UPDATE: Border Crossing Delays Affecting Lime Shipments
April 16, 2019
Mexican lime shipments into the U.S. are below normal levels; supplies are extremely limited. Prices are rising.
Volume into the U.S. is down; supplies are taking longer than normal to cross
The allocation of Custom and Border Patrol Agents is causing major truck delays at the borders; there isn’t enough staff to meet border demand
Expect longer delays due to Holy Week traffic (April 14 through April 20)
Stocks will remain tight and prices will be elevated for the next one to two weeks
