Single Rail Manifest
Unifies data contained in the cargo manifests, allowing carriers to submit
information to Customs authorities in Mexico and the United States (SAT and
CBP) simultaneously in electronic format.
Enables customs authorities of both countries to perform joint risk assessment.
Additionally, traders will benefit from having an identical format to convey
information, resulting in faster and less expensive procedures.
• Rail freight. A pilot program is being deployed for northbound traffic (from
Mexico to the US) at Nogales, Sonora – Nogales, Arizona, and at Mexicali, Baja
California – Calexico, California. It is expected to be operating by the end of
2014.
• Land cargo: The Mexican Revenue Service (SAT) will develop a manifest for
truck cargo, starting with northbound traffic. Pilot testing will start in 2016.
• Sea and air cargo: Pilot testing of harmonized manifests is expected to begin
in 2015.
7
Cargo Pre-inspection
• CBP and SAT will conduct a joint inspection at a single checkpoint, facilitating
customs clearance.
• The project includes three initial pilots:
 Laredo (Texas) Airport to clear air cargo destined to 7 Mexican airports.
 Tijuana Port of Entry, at Mesa de Otay, to clear agriculture products.
 “Foxconn” facilities, near Ciudad Juárez Port of Entry, to clear computer
shipments.

Authorized Economic Operator- Mexico
• AEO
Mexico certifies manufacturing
enterprises, shippers (transporters) and
customs brokers. In the near future, the
program will extend to other parties in the
supply chain to include industrial parks,
port operators and couriers.

clearance for AEO Mexico and US.
Benefits are divided in four stages:
1. Reaching Customs facilities.
2. Entering Customs facilities.
3. Inspection and verification at Mexican ports of entry.
4. Inspection and verification at CBP.

Mutual Recognition Agreement
•
Mexico has the most solid Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) in
Latin America. Therefore, various countries have approached Mexico
with the intention of subscribing a Mutual Recognition Agreement
(MRA).
•
An MRA allows for the recognition between the AEOs of two countries
and the compatibility of their respective levels of exigency. Both parties
in an MRA recognize their counterpart as reliable, promoting the
development of new supply chains between the two Nations.
•
On March 11th, the MRA between Mexico’s and Korea’s AEOs was signed,
constituting the first MRA in Mexico and Latin America.
•
We are currently completing the last phase in the negotiation to
subscribe a similar agreement with the United States of America’s CTPAT program. Once this agreement is formalized, the benefits for
certified enterprises that take part in foreign trade with the US will be
tangible.

Facilitation Strategies for Passengers
Improved Passenger Inspection
A new procedure was recently implemented in 12 airports, by which baggage
inspection is done using X-ray equipment, and only if the automated selection
device requires it, reducing the time for passenger customs clearance.
Trusted Traveler Program (Viajero Confiable)
A Trusted Traveler will be able to clear immigration and customs through
special desks located at the Mexico City, Cancun and Los Cabos airports. By
June 30th, there were 468 members of the program.
Payment of duties for exceeding personal exemption at point-of-sale
(POS) terminals
By June 30th, 125 POS terminals have been installed in 46 Ports of Entry across
the Country, registering a total of 44,569 operations that equal 3.7 million
dollars in revenue collection.
