Dear Friends and Customers: 

In response to continued interest by the Calexico and Mexicali Trade Community for expanded hours for southbound in-bond processing, the Calexico Cargo Facility will extend for an additional 60-days the pilot program expanding by two hours the operation for southbound in-bond processing.
 
In coordination with the Servicio de Administración Tributaria (SAT), U.S. Customs and Border Protection Cargo Facility will implement the addition of two hours Monday through Saturday for processing of Southbound in-bonds. This pilot program will continue in effect from October 1, 2021 and conclude on November 29, 2021. The 60-day pilot program will serve as means to assess the Trades need for expanded hours and overall traffic volumes for in-bond exportations during said period.
Southbound in-bond hours during 60-day pilot as follows:
 
Monday – Friday
8:00 am. – 5:30 pm
Saturday
10:00 am – 3:30 pm
 
An analysis will be conducted at the conclusion of the 60-day pilot to determine if extended hours will be adopted beyond the additional 60-day pilot timeframe.
There are currently no changes to any other previously approved hours of operation.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our offices

Dear Friends and Customers, 

We would like to inform the main points from the meeting between CBP- Calexico and representatives of Chambers and Associations from Baja California:

1. The joint inspection between Mexico and United States continues from Monday to Friday from 12:00pm to 8:00pm and Saturdays from 10:00am to 5:00pm.
2. A Whatsapp group and an app will be created in order to have better communication in case of any contingency and to forecast future activities.
3. Due to the migrants at this border, authorities will implement changes on CBP operation and dedicate resources to improve its flow by the end of the month. It is not known in what way the operation of the commercial area will impact.
4. The schedule for In- Bond operations that from August 2 is Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 5:30pm and Saturdays from 10:00am to 2:00pm, extends 60 additional days from September 30 as a result of the successful pilot. The increase of these operations were from 200 to 300, being a great help for the commercial flow. (Find attachment "Change in Hours of Operations").
5. Regarding the contingency plan in the systems, CBP is prepared to continue processing operations with three systems, as well as plants when a power failure occurs. To support the companies, the hours have been extended when they have had a contingency.
The SAT does not have an alternate power system in case of any failure.
6. Due to the high agricultural season of Mexicali in September- October, a fast line was proposed for companies that manage perishable products. This line is in Tijuana- Otay, so a replicate model was proposed in Mexicali.
