Carta Porte is a key requirement for making the transportation of goods in Mexico more efficient and transparent, especially amid the rising trend of nearshoring.  

In September 2023, the Servicio de Administración Tributaria (SAT) introduced Complemento Carta Porte version 3.0, an updated version to make processes easier and ensure compliance with regulations.  

But what exactly is Carta Porte, and why is it so important for the logistics industry? Let’s explore its significance and the benefits it provides. 

What is Complemento Carta Porte (CCP)? 

Complemento Carta Porte is a document required by Mexican law for transporting goods within Mexico. It acts as proof that validates the movement of cargo, providing detailed information about the merchandise, the people involved in the logistics operation, and the means of transportation used. Properly issuing and completing a Carta Porte is essential to comply with current regulations and standards. 

For example, consider a company shipping electronics from Mexico City to Monterrey. The Carta Porte for this shipment would include details about the electronics being transported, the shipping company, the driver and the truck being used. This document ensures that all parties are following the regulations, making the transportation process secure and reliable. 

What has changed for Complemento Carta Porte 3.0? 

The latest update of Carta Porte, version 3.0, introduces several important changes to make transporting goods more efficiently: 

  1. 1. More Detailed Information: The updated version requires more comprehensive details about the goods being transported, including precise descriptions, quantities and value, ensuring all parties have accurate information about the shipment.
  2. 2. Sender and Recipient Information: Carta Porte 3.0 mandates more detailed information about the sender and recipient of the goods, improving tracking and accountability while reducing the risk of errors and fraud.
  3. 3. Route and Destinations: The new version requires detailed documentation of the route and destinations, including the exact starting point, any stops along the way and the final destination, which helps in planning and monitoring the shipment more effectively.
  4. 4. Operator Information: There is now a requirement for detailed information about the operators involved in the transportation process, including the driver’s credentials and the vehicle’s details, enhancing accountability and security.
  5. 5. Digital Documentation: Carta Porte 3.0 supports digital documentation, making it easier to issue, track and store these documents, which reduces paperwork, minimizes the risk of document loss and speeds up the process.
  6. 6. Compliance and Oversight: The updated version includes measures to ensure better adherence to regulations, with enhanced oversight mechanisms to monitor compliance with legal standards, promoting a safer and more reliable logistics environment.

These changes represent a significant step forward in improving transparency, control and efficiency in the transportation of goods in Mexico. By promoting adequate regulatory compliance and enhancing security in logistics operations, Carta Porte 3.0 helps create a more reliable and optimized supply chain.
