Carriers that cross the Mexico/U.S. border are facing challenges.

A federal court is slated to hear arguments March 15 against a 2014 FMCSA policy allowing Mexican carriers to apply for long-haul operating authority in the U.S.

Between October 14, 2011, and October 10, 2014, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) conducted the United States-Mexico Cross-Border Long-Haul Trucking Pilot Program to evaluate the ability of Mexico-domiciled motor carriers to operate safely in the United States beyond the municipalities and commercial zones along the United States-Mexico border.

The Pilot Program was part of FMCSA's implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) cross-border long-haul trucking provisions. The Pilot Program allowed approved Mexico-domiciled motor carriers to operate throughout the United States for up to 3 years. United States-domiciled motor carriers were granted reciprocal rights to operate in Mexico for the same period.
