Jordan Dewart

Redwood Logistics


Jordan Dewart is the President of Redwood Mexico, the cross-border division of Redwood Logistics. With a demonstrated history of success, Jordan possesses a deep understanding of market knowledge both domestic and international, with a heavy emphasis in North American commerce.

As nearshoring efforts continue to come further into focus for manufacturers, Jordan is at the forefront of these calls, petitioning heavily in favor of Mexico and cross-border commerce. In April 2023, Jordan led Redwood Mexico as the company expanded operations south of the border into Monterrey, matching nearshoring efforts made by shippers in an effort to provide them the most advanced solutions for their cross-border needs.

His 25 year industry experience at Redwood and Yusen have all come working within the Mexico division.

Jordan holds a Bachelors of Commerce from the University of Alberta with a concentration in Spanish American Studies.

    Managing Cross-Border Trucking Amid Rising Demand

    2022’s economic slowdown barely dented US trade with Mexico, which is growing and promises to grow faster as so-called nearshoring of production in Mexico becomes more a reality than a concept. Rising truck traffic is putting more pressure on border crossings such as Laredo, the largest US land border crossing and a rival entry point to Los Angeles for US imports. How will the pressure to move more goods north through existing border crossings affect supply chains? Is the current infrastructure sufficient to handle what is to come? This panel will discuss how shippers and their partners can best navigate rising demand for cross-border trucking.
