Changing Dynamics of Drug Trafficking Organizations in Mexico: Are you Prepared?

What are the impacts of drug trafficking organization related crime on business operations, human capital, and supply chains?

The dynamics of drug trafficking organizations (DTO) in Mexico have changed since the height of the drug war in the late 2000s. While violent crime has generally decreased along the US border, surging levels of homicide in the central and southwestern states suggest growing DTO activity in those areas.

Although foreign businesspeople visiting Mexico are rarely the targets of violent crime, anyone visiting the country for an extended period of time faces an elevated risk of assault, robbery, kidnapping, and extortion. DTOs also present a threat to business assets, as they frequently loot offices and warehouses and steal cargo from ports and freight trucks.
