Mexican Border Issues effecting Nogales Produce

Mexican Customs in Nogales has been experiencing major delays due to a system wide software update in the whole country. As a result of this update, interruptions in the service have been experienced in Nogales. FPAA met this morning with CAADES and other local partners to address the issue.

As of late morning on January 12, 2016, FPAA has been told that Mexican Customs has addressed the software issue and that crossings have resumed.

In order to compensate for these delays and to facilitate a higher volume of crossings, FPAA has requested that SAT and US Customs authorize overtime of two hours per day until the software issue can be shown to be resolved.
