Cargo movement delays at U.S.-Mexico border


     US-Mexico Border

Moving freight across the U.S.-Mexico border is taking four to five times longer than usual because the handling of illegal immigration is now a higher priority than cargo processing.

For more information, contact Brian Rowe, Director – Customs Compliance & Regulatory Affairs.
