GTM + Transport Acción

Why launch GTM Automotive Services now? Because we have amassed a brilliant international team, including our partner in Mexico, Transport Acción. Since 1976, Transport Acción has been an essential actor in US-Mexico trade. As Mexico has become the world’s seventh largest automaker, with this rapid growth expected to continue, Transport Acción’s role has also increased. With six locations in key cities in Mexico, Transport Acción has an established presence in the country’s major manufacturing centers.   Transport Acción’s award-winning, multi-modal transportation services include customs brokerage, NAFTA export/import expertise, and expedited freight capabilities. As the first Mexican logistics company to build a multiservice computer system to manage its offerings, Transport Acción also offers a technological edge. GTM has teamed up with Transport Acción to offer premium international logistics services to clients in Mexico and throughout North America. With its diverse offerings and proven knowledge of the automotive market, Transport Acción is a natural partner to serve both of our global automotive customers. Both of our companies are independent freight forwarders. This means that our staff will always give personal attention to clients’ cargo, meeting all of our customers’ logistics and supply chain needs. Our combined services are efficient, value-conscious and comprehensive. Recently, Mark Brodie, GTM’s Founder and Managing Member, met with Transport Acción executives in Mexico to discuss our combined door-to-door service offerings to and from Mexico. Transport Acción’s Luis Frias, Director; Martin Garcia Vivanco, Transportation Relations Manager; and Hugo Briones, Auto Industry Division Director discussed details of our companies’ air, ocean, warehousing and trucking capabilities. In particular, Mr. Briones’ years of logistics, purchasing, and assembly management experience with major automakers will help us to continue meeting the complex requirements of the automotive industry.   Transport Acción’s [...]
