Recently, the United States, Canada, and Mexico reached an agreement to revise the 25-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The USMCA, or “NAFTA 2.0.,” has been finalized, and in this updated agreement, the goal is to have more car and truck parts made in North America to qualify for zero tariffs. Ultimately, the USMCA will require the supplier-to-OEM relationship to be much stronger and closer than in the original NAFTA.
