United States looks to block Mexican trucks in any NAFTA deal

According to a recent report by Bloomberg, American negotiators are advocating to remove Mexican long-haul trucks from the NAFTA Chapter on cross-border services.

The 1994 protocol provision opened up the United States to Mexican long-haul truck transportation, which was subsequently delayed through the resistance of trucking and environmental lobbyists, essentially restricting Mexican trucks to operating only in U.S. border regions.
