Country: Mexico

GCCF completed a Border Verification Summary Report that included information on border crossing issues, shippers, inspectors, cold storage facilities, problems & proposed solutions, importers, distributors, and shippers. The intent was to conduct an analysis of perishable product movement from Laredo, TX, to Nuevo Laredo, Mexico; to photo document any apparent temperature abuse and handling abuse issues associated with trans-loading of U.S. products at the border crossing; and to work in harmony with U.S. suppliers to track perishable product movement in trans-loaded containers at the Laredo/Nuevo Laredo border crossing.
