HOW IS THE OBLIGATION OF CARGO GENERATORS TO REPORT FREIGHT VALUE TO THE RNDC OPERATING TODAY?
WHY REPORT THE VALUE OF FREIGHT?
According to the recent Resolution No.20223040045515, dated August 5, 2022, the Superintendency of Transportation regulated the obligation of cargo generators established in Decree 2228 of 2013. This decree stipulates that every importer, exporter, or logistics operator who contracts and pays for transportation services from a transport company must, through their own user account and password, inform the Ministry of Transportation via the RNDC platform about the agreed freight value with their transport provider.
WHO DOES AND WHO SHOULD NOT REPORT?
While it is true that the initial regulation, which gave legal life to the aforementioned obligation, did not provide extensive details on its execution, with the update of obligations in the National Cargo Dispatch Registry (RNDC), a timeframe for fulfilling the reporting obligation was established. In other words, as of the current date, all cargo generators must make this report within 5 business days following the completion of the service or the transportation of goods.

Despite the above, the regulation has established an exception for complying with the freight reporting obligation. This exception occurs in cases where there is an agreement between the cargo generator and the transport company for a timeframe in which the former is to make payment for the service, which is different from or exceeds 5 business days. In such situations, this second mutually agreed timeframe will be considered for fulfilling the duty of reporting the freight within the same period.
