Transport Industry

In 2018, 53.9% of the trade was moved by freight trucks.

* National Autotransport Chamber:

In the 2018 government report, the growth of the sector in Mexico is highlighted:

“From January 2013 to June 2018, 2,897 million tons of cargo were transported by motor transport, a figure 10.8% higher than that recorded in the previous administration.”

However, the Chamber of Commerce detects several areas of opportunity for the sector, which must be worked together with the Government.

Challenges of the Transport Industry in Mexico

The transport industry in Mexico faces several challenges of different kind: high driver insecurity, low driver training (which causes road accidents), better facilities for cross-border transportation services, volatility in fuel costs, and lack of control in fuel expenditure.

The National Freight Transport Chamber detects that the direct costs rubric requires special attention, since diesel has increased 372% between 2004 and 2018, while the general inflation was only 76.8 percent.

With all this in mind, we detect the following challenges for the industry:


During 2018 the average diesel consumption in Mexico reached 334 thousand 200 barrels per day 

Energy Regulatory Commission


Reduce the onslaught of insecurity that affect drivers and financially impact transport companies.


Low guarantee in the supply of diesel and the increase in fuel costs.


Promote means of transport with high load capacity to make the transfer of goods more efficient and safe.


Training operators to obtain greater economic benefits.


Create more environmental impact reduction strategies.

Fuel use in the Transport Industry

In the transport sector, Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel is common. It is generally used in:

1. Cargo trucks

2. Tourist transport

3. Urban transport

4. Tractor trucks

In the industry, fuel consumption represents up to 44% of its total expenses, henceforth the importance of its availability and its cost optimization.
