Traffic delays in Tijuana due to lack of infrastructure create long
delays for Trucks to reach the Customs Facilities.

clear the entire Customs Process
Serious delays are also encountered during peak traffic hours
on the US side to reach the Port, Rail and Distribution Facilities
In the Los Angeles area.
