Cargo aboard specific Mexican trucks and bound for the United States will soon be inspected by American officials south of the border and allowed to circumvent the lines at ports of entry, a top Mexican diplomat announced Thursday.
Mexico’s ambassador to the United States, Arturo Sarukhan, said the countries are just days away from unveiling the initiative, which he said would be a giant step toward eliminating hourslong waits for cargo companies approved for the program.
“Whatever is sent over the border does not have to stop,” he told a panel at the NAFTA20 conference in San Antonio. “And this is going to be huge.”
