    Managing Cross-Border Trucking Amid Rising Demand

    2022’s economic slowdown barely dented US trade with Mexico, which is growing and promises to grow faster as so-called nearshoring of production in Mexico becomes more a reality than a concept. Rising truck traffic is putting more pressure on border crossings such as Laredo, the largest US land border crossing and a rival entry point to Los Angeles for US imports. How will the pressure to move more goods north through existing border crossings affect supply chains? Is the current infrastructure sufficient to handle what is to come? This panel will discuss how shippers and their partners can best navigate rising demand for cross-border trucking.
