NAFTA Negotiations And The Trucking Industry

If you have been following the news over the last few months, you are probably aware that the NAFTA deal is up for renegotiation this year.  This agreement can greatly affect the trucking industry as it controls the import/export deals between the North American countries.  If there are less import/export deals, that could mean less truck runs between Canada and the USA or more runs if the deals increase.  However, the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) has sent a list of issues that they would like addressed at the negotiations that deal directly with truckers crossing the borders.  Some of these issues include In-Transit Shipments which deal with routes that cross in to a foreign country as a short cut as well as just understaffed borders.  The link below leads to an article outlining what is going on as well as going more in depth to the issues the CTA has given to Global Affairs Canada to discuss during negotiations.
