DOT negotiating now with officials over specifics of plans
Department of Transportation officials and the U.S. trade representative’s office are in Mexico this week negotiating final details of a renewed Mexican truck demonstration project with the goal of allowing foreign long-haul loads to roam U.S. roads by summer.
The starting point for negotiations between Mexico and the United States was a “Concept Document” the DOT published on its website called “Phased U.S.-Mexico Cross Border Long Haul Trucking Proposal.”
