Since NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) came into existence in 1994, Canadian business has more than quadrupled. The Mexican market is extremely diverse, competitive and complicated if you are not set up properly conduct business. Mexico is Canada’s fifth largest export market and has become the third largest supplier of goods to the Canadian market after the United States and China according to the EDC Report “Doing Business in Mexico”.

Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada published a fact sheet on Canada being a priority market for Mexico along with key opportunities within the below priority sectors:

  • Oil and Gas
  • Mining
  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Information and Communications Technology
  • Infrastructure
  • Light Manufacturing

According to EDC Report, “Doing Business In Mexico”, it states that major developments have opened up the energy market which is expected to offer new opportunities to Canadian companies. This will end copyrights held by PEMEX (Mexican Petroleum) which relies heavily on imported products and services and the upgrades will allow the private sector to engage more thoroughly in exploration, drilling, production and refining while CFE (Federal Electricity Commission) whose goals are to expand power generation by using combined-cycle equipment, modernizing outdated electricity plants and switching to natural gas for power generation.

Having said this, shipments to Mexico are subjected to a strict customs mandate, even though the government has affirmed their desire for a less challenging border clearance process.

“SCACLI’s entry strategies into Mexico allow for seamless shipping logistics services to our customers” says Maria Misurka, SCACLI’s VP. “We partner with local agents to ensure smooth shipping logistics transitions; custom clearance, preparation and accuracy of import documents, and hassle-free delivery of shipments. We comply with customs regulations & security mandates as do our partners,” continues Misurka.

“Our clients have experienced a trouble free process because we have been shipping to Mexico and Latin America for years” says Misurka. For those who do not have any experience in shipping to Mexico, SCACLI will review your processes and educate you on the requirements and compliance in both countries giving you the advantage you need in today’s competitive market.
