Cross-Border & Customs

February 2023 US/MX Cross-Border Update

We continue to see more companies moving production from China to Mexico. This increase in demand is reflected in the DAT load-to-truck ratio for Laredo Northbound which currently sits at 3:1. Many carriers in Mexico are allocating capacity to shippers with the best driver experience to retain drivers and get the highest yield possible at the current market pricing. Central and southern Mexico, namely the Zacatecas state and the states on the Pacific coast, continue to be areas with low availability of capacity.
