Mexican-Owned or Mexico-Domiciled Carrier Activity

This section of A&I Online includes reports for the following types of Mexican-Owned or Mexico-Domiciled motor carriers:

  • Pilot - A Mexico-domiciled carrier granted authority to operate throughout the United States as a participant in the U.S.-Mexico Cross Border Long-Haul Trucking Pilot Program. A&I reports include activity during the timeframe of the program—October 14, 2011 through October 10, 2014—for those drivers and vehicles that were approved to participate.
  • Certificate - A Mexico-domiciled motor carrier that transports exempt commodities or operates as a private motor carrier. These motor carriers were issued authority to operate trucks throughout the United States prior to 2002.
  • Enterprise - A Mexican-owned carrier that is domiciled in the United States; operates in the United States, conducting cross-border transportation of international cargo that originates in or is destined for a foreign country; and is subject to all U.S., state, and local laws pertaining to motor carrier operations and their vehicles.
  • Commercial Zone - A Mexico-domiciled carrier that has authority to operate its trucks only within the U.S.-Mexico border commercial zones in the United States.
  • Long Haul - A Mexico-domiciled carrier that has authority to engage in long-haul transportation as a common carrier of property (except household goods and hazardous materials) by motor vehicle in interstate or foreign commerce in or beyond the commercial zones of the United States. The authority does not allow point-to-point transportation services within the United States for goods other than international cargo. Reports include activity for all U.S. operations from the date the carrier was first allowed to operate up through the date of the current data snapshot. (Note: This includes the former Pilot Carriers and will result in some overlap and double-counting of data for Pilot and Long Haul Carriers.)
