Program to provide registration and fuel tax for Mexico motor carriers

by Canadian Shipper

The U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is awarding a purchase order to the National Governor’s Association (NGA) so it can develop and implement a program to provide the required registration and fuel tax credentials to Mexico carriers wishing to do business beyond the commercial zone in the United States.

The International Registration Plan (IRP) and the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) are base-state agreements in use by the US and Canada, whereas Mexico provides its motor carriers the credentials they need for access to Mexican highways through a federal entity.

The unique position of the NGA as the association of Governors for all the states, their experience in the issues associated with state based activities, and their specific experience in IRP and IFTA matters make them the only known source with a combination of skills and abilities to provide this service, says the FHWA.

The anticipated award date is on or about August 8, 2002.
