Mesilla Valley Transportation Company Review

Mesilla Valley Transportation Company Overview

Mesilla Valley Transportation company logo

Located in Las Cruces, New Mexico, and in El Paso, Texas, MVT began in 1981 hauling primarily refrigerated/perishable goods, as a small, independent fleet in the Southwest. During a period of controlled growth through the 1980's and early 1990's, the MVT service area encompassed the 48 United States and Canada.

In 1991, MVT brought its knowledge of time-sensitive, reliable transportation to the U.S./Mexico border in service of the twin-plant industry. The acquisition of numerous 53 ft. dry van trailers made their fleet a sizable force in the industry.

Today, Mesilla Valley Transportation is one of the largest locally-owned transportation providers in Western Texas and New Mexico, specializing in time sensitive service between major manufacturing areas in the U.S. and Canada, and Mexico borders.
