Expectations

EXPECTATIONS

  • September 7, 2007

  • One Year Project

  • 100 Mexico-Domiciled Carriers

  • 500 Trucks

  • Demonstration project extended on August 6, 2008 for two additional years


Participation

PARTICIPATION

  • 29 Mexican carriers issued OP-1 operating authority

  • Minus 2 Minus 2 = 25 actual participants

  • 101 trucks

  • 85% of all trucks trips by the participants were within the border commercial zone


Why low participation

Why Low Participation

  • Uncertainty on whether the OP-1 operating authority granted under the demonstration project would continue

  • Additional costs of insurance for long-haul operations beyond the commercial zone

  • Participants had to operate under a single operating authority (i.e., could not have part of fleet with OP-1 for long-haul operations and part of fleet with OP-2 for operations only within the border commercial zones


Independent evaluation panel report to u s secretary of transportation october 31 2008

Independent Evaluation Panel ReporttoU.S. Secretary of TransportationOctober 31, 2008

  • Meaningful statistical evaluation is not possible because of the low level of participation and that most of the participating trucks operated within the commercial border zone

  • Participants had a lower out-of-service rate than US-domiciled trucks

  • No crashes involving Mexican carriers participating in the demonstration project


Conclusion

Conclusion

March 11, 2009

Fiscal Year Omnibus Appropriations Act signed by the President, which included a provision prohibiting FMCSA from spending any additional funds on the cross-border trucking demonstration project

FMCSA immediately issued letter to participants revoking their

OP-1 operation authority

FMCSA restored OP-2 operating authority for participants who had an OP-2 prior to the demonstration project
