This study explored how crowdsourced data can be used to better understand cross-border trips and travel patterns. Transportation officials can use these results to develop robust, data-driven policies regarding cross-border trips that, in turn, should make for more efficient, safe, and secure travel.
The impact of the recent United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) on the energy trade between the United States and Mexico—especially as it relates to transportation and logistics at border crossings—has not yet been fully measured. With so much at stake, understanding the potential impacts of this new agreement is crucial to both countries’ economies.
This research assessed the implications of the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) on energy trade between the United States and Mexico, as well as cross-border movements. Phase 1 presents a literature review to assess policy changes that could impact the energy trade between the two countries, collected the relevant data and developed a framework for scenario planning.
