Currently there are significant delays in Inland shipments in Mexico.
For "Single" container transports, the average transport time to and from seaports is between 72-96 hours, for "tandem" container transports between 24-72. Always assuming the availability of trucks and compliance with weight specifications. The causes are:
- Heavy rains causing interruptions in import and export of goods,
- Staff shortages between 10% - 15% due to the corona virus,
- Lack of available containers in the hinterland and consequently increasing need of pick-up of empty containers from seaports,
- Blockade of the main rail connection to the port of Lazaro Cardenas due to strikes, resulting in a switch to road transport.
