Due to high levels of pollution in Mexico City, trucks cannot enter the city from 6:00am to 10:00 am.  This new initiative currently remains in effect until June 30, 2016.

However, it is likely that the restriction will become permanent.  Affected shipments are those destined for Mexico City, Morelos, Queretaro, Hidalgo and Toluca.

Trucks that are in Mexico City during these restricted hours have to do a complete stop and wait until 10:00 am.  We are working with our vendors and pass through the restricted area outside of the restricted hours.  For the full details of this announcement please visit this website (text is in Spanish).

Can we create a resource page with our other info on VGM and updated info on VGM?

Truck Power

Truck Power across the USA to perform import store door deliveries and export door pickups is adequate except for certain ports where terminal congestion is causing delays, especially in Oakland.

  • There is a shortage of trucking companies willing to dray hazardous containers.
  • There are no truck power issues in Canada or Mexico.
  • Please see our Truck Power Map on for more information regarding advance timing required for door movements.
