As directed by the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) Statement of Administrative Action, we are conducting a review of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) grants of operating authorities to carriers for conducting operations beyond border commercial zones. Pursuant to the USMCA Implementation Act, in August 2021, FMCSA submitted a report to Congress on all existing grants of operating authority to, and pending applications for operating authority from, all Mexico-domiciled and Mexican-owned or -controlled motor property carriers with authority to operate beyond border commercial zones. The objectives for this review will be to determine whether FMCSA (1) met requirements in authorizing Mexico-domiciled and Mexican-owned or ‑controlled motor carriers to conduct long-haul trucking operations beyond border commercial zones and (2) monitored those carriers to ensure they are operating safely.
