U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) today released for publication in the Federal Register a general notice announcing plans to conduct a pilot test program to allow a new payment option for commercial truck single-crossing user fees.
According to the CBP notice [PDF 185 KB], regulations specify the applicable user fee for commercial trucks upon arrival into the United States and the methods of payment, including payment on an annual basis or payment on a “per crossing” basis. Although commercial truck carriers can electronically prepay the user fees on an annual basis, carriers who opt for the single-crossing user fee must pay the fee upon arrival at a U.S. port of entry.
The CBP pilot test program will allow the owner, agent or person in charge of a commercial truck to prepay the single-crossing user fee online prior to arrival at a port of entry. This pilot test does not affect the annual payment option.
