A first-of-its-kind agreement could make the East Valley a major international trading hub.
SkyBridge Arizona has made arrangements to set up a joint customs center with U.S. and Mexican officials at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. That will expedite the ability of U.S. companies to export goods to Mexico and beyond without additional hassles once reaching their final destination.
Aides to the governor said this is the result of “historic agreements” signed between officials of the two countries that will create “America’s first and only inland international air logistics and processing hub with Mexico.”
What will be set up is similar to existing operations along the border in places like Nogales.
