The Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) is reminding carriers about the upcoming Free and Secure Trade (FAST) event being hosted by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at the Detroit, MI, port of entry from April 17 – April 21.
CTA is encouraging carriers and their drivers to register for this event as soon as possible to ensure your preferred interview slot and your ability to expedite the FAST approval process.
The enrollment event is open to all conditionally approved applicants, including both new applicants and renewing members. Interviews are available to be scheduled immediately through the Trusted Traveler portal.
Additional FAST blitzes are also being planned at the Detroit port of entry for May and September, with further events potentially taking place at the Buffalo and Champlain ports of entry later this year. Further information on these upcoming events will be available when details are finalized.
Current FAST members are also being reminded to renew their cards through the online portal prior to the expiration date to maintain their FAST privileges.
CTA is reminding potential applicants, that if they enter the United States to complete their interview, they must meet all applicable travel requirements.
