    Looking Forward: The Rise in Trade with Mexico and Canada

    - by Transplace

    Nearshoring and even re-shoring have become very real happenings in North America. Due to a number of factors, including increased production costs in China, a rise in shipping costs for ocean and air freight, congested ports and labor unrest, many companies have chosen to move product manufacturing or assembly to Mexico. This in turn has caused an increase in order volume for finished goods traveling from Mexico to Canada, particularly in the automotive and consumer electronics industries.

    Canada-Mexico Transportation Heats Up – What You Need to Know

    - by Transplace

    Canada-Mexico trade continues to heat up thanks in part to the growing number of company’s near-shoring operations to North America, particularly to Mexico, from Asia. The rising cost to produce in Asia, as well as the cost of ocean and air transportation continuously increasing, port congestion and demand on speed to market are all contributing factors. Not only is Mexico becoming a preferred country for manufacturing specific commodities like flat screen TV’s and medical devices, we’re seeing it responsible for a lot of assembly. Even though goods are being made in Asia, those same goods are then assembled in Mexico to then be shipped into the U.S. and Canada.

    - by Transplace

    The first day of 2014 marked 20 years to the day of which the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was entered into force by the United States, Canada and Mexico.  According to the Office  of the United States Trade Representative website, NAFTA created the world’s largest free trade area, which now links 450 million people producing $17 trillion worth of goods and services.

    To get a better understanding of the impact of NAFTA over the last two decades, we sat down with Transplace Mexico’s managing directors, Troy Ryley and Jose Minarro, to discuss this pivotal agreement, why we’re better off with it and what needs to change.
