The Mexican economy is outpacing some of the faster growing regions in the world-such as Russia-and it is estimated that Mexico will be the eighth largest economy in the world by 2050.
The Logistics & Manufacturing Association of Port Laredo is the successor to the Laredo Manufacturers Association and the Laredo Transportation Association. These two associations merged in February of 2007 and is structured and organized as a viable resource to the manufacturing and transportation communities of Los Dos Laredos.
The membership is active in various committees. These committees include: Communication, Customs/Transportation, Education, Environmental, Government Interface, Maquiladora, Membership and Scholarship.
Our membership interfaces with other civic organizations such as the Laredo Chamber of Commerce, Laredo Development Foundation, Customhouse Brokers Association, Transportation Association and local, state and federal agencies and officials.
This synergism has provided the membership and our business community with better answers and solutions to common problems.
