“For reasons of force majeure, the terms and deadlines of the Secretariat of Infrastructure, Communications and Transportation and the Federal Civil Aviation Agency are suspended, from October 24, 2022 to December 31, 2022”, says the document.

It was just on October 24 when the agency announced that it was the victim of a cyber attack. The person in charge of the SICT office, Jorge Nuño, reported last week that 110 computers had been compromised.

Due to this, the Secretariat adhered to the Homologated National Protocol for Cyber ​​Incident Management and implemented actions to safeguard systems and information, including the suspension of procedures.

In terms of civil aeronautics, the procedures related to authorizations, permits, programs, accreditations, issuance of licenses and capacity certificates issued or granted by the AFAC are suspended.

The General Directorate of Federal Motor Transport suspended the procedures for the issuance and renewal of the Federal Driver’s License, as well as the procedures for the issuance of permits for federal motor transport, private transport and its ancillary services.

Permits that expire on these dates will be automatically extended until December 31, the agency added.

The impacts that may result in the distribution of supplies and merchandise that are required daily by industry, commerce and consumed by families in México; in delaying the entry of new vehicles to the sector, and consequently putting more pressure on inflation towards the end of the year are not minor, says the Chamber of the Transformation Industry, when setting its position on the federal decision.

“México is going through an economic recovery and we are on the verge of a time of high consumption that requires a strong mobilization of merchandise. Every day there is a need for more trucking service that can meet the national demand and that of global chains; That is why the decision to temporarily suspend the terms and deadlines in the SICT confuses the sector by putting the supply to production and consumption centers at risk,” he said.

CAINTRA made a call to the federal authorities involved to generate an emerging plan for early or parallel reactivation that would allow the processing of procedures to be maintained.

“Stopping the growth of the transport sector for two months would cause a tsunami of paperwork and pending as of January 1, 2023, without the ability for the authority and businessmen to have a timely exit in the short term; in addition to the accumulated economic and logistical complications”, warns the body that Rodrigo Fernández Martínez directs as president.
