Customs Notice on Repositioning Empty Container

Canada Border Services Agency

Canada Border Services Agency has released Customs Notice 19-03 to provide guidance to carriers that wish to reposition empty containers. The new Transportation Modernization Act now permits vessels of any registry to reposition empty containers they own or are leasing, between locations in Canada (on a non-revenue basis) without the requirement of obtaining a coasting trade licence. The provisions are retroactive to December 10, 2018. The Chamber of Shipping is seeking further clarification on the reporting requirements and will advise members accordingly.
