The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration last week proposed its plan for a three-year pilot program in which Mexican and U.S. carriers could offer long-distance service into each country.
The program is the result of an agreement between President Obama and President Calderon of Mexico to resolve the long-standing dispute over cross-border trucking.
FMCSA will publish the details of the program in the Federal Register, probably this week, and will take comments for 30 days.
Once the program is in place, Mexico will start to suspend the tariffs it levied when the Congress killed an earlier version of the pilot.
