CBP Announces Cross-Border Truck User Fee Contingency Plan for January 2009

From Strasburger & Price's Logistics Blog:

U.S. Customs & Border Protection (“CBP”) has announced that every truck entering the U.S. in 2009 must pay a fee of $10.75 per crossing or be equipped with a transponder, good for a year, which will cost $205. CBP has been working on a project which would allow motor carriers to renew their current transponders electronically (known as “DTOPS”), but DTOPS was not available for this year’s transponder renewal period. Many carriers have ordered their new transponders for 2009 but have not yet received them.

Facing the prospect starting in January of having to pay the per crossing fee until CBP made the new transponders available, the industry asked the agency to adopt a back-up plan. CBP has agreed that during the month of January a truck crossing into the U.S. will not have to pay the per crossing fee if it can show possession of one of the following: i) a 2008 transponder; ii) a receipt downloaded from the DTOPS website showing the 2009 transponder has been ordered, iii) a paper receipt from CBP showing the carrier filed its renewal on paper; or iv) any other evidence that the 2009 transponder for the truck has been ordered.
