AGX Freight recently announced its expansion to the Houston, Texas port market with a new association with Texico Transport, and its principals, Pete and Maribel Ybarra. The Houston-based firm becomes the 20th agency to join the AGX network and the first in the Houston market. Texico Transport specializes in intermodal operations supporting the port of Houston, currently the 8th busiest port in the United States.

“We are excited to welcome Texico Transport to AGX Freight and look forward to supporting the Ybarra’s reputation for excellence and future growth potential in the Houston market”, said Jon Bramlett, Vice President of AGX Freight. Bramlett added, “this expansion was especially attractive to us based on our shared core values and the Ybarra’s track record”.

Texico Transport was founded 8 years ago and quickly found success. “We started our business with 3 drivers and by the end of the month, we were at 25 (drivers)”, said Maribel Ybarra, a principal at Texico Transport. Ybarra added, “we chose AGX because we want to be more competitive with other carriers in the Houston market and believe that with AGX Freight, we can accomplish that”.
