Staten Island, New York (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
The Canadian government has been making many efforts to keep trade strong with all of the various countries in Latin America. Initiatives like Export Development Canada are promoting investment in countries like Mexico, with popular reefer truck-fulls of fruits and vegetables coming in return. There are entire segments of the government site that explain how they can help companies shipping to Mexico.
It is not unusual for governments to take steps to help local companies invest abroad and promote trade with other countries. Canada is likely trying to make sure trade is as high as possible given their strong dollar. With every new Canadian company shipping to Mexico with such a strong dollar, there is more value brought back to Canada for less. Exports tend to fall during periods where a county's currency gains relative worth, and the effort to increase trade is one way of try to offset this trend and maximize this period in the Canadian economy.
Canadians have been trading with Mexico for a long period of time, with agricultural products becoming far more popular with the invention and spread of reefer trucks. For those who don't know, reefer trucks are designed with refrigeration units and are mainly used to bring cold or frozen goods without as much fear of expiration. Latin American Cargo has specialized trucks like these and others including flatbeds and more traditional full trailer loads.
Since Latin American Cargo has been on the front lines of the huge amounts of trading going on between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada, they have been in a position to see exactly how trends have changed. With most countries suffering in the fallout of the 2008 financial collapse, Canada, who still had a strong economy, became more of a central figure for trade in the Americas. With a strong dollar and with other economies faltering, Canada is boosting trade and making an effort to make the most out of this situation. Increased shipping to Mexico is just one aspect of a complex and concerted effort to make the Canadian economy even stronger.
