CARM – Register Now to avoid shipping delays

CARM – Register Now to avoid shipping delays - Route Newsletter: January 2024

CARM (CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management) Release 2, scheduled for release in May 2024 requires ALL importers to register in the CARM Client Portal no later than May 2, 2024, and delegate authority to their Customs Broker. Those importers who have not registered by May 2, 2024 will no longer be able to import goods into Canada.

From the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), “CARM is here now. Before May 2024, importers and other trade chain partners need to register and adapt their systems and business practices. Getting aligned with CARM now will help you avoid interruptions and delays later.”

Visit Universal Logistics’ website to learn more about CARM and to watch videos to help walk you through the CARM registration process.
