The first US/Mexico inland port is under construction in Phoenix. SkyBridge Arizona is on 360 acres southwest of the runway at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in Mesa, and will use Unified Cargo Processing to complete on-site cargo inspection and processing that will allow shipments between the U.S. and Mexico can be expedited directly to their destinations in Mexico.

“This is going to be a city-within-a-city. It is going to be a mixed-use development, and the main focus is going to be an inland port,” Rusty Martin, project executive at Graycor Construction Co., tells GlobeSt.com. “It is a unique situation, and it is the only one in the United States that have been approved. The idea is that Mexican customs will have a presence on the ground in the United States, and anyone that is shipping goods or product to Mexico could lease space on the property and run all goods through customs in the United States and then immediately ship it to its destination.”
