Always in Motion:

GTM + Transport Acción

Published On: April 15th, 2016

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.

The GTM/Transport Acción partnership also reaches beyond Mexico and the US. We’re both hand-picked members of the Elite Global Logistics Network (EGLN), an international alliance of highly qualified, financially sound, independent freight forwarders.

As we’ve both served automakers and auto suppliers for many years, we thoroughly understand all aspects of this industry. Together, we’ve developed a premium, global, door-to-door automotive product. We serve our customers by drawing upon our individual service offerings and assets, including our trucking fleet, customs clearance expertise, warehousing, and large contracts with key international ocean and air carriers.

The GTM/Transport Acción team embodies excellence across all transport modes, ensuring your shipments arrive safely and on time. Our clients value our proven reliability and exceptional customer service.
