Mexican officials recently launched a monthly trucking industry report aimed at increasing transparency and providing vital data, said Julio Santaella, president of Mexico’s National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI).
The new “Administrative Registry of the Automotive Industry of Heavy Vehicles” will contain monthly data from trucking companies in Mexico, including information such as wholesale and retail sales, import and export figures, as well as monthly production totals.
“This will allow the sharing of information about the production and marketing of new heavy-duty vehicles, adding to the data on passenger vehicles that is already being provided by INEGI,” Santaella said during a videoconference Monday. “It will give a complete overview of the country’s total automotive industry and will support users from the public, private and academic spheres.”
Santaella said the new report is a collaboration among the Mexican government and Mexico’s National Association of Producers of Buses, Trucks and Tractor-trucks
