El Paso, Texas, May 17, 2013 – As a result of an increase in the volume of cross border shipping by maquiladora industry manufacturers in the El Paso, Texas – Ciudad Juarez, Mexico region, Tecma Transportation Services (TTS), a member of the Tecma Group of Companies, has invested in the expansion of its commercial fleet. In addition to making a capital investment that will allow TTS to service more companies, the new equipment purchase will result in the betterment of service offered to its existing customers.

Tecma Transportation recently purchased four new International ProStar trucks. International ProStars are fuel efficient, class 8 commercial vehicles that are powered by Maxxforce engines. In addition to making this equipment available to its growing Mexican and U.S. clientele, TTS has also procured twenty-five new fifty-three foot “air-ride” trailers. The air suspension that is built into these conveyances assures that customers’ cargo arrives at its destination without damage due to road vibration, as is sometimes the case when shippers’ vehicles are equipped with leaf spring suspension systems.

According the Vice President of Border Solutions for Tecma Transportation Services, John Rippee, “our company is excited about having made these significant capitals investment. We are supremely confident that in addition to allowing us to handle more capacity, our new trucks and trailers will give us a qualitative edge in the market in which we compete.”
