CBP Announces Changes for Expedited Border-Crossing Program for Truckers
U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced today that current members of the Free and Secure Trade frequent border crosser program (FAST), can now create an account online through the Global Online Enrollment System (GOES) on CBP's web site.
The FAST program is available to drivers crossing the borders between the U.S. and Canada or Mexico.
Creating an online account on GOES will allow FAST members to update their personal information and mailing address. Members are encouraged to update their contact information by February 1, 2009 since new replacement cards will be mailed in spring 2009.
Current U.S.-Canada FAST members will receive their new FAST cards by mail at the address previously provided. U.S.-Mexico FAST members will be notified by telephone when to pick up their new card at their local enrollment center.
