US-Mexico Trade:

How Will an Uncertain Landscape Affect Shippers?

Whether President Trump withdraws the US from the North American Free Trade Agreement or not, US trade with Mexico is on course to grow. Cross-border supply chains are linked at a deep level, and whatever trade agreements the US, Canada and Mexico agree upon, freight will keep moving. Indeed, after a declining in 2016, total US-Mexico trade increased more than 6 percent year over year in 2017, according to the US Census Bureau’s Foreign Trade Division. That doesn’t mean the flow of goods can’t be improved, or that policy couldn’t have an impact on how goods move. The bigger question may be how the US economy and available transportation capacity affects cross-border freight. How will shippers, logistics companies and transportation operators cope with increased congestion at the border and uncertain policies in our nations’ capitals? How will proposed changes affect shippers’ supply chains, and how should BCOs prepare?

Globalization has enhanced the potential and impact of logistics services across Mexico. We invite you to learn about the implications of this reality. Efficient logistics are an important feature of a country’s international competitiveness. However, this is not the same everywhere in the world, because not all nations have the resources and infrastructure needed to develop advanced logistics systems. While Mexico doesn’t have one of the sector’s highest technological levels it does have excellent engineers and technicians who constantly seek ways to optimize times and…Continue Reading “Logistics and its importance in Mexico”
