Wonder why companies are moving south?
Note the economic part
Read the whole report...
Note on this one the reference to logistics issues...
You can throw numbers around anyway ya'll want to, but use some logic instead of statistics...if a company that is headquartered here, yet has manufacturering plants in Mexico(or further south) can ship parts brought in from elsewhere here (or in the slim chance the parts are made here) directly to their Mexican concerns and then bring those manufactured items directly back up here to their DC centers, they cut out the middle men and time lost ie: transfers at the border. (The carriers have seen this writing on the wall for the last several years and is one of the reasons why many are going to a more regional and intermodal operation) This of course increases their bottom lines. Right now, American truckers are bringing the things to and from the border...who is going to be cut out?
Then too, lets not forget the mega ports being planned for Mexico and which I think are under construction now if I remember right
...lots of freight will be coming here from there and then there is the Chinese who own/control the Panama canal and who've deepened it for container ships...the reasons behind TX superhighway, the plan for Mexican customs control of American freight along it and the new intermodel center in KC.
You think that Americans will be hauling those containers from the border to the intermodel center and back? Nope.
Anyone who does not think this will eventually cost American driving jobs is not looking behind the propoganda IMO.
