UPDATE - Non-Carta Porte Compliant Shipments Destined for Mexico Held Beginning June 26

Jun 12, 2023

As communicated, the new Mexican Tax Authority (SAT) Carta Porte rules will require complete Carta Porte data on EDI 404/BNSF origin shipments and EDI 417/traffic received in interchange. BNSF will implement Carta Porte requirements on June 26, 2023, in advance of the official SAT implementation on August 1, 2023, to allow for adequate testing and ensure a smooth transition to the new process. Beginning June 26, BNSF may hold shipments non-compliant with the Carta Porte requirements at origin and/or reject shipments at interchange.

Please reference the BNSF General Shipping Instructions and Routing Materials to assist in adding Carta Porte information. Additional information about Carta Porte requirements can be found in the AAR Carta Porte Supplement. If you have questions, please get in touch with your BNSF marketing representative or BNSF Customer Support via Message Us or call (888) 428-2673 and, when prompted, say “Mexico Customs.”
