Keeping Your Freight Moving
MTS has proactively invested in several government initiatives (with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of Homeland Security and the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency) that help to ensure your products are cleared at the border with greater speed and efficiency. MTS is dedicated to delivering on time, all the time, by incorporating programs that satisfy your cross-border requirements.
Mosaic, our logistics division takes even further precautions to ensure your load is safe. Any potential partner carrier goes through a thorough review process where insurance policies are reviewed directly with the insurer, operating authorities are confirmed with the issuing government, and authenticity of the carrier is confirmed with their financial institutions. This ensures that your load gets where it needs to be, without interruption and with you knowing we have ensured the highest levels of security are provided, as with all of our divisions.
