THE NUMBER OF MEXICAN CARRIERS WITH LICENSES FOR FREIGHT TRUCKS IN THE US RISE

October 18, 2022 9:15 pm

More than 3,000 Mexican trucks provide cargo transport services throughout the U.S and
Canadian territory, compared to three years ago this represents a triple increase. in 2019 only
64 Mexican Carriers had the authority to offer this service, with only 934 trucks.

An important fact is that a Mexican long-distance carrier, who is domiciled in Mexico, may have
authority to make long-distance travel in the United States and Canada. This as a driver of
goods, beyond the border commercial areas.

Recently the figures were much smaller. In 2016, the Department of Transportation only allowed
the operation of 23 Mexican carriers with 116 trucks.

LOGISTICS INTEGRATION

According to the Ministry of Infrastructure, Communications and Transportation (MITOC), Last
June, 192 companies had authorizations to provide international freight transport services in
Mexico, the United States and Canada, with 3,063 trucks that are no longer limited to circulate
exclusively in border areas and that favor door-to-door services and logistics integration.
