On Monday, October 23, Mexico’s Federal Government issued an official decree that adds additional permit requirements to the importation of products that include, but are not limited to, certain types of gasoline, diesel, biodiesel, crude petroleum or bituminous mineral oils, fuel oils, petroleum coke, certain chemicals and other petrochemical products.

As a result of this action, CPKC has placed an embargo on impacted STCC codes until such time importers utilizing CPKC service verify possession of the applicable import permits.  Please reference Railinc for specific commodity information: https://embargo.railinc.com/#/embargo/searchEmbargo
