Internet load matching has come to Mexico.
In a joint venture, GRAYSAM Inc., a Mexican commodities trading company, and The Internet Truckstop, a U.S. Internet load matching service, have launched a new load-matching site called Micarga.com at www.micarga.com.
The Micarga.com site resembles the Internet Truckstop, except that it features the red, white and green of the Mexican flag and the information is in Spanish. According to a press release, Micarga.com will include border exchange of trailers along nearly 2,000 miles of the U.S.-Mexican border and all major gateways.
"This is a major achievement for Mexico," said Telesforo Fernandez, president of GRAYSAM.
"Micarga" is a non-grammatical Spanish term that translates roughly to "my load or my cargo."
