Shipping companies and customs collaborate to streamline traffic in ports.

On September 16, the customs of the World Trade Bridge will modify its hours of operations because it is considered a non-working day -not a working day-, since this date marks 210 years since the beginning of the fight for the Independence of Mexico, confirmed the Association of Maquiladoras of Exportation of Nuevo Laredo.

The export schedule will be from 8:00 in the morning to 3:00 in the afternoon, while the import schedule will be from 8:00 in the morning to 4:00 in the afternoon.

In the case of the Puente de Colombia, it marks a non-business day, confirmed INDEX Nuevo Laredo.

For the customs of Bridge 3, the 16th is the sixth holiday during 2020, so it prepares to carry out operations with shortened hours in the cargo area. Since the beginning of January, the Nuevo Laredo Customs Administration announced the hours of operations for non-business days, a measure applied by the Tax Administration Service (SAT), so considering September 16 there are still six dates marked in the calendar, except for December 25 and January 1, when it will be closed.
