CANACAR v. United States of America

CANACAR, a trade association representing individual carriers within the Mexican trucking industry, alleges that the U.S. Department of Transportation restricts Mexican carrier operations in the United States and Mexican investment in U.S. carriers in violation of NAFTA Article 1102 (national treatment) and Article 1103 (most-favored-nation treatment). CANACAR also alleges that the United States has failed to comply with a 2001 NAFTA Chapter 20 arbitral decision, In the Matter of Cross-Border Trucking Services, in violation of NAFTA Article 1105 (minimum standard of treatment under international law).

The United States intends to defend this claim vigorously.
