U.S. Department of Transportation officials have urged more Mexican carriers to apply for the cross-border trucking program, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
DOT officials said at a Friday meeting in Tijuana, Mexico, near the Otay Mesa, Calif., border crossing that more enrollment by Mexican truckers was critical to the programâ€™s success, the paper reported.
To date, just 21 Mexican companies have sought to join the program, the Union-Tribune reported, citing Marcelo Perez, a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration official. FMCSA is part of DOT.
In November, a third Mexican carrier passed preliminary U.S. safety review to participate in the two countriesâ€™ cross-border trucking program.
