The area immediately surrounding the Pharr International Bridge is becoming a force to be reckoned with in the produce sector. Though commercial traffic on the bridge has increased dramatically within the last decade, the bridge’s four lanes of traffic easily accommodate the 1,600 to 1,800 commercial vehicles that cross it daily with an average wait time of only 40 minutes. So let Pharr help you decrease your lead-time so you can deliver your produce and go back to what you do best.


Our state-of-the-art cold storage and inspection facilities coupled with our centralized location help make Pharr one of the most cost efficient routes in the industry. The Mexican state of Sinaloa is the largest exporter of perishable goods into the U.S. Transporting produce to the east coast is more efficient via the bridge in Pharr with six permanent cold storage facilities in a prime location. Pharr also offers access to the Federal-approved FAST (Free and Secure Traffic) Lane, which expedites the inspection process and allows you to get where you need to go without the hassle of a long wait.


The future of Pharr is exceedingly bright. Currently, the city owns 70 feet of right-of-way for future expansion and the Pharr Produce District has an additional 300 acres of space available for future development. The projected growth of the area and plans for expansion will help supplement the increasing number of truck crossings and produce inspections. In addition, construction is nearly complete on a measure by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection in association with TxDOT and City of Pharr to streamline traffic from import area to inspection facility. When it comes to finding alternate ways to expand your produce distribution opportunities, make Pharr’s growth work to your advantage and watch your profit margin grow along with it.
