(camiones, empresas de) autotransporte foráneo de carga


Explanation:
"Foráneo" expresses the "long distance" concept; "autotransporte" the "trucking" part. Follows Mexican usage.

disagree  Gabriela Tenenbaum: perdón, foráneo significa extranjero. No tiene que ver con larga distancia.
1 hr
  -> Mil perdones; pero foráneo quiere decir "de fuera" o sea lejos, larga distancia. Y así se usa; lo veo a diario.

disagree  Andrea Bullrich: Por lo menos yo nunca vi foráneo en este sentido. Y "de fuera" puede no ser tan lejos...
5 hrs
  -> Entre ciudades; larga distancia; es transporte foráneo en México; en otros países será distinto.
