MORE BORDER HASSLES FOR B.C. TRUCKERS

SURREY, B.C. — The elimination of 2ITN PARS bar codes and manifests is causing headaches for some trucking companies, primarily at the Pacific Highway crossing.

The B.C. Trucking Association (BCTA) and the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) have teamed to deal with the problem, which arose when some primary carriers were no longer allowed to share their Customs Carrier Code with their smaller contracted fleets.

As a result, primary carriers aren’t always receiving information about releases of shipments from their independent operators electronically.

The problem was discussed in a recent conference call involving the BCTA, CTA and Canada Customs. Canada Customs has agreed to develop a proposal that would be aimed at solving the problem.
