Transport in Mexico, while strategic to North American trade, presents a number of common challenges that require expert management and careful planning. 

Road infrastructure, while well-developed in the main industrial areas, can be patchy in more rural regions, which can affect the punctuality and safety of deliveries. 

Customs regulations and administrative processes are another major obstacle: bureaucratic complexities and strict controls can lead to delays and additional costs if formalities are not properly managed. 

In addition, safety remains a major concern, particularly with regard to cargo theft and organized crime along transport routes. 

Companies therefore need to invest in robust security measures, such as GPS tracking and secure escorts, to protect their goods. 

Mexico's varied climate, from hurricanes to extreme heat, can also pose logistical problems, requiring tailored solutions to ensure the integrity of the products being transported. 

Finally, coordination with local authorities and the management of special permits for non-standard transports add a further layer of complexity. 

Transport BTI, with its local expertise and specialized resources, is well equipped to overcome these challenges, offering customized logistics solutions that guarantee safe, compliant and efficient shipments to and through Mexico.

For the transport of goods to Mexico, several essential documents are required to ensure full compliance with customs regulations and facilitate border crossing. Here is a list of the main documents required.

Bill of Lading

This document serves as proof of contract between the shipper and the carrier. It details the goods carried, the conditions of carriage, and the parties involved.

Commercial Invoice

The commercial invoice is a key document detailing the transaction between sender and receiver. It includes information such as description of goods, quantities, unit and total values, as well as terms and conditions of sale.

Packing List 

This document provides a detailed description of the goods, including the dimensions, weight and packaging of each item or package. It helps customs authorities verify the contents of the shipment.

Certificate of Origin 

The certificate of origin attests to the country of origin of the goods. It is often required to benefit from preferential tariffs under trade agreements such as the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (U.S.-Canada).

Specific permits and licenses 

Certain types of goods, such as food products, chemicals or medical equipment, may require specific permits or licenses. These documents vary according to the nature of the goods and the regulations in force.

Export Declaration

For high-value or restricted shipments, an export declaration may be required. It informs the customs authorities in the country of origin about the details of the export.

Certificates of conformity and inspection 

Depending on the nature of the goods, certificates of conformity or inspections by approved bodies may be required to prove that products comply with current standards and regulations.

Specific transport documentation 

Additional documents may be required depending on the mode of transport chosen (road, sea or air). For example, an ocean bill of lading for sea freight, or an airway bill for air freight.

Transport BTI helps its customers prepare and manage all these documents to ensure full compliance and facilitate the customs process.
