Mexico Says Texas Truck Inspections At Border Causing Freight Shipment Delays

  • Mexican government officials said Monday that renewed inspections of trucks at the Brownsville-Matamoros crossings in Texas are causing delays of between eight and 27 hours for freight shipments across the border.
  • The Economy Department said in a statement that inspections are causing “millions in losses for both Mexican and American companies.”
  • “These inspections are causing delays of between 8 and 27 hours in the entry of national cargo transports to Texas, which mainly affects perishable products. Ultimately, American consumers are paying the costs of these policies, so it’s in everyone’s interest to restore normalcy at the border,” the government said in a statement.
