WASHINGTON – The Canadian Trucking Alliance had a seat at the table in Washington this week to kick-off the perimeter vision discussions stemming from last year’s border agreement between Prime Minister Harper and President Obama.

While no major policies were announced, CTA said it was confident that details surrounding trusted trader programs, FAST cards, pre-inspection, pre-clearance, and RFID would be released soon.

The industry would be pressured to react to the changes quickly, said Jennifer Fox, vice-president of customs at CTA.

“Participation and input by industry over the next six months regarding these matters will be critical to their success,” she said.
