FMCSA Taking Comments on Mexican Carrier Seeking Cross-Border Approval

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is seeking comment on the latest Mexican carrier seeking to participate in the cross-border trucking program.

The carrier seeking approval, GCC Transportes, follows several other Mexican trucking companies that earlier applied under the U.S.-Mexico cross-border program.

GCC has passed pre-authorization safety audits, or PASA, under the program, FMCSA said in a Federal Register notice published Thursday.

Participation by Mexican carriers remains low under the U.S.-Mexico cross-border trucking program, which began under the Bush administration but was suspended in 2009 and restarted last October.

Comments are due by Aug. 20. Click here to view the Federal Register notice or to comment. (U.S. government website.)
