The North American automotive supply chain depends on reliable, efficient and fast cross-border logistics, with huge volumes of parts and vehicles moving just in time between the United States, Mexico and Canada every day. Today, manufacturers face significant time, cost and customs processing issues with Covid-19 related controls, capacity shortages and growing regulatory requirements.
But there are ways for OEMs and suppliers to alleviate these issues, especially in logistics solutions that reduce handling and dotting requirements and improve visibility into transportation equipment and digitally connected locations.
This is why D-Troy Logistics, one of the leading providers of cross-border logistics solutions, has established a strategic alliance with Transportes Logisticos Especializados (TLE) on door-to-door cross-border solutions. TLE is a CTPAT certified logistics provider specializing in reducing cross-border delivery times with a fleet of equipment and drivers on both sides of the US-Mexico border and state-of-the-art logistics systems.
In this interview, TLE CEO Agustin Sustaita addresses Automotive logistics Editor-in-Chief Christopher Ludwig ahead of the upcoming Automotive Logistics and Supply Chain Global Live conference in Detroit on the lingering challenges at the US-Mexico border, highlighting the processes, technology and collaboration that help TLE and D-Troy keep traffic flowing goods .
