DETROIT— U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Office of Field Operations allows commercial truck carriers to prepay the single-crossing user fee online prior to arriving at the border.

Carriers and their agents can make single-crossing user fee payments online through the Decal/Transponder Online Procurement System (DTOPS) website.

“Paying the single-crossing user fee online, prior to arriving at the border may help commercial drivers reduce fuel consumption and help avoid unnecessary wait times at the border.” Said Port Director Devin Chamberlain, “this could help cut down on overall costs for carriers.”

Cash and credit card payments will still be accepted at the border, but carriers who pay upon arrival may experience additional processing delays.
