Carta Porte #17 –EDI validations on hold

March 25, 2022

Attention EDI users,

We communicated on Wednesday, March 23rd our phased approach plans for validation of EDI related to Carta Porte. At this time, the first phase (previously planned for Sunday, March 27th, 2022), is on hold. We will communicate with you our new schedule for the phased approach to EDI validations as soon as we have more information.  

All Carta Porte content, updates, dates, training material, links to resources and communications can be found on the dedicated Carta Porte page in our Rail Resource Center on our website. 

As a reminder, the Carta Porte requirements apply to all shipping companies (cargo airlines, trucks, maritime, railroads, etc.). This applies to cross-border, international, and Mexican domestic shipments. This supersedes any provision to the contrary that may exist in any rule, tariff, rate, or contract previously published or entered by KCSM.  

Should you have any questions on this program, please don’t hesitate to contact our KCSM Customers Solutions Center or your Sales Account Executive who will be happy to answer your questions.  

Thank you for being a loyal Kansas City Southern customer and we look forward to continuing to serve you.
