ATA Urges Congress to Move on USMCA

Trucking Congratulates Mexico for Ratifying Important Trade Agreement

 

Arlington, Virginia — American Trucking Associations President and CEO Chris Spear issued the following statement after Mexico’s ratification of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.

"Mexico's action in ratifying the USMCA is a critical step forward in putting this important trade agreement in place.

"Ensuring free and fair trade with our closest neighbors is critical to the trucking industry, which moves $772.3 billion worth of goods across our borders with Mexico and Canada.

“Trade with these two countries alone supports nearly 90,000 Americans in trucking-related jobs and generates $12.62 billion in revenue for our industry. We encourage Congress to move forward on ratifying this important agreement so all three nations may continue to share in the benefits that trade creates.”

American Trucking Associations is the largest national trade association for the trucking industry. Through a federation of 50 affiliated state trucking associations and industry-related conferences and councils, ATA is the voice of the industry America depends on most to move our nation’s freight.
