Pacific’s cross-border service, an all-rail service that bypasses border crossings and takes the guesswork out of doing business across the border. Our team works to create a virtually seamless network that makes doing business in Mexico efficient and easy.

In addition, our through-rate structure provides you with the convenience of a single price and a single bill for ramp-to-ramp shipments to and from Mexico.
