Mexican Inland Situation

As from August 27, 2018 a new Transport Regulation (NOM-087) emitted by the Mexican Authorities will go into effect.
Mexican Inland Situation

This NOM will regulate the maximum time that a driver can drive during the day. The basic points that will be observed are:

- Maximum driving time per day: 14 hours
- A mandatory rest of 30 minutes every 5 hours driving
- A minimum rest of 8 hours every 14 hours of driving (in a period of 24 hrs)
- All these requirements need to be registered in a logbook that the driver always has to carry with him

The main impact this new regulation will have in the Industry is a lack of drivers specialized in the movement of containerized cargo, as well as an increase in the transit times for routes longer than 600 kilometers.

Furthermore, we would like to take this opportunity to point out that Transport Regulation (NOM-012) has entered into force on July 2018 which regulates the use of Tandem Chassis (which indirectly means a reduction in resources).
