Exit NAFTA. Enter USMCA — the new United States-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement. How does it affect shipments between the U.S. and Canada?
It took several years for the U.S., Mexico and Canada to agree on a replacement for the 30-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement. At last, though, the USMCA is in place. So what’s the difference between the two? Is USMCA nothing more than “NAFTA 2.0”? On this episode, we delve into the details with Chris Antonelli, district manager-west with Purolator. He sketches a picture of the trade and shipping landscape between the U.S. and Canada, and details some key differences in the way in which those two countries are served by logistics providers. While they share a number of attributes on the trade and logistics front, it would be a mistake to overlook their differences.
