Check Call: Modern problems require modern solutions with Anaid Chacón

Working together for a common goal.

Check Call the Show. News and Analysis for 3PLs and Freight Brokers.

On this week’s episode of Check Call, Anaid Chacón, head of product at Nuvocargo, joins host Mary O’Connell to dive into a world that exists with electronic data interchanges, application programming interfaces and AI in harmony. 

Key quotes from Chacón:

“There is definitely an overlap of things that affect cross-border and domestic shipments. At the end of the day, you have a shipment with three legs, two of them are domestic and one is the crossing piece. All of those trends like driver shortages and fuel prices are things that have affected people importing and exporting into Mexico. The one piece at the center of the conversation is border crossing and lack of visibility.”

“There is a new brand of the SAT, the ANAM, that is now focused on all of the digitization, including a new set of documents, with the goal to improve crossing times by about 50% and digitizing the workflow and RFID cards for trucks. They’re using the carrot, not only the stick, to drive actionability and adoption. If you’re able to comply with all of the regulations, they’re playing with how we give you better visibility and shorter border crossing times.”

“Not knowing there are avenues at your disposal to shorten your crossing times can hinder success. Particularly, the development of the ANAM is supposed to be responsible for collecting the taxes that happen at the border-crossing piece. The fact they’re operating independently can’t be underestimated and in terms of having an agency that is empowered to move faster on that, it should make the elements of digitization happen faster.”
