Border Security

Border Ambassadors

Yellow is the only carrier with professional Border Ambassadors. Our full-time experts on both sides of the border work with brokers to ensure timely clearance and efficient crossings.


Our Border Ambassadors will:


  • Monitor your shipment’s progress across the border
  • Advise you of delays
  • Explain what we’re doing to help resolve customs delays or issues


You will receive personal attention, electronic shipment tracking, single point-of-contact and door-to-door service. Border Ambassadors track the progress of every shipment to ensure it clears the border. Our bilingual experts act on your behalf by working with Mexico and U.S. Customs, customs brokers, and forwarders to ensure seamless border crossings. After your shipment crosses the border, we continue monitoring it to its destination.

Cross borders with confidence

Yellow is fully compliant with programs affecting cross-border transport. In fact, we helped develop programs that improve supply-chain security while keeping the borders open to legitimate trade. In return, you receive faster processing and fewer inspections, particularly if your shipments are subject to bioterrorism initiatives.


We work with agencies to help develop the transportation requirements for the U.S. Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program. We ensure we move your shipments the right way, which includes all necessary certifications such as:


  • Nuevo Esquema de Empresas Certificadas (NEEC)
  • Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT)
  • Free and Secure Trade (FAST)
  • Business Alliance for Secure Commerce (BASC)


For additional security, we have gated CCTV-monitored facilities, background checks and drug tests for employees, including canine inspections upon truck arrival.
