LONG HAUL: Are there prohibitions, special terms and restrictions to “long haul” operating authority?


Yes, the terms and conditions for a Mexico-domiciled motor carrier granted operating authority DO NOT allow:

  • Point-to-point transportation services, including express delivery services, within the United States for goods other than international cargo (International cargo means cargo transported from a foreign country to the United States or from the United States to a foreign country);
  • Transportation of hazardous materials, as defined in 49 CFR 171.8, in any amount required to be placarded in accordance with 49 CFR 172 – Subpart F, beyond the U.S.-Mexico border commercial zones of the United States;
  • Transportation of passengers in the United States; and
  • Transportation by packaging and courier services.
