The Canadian Trucking Alliance was educated that CBSA will be broadening the 90-day truck turnaround alternative for major ACI AMPS punishments, until midnight on Dec 31, 2017 in the roadway mode.
CTA proposed a few arrangements which would enable transporters to stay away from major financial punishments, including giving drivers the alternative to restore their truck to the U.S. for specific infringement, for example, inability to submit ACI information. CBSA consented to execute the choice if consistence rates kept on enhancing and not relapse. Based on feedback from CBSA, ACI compliance has been very stable over the course of the last 90 days, and carriers showed strong progress to ensure compliance is being met.
“CTA appreciates CBSA extending the turnaround option and we look forward to continuing to work with CBSA in the coming months,” says CTA president Stephen Laskowski. “Finding a balance between fairness for carriers and the need to ensure high compliance levels will be the top priority moving forward.”
CTA and CBSA have formed a working group with representation from carriers across the country to address industry concerns, such as AMPS penalty levels. The first AMPS working group meeting took place earlier this week, with additional meetings scheduled over the next few months.
