I would like to extend my best wishes for this year that just started, along with a hope for great success, health and harmony, and to exceed our own expectations.


For us, this is a very special year because Mexicom Logistics was born 10 years ago in Montreal QC. Throughout this time we have helped countless businesses grow, meeting their requirements in Canada and the USA. At the same time our company has been growing along with all these customers. We thank you for the support and the trust you have placed upon us.


With the recent announcement by the US DOT to finally open the border to Mexican Carriers, old debate that started 20 years ago will reopen. It is unclear whether it exist a genuine interest of carriers in both sides of the border to send their units and drivers to their neighboring country, modifying a formula that has worked for many years to exchange equipment or transshipment of goods at the border. No doubt there will be companies that want to take the opportunity, but the bulk of the competitors will not see any interest and will continue with the status quo in the future.


Time will tell if this was just an issue of negotiation from the Mexican government to pressure the US for tariff rates changes, or if it really is going to affect change in the way of moving goods between Mexico and the United States.





happy new year 2015!

Modern sound recordings usually involve tiny disks which can hold dozens of tracks, specially designed to be easily portable and convenient. The Maya may have had different priorities.
