The U.S. and Mexico traded $534 billion worth of goods and services in 2014. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) continues to boost cross-border opportunities, making Mexico the second-largest export market for the U.S.
Companies capitalize on the 2,000-mile border between the countries to move 80 percent of the goods traded between the nations with low-cost trucking. Some $1.4 billion in goods crosses the border daily.
Production-sharing is a popular business model for American and Mexican companies, allowing U.S. manufacturers to make 40 percent of the components of goods imported from Mexico. This means that 40 cents on every dollar spent on Mexican imports actually stays in the US supporting local jobs and export activity.
