ATA Statement on U.S.-Mexico Trade Agreement


Arlington, Virginia – Today, American Trucking Associations President and CEO Chris Spear issued the following statement:


“We commend President Trump and his team of negotiators on reaching a tentative agreement with Mexico to modernize NAFTA.  America relies on trucks to carry the bulk of goods that move across our borders, and so our industry knows full well the value and importance of free and fair trade.  We look forward to productive work with our partners in Canada and examining this new agreement in detail to assess how it will affect motor carriers and the flow of commerce between our North American partners.”
