The new head of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration says
there are no immediate plans to open the border to Mexican trucks.
John Hill made the remarks during a recent online chat with trucking
company officials. And, FMCSA spokesman Ian Grossman reiterated that position to
“Land Line Now” on XM Satellite Radio.
“Well, we are continuing our conversations with Mexican officials to
allow cross-border trucking operations, but no decision has been made,”
There’s been talk of a pilot program that would allow a relatively
small number of Mexican trucking companies to enter the U.S. But, Grossman said, no decision has been made on when or if that will happen.
