The new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), goes into effect on July 1, 2020 and will impact shippers, manufacturers, and carriers who participate in cross-border trade. The new USMCA is intended to support mutually beneficial trade, leading to freer markets, fairer trade, and robust economic growth in North America.
To support shippers navigating cross-border trade in a post NAFTA environment, GlobalTranz has created a downloadable guide, After NAFTA: What Shippers Need To Know About The New USMCA. In this guide, shippers will learn the benefits, enhancements, and how to navigate the intricacies and opportunities of the new USMCA.
