Booming trade between Mexico and the U.S. is proving a boon to railroad, trucking and logistics firms. Union Pacific's (UNP) cross-border carloads, for example, increased 6% in the first nine months of 2012, well above its overall volume growth of 1%. Other companies that are benefiting include Kansas City Southern (KSU), CSX (CSX), Norfolk Southern (NSC), J.B. Hunt (JBHT), Swift Transportation (SWFT), Celadon (CGI) and Pacer (PACR).
