Important USMCA/NAFTA Announcement:

June 16, 2020



Please note that the NAFTA agreement between the United States, Canada, and Mexico is being replaced with the USMCA (USMCA/T-MEC/CUSMA) agreement on July 1, 2020. As of that date, the NAFTA Certificate of Origin will no longer be accepted for Customs Clearance.

ConnectShip is planning to release a software update by June 26, 2020, to add a new document for the USMCA Certificate of Origin as a Standard Document. The new document will use the current NAFTA fields in the Progistics system to populate the applicable fields on the document as many of the fields are interchangeable.

Note: Failure to update your Standard Documents with this the update will result in the NAFTA Certificate of Origin being produced and could delay Customs Clearance. Beginning July 1, 2020, you must generate the new USMCA document symbol in your shipping process to ensure the correct document is produced.
