Abstract:

Trucking companies might have to hire more operators to maintain their business scope if the proposal from US regulators to impose speed limiters to trucks comes into force. Lowering the distance a truck can travel within a day decreases the capacity of existing fleets and can have a negative impact on the profitability and consequently operations of road transportation companies. The US and Mexico reached an agreement to remove limitations on the number of flights between them to the benefit of air freight volumes as several airlines already added and have planned new services.

It becomes highly unlikely that such a deal will be reached in the near future with the potential for increased trade volumes between the two regions to remain unutilised. ...It becomes highly unlikely that such a deal will be reached in the near future with the potential for increased trade volumes between the two regions to remain unutilised.
