    Trucking IV: Mexico Trucking: Looking Beyond the Border

    Cross-border truck traffic between Mexico and the US is rising as nearshoring plans progress, and that’s putting pressure on border crossings as well as shippers, trucking companies and logistics providers on both sides of the border. This panel will examine how cross-border trucking is evolving under that pressure, when major crossing points can quickly become chokepoints. We’ll learn about challenges shippers face at major border crossings, how supply chains and services are changing to meet rising demand, and how shippers can better manage the flow of cross-border freight heading north and south.
