Five Tips to Streamline Mexican Import-Export Logistics

 

January 2014 marked the 20th anniversary of a key political achievement - the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Today, two decades after the trade pact was signed into law, some of the promised benefits materialized, while others are still emerging.
