Lance Jungemeyer, Fresh Produce Assn. of the Americas, a non-profit trade group of more than 100 members who are involved in the growth, harvest, import and distribution of the finest produce from Mexico.  He says trucking is at the heart of the industry, and “speed” is of the utmost concern.  He says the upgrade to the Mariposa POE continues.  He said two additional lanes will be added to the four existing lanes while construction continues.  Ultimately, there will be eight lances at this port, he says.
