The Operation


The Operation, Tecate, Mexico

Infrastructure

A new four-lane highway to Tijuana will prove to be Tecate's greatest asset for future growth, as many maquilas fleeing Tijuana will still need to rely upon the supplier base in Tijuana. Lesser farm roads are often unpaved and truck slow-downs are quite common. Truck rates are similar to carriers in Tijuana, and vary from $1.50 - $2.00 US per mile and are negotiable. Regular freight and container rates are quite compared to the border cities and vary from $8.00 - $11.00 per ton per kilometer. There is a rail link from Tijuana to Tecate and other Mexican cities. Rates are published, spurs to several industrial parks are available. Water, electricity, and gas are available in the central industrial area and the two new business parks.


Customs

The crossing at Tecate is antiquated and quit limited. Most shelter operators and maquilas depend upon the new commercial crossing at Otay Mesa, trucking good production in Tecate to that location. The limited traffic does translate into fewer delays, although the crossing is not staffed adequately at all times.


Location

Tecate maquilas must rely upon Otay Mesa, Tijuana, and San Diego for developed airfield and transfer operations.


Taxes

Baja is considered a Free Trade Zone by the Mexican Government, a designation roughly similar to a US Foreign Trade Zone, Mauilas pay BCN State taxes, roughly 4% additional of the base wage pail per worker.
