CBSA eliminates unfair tariff for Canadian carriers

OTTAWA, Ont. -- The Canadian Trucking Alliance is breathing a sigh of relief as it welcomes an announcement from the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) eliminating a controversial tariff.

Tariff Item 9801.10 prevented Canadian carriers from bringing US trucks or trailers used strictly in cross-border operations into Canada without first attracting duty and taxes on that equipment. It was a practice the CTA deemed “arcane.”

The lobby group has been appealing CBSA to scrap the tariff since it first became aware of the rule in 2004. Recently, some western Canadian carriers have faced a crackdown by CBSA that would have seen them face enormous costs, the CTA says.
