FMCSA Cross-border Program Ends

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s three-year cross-border trucking pilot program with Mexico officially ended Oct. 14, and FMCSA said in a statement that the 13 carriers participating in the program have been converted to provisional or standard operating authority, allowing them to continue to operate in the U.S.

FMCSA now awaits the recommendations of the Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee (MCSAC), which meets October 27-28 in Alexandria, VA and the final report initiated by the Department of Transportation, Office of Inspector General on July 30, 2014.
