|Following the announcement on April 6, 2022 by Texas Governor Greg Abbott of an order requiring additional inspections of commercial trucks, significant delays are being experienced at border crossings along the US-MX border in Texas.
The orders for enhanced inspections by the US Department of Homeland Security were made as a part of an effort to address issues around human trafficking and the flow of drugs into the US. The enhanced inspections have resulted in delays of up to 12 hours at some crossings, as well as a protest blocking entry by Mexican truckers at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge.
In addition to traffic delays, it is anticipated that there will be significant delays in processing times for Northbound shipments as well as delays at the US/MX Customs offices at the Texas-Mexico border ports of crossing.
