In this sense, it is necessary to know for sure what this document is about and how it affects industries.
What is the Carta Porte complement?
The Carta Porte complement is a legal, fiscal and digital document, whose objective is to provide support to economic activities related to transportation within Mexico. Having this adaptation is essential since the authorities could request it in transactions carried out on Mexican land.
Therefore, it is defined as the essential tool that guarantees the sending and receiving of the merchandise. In other words, the Carta Porte complement is a document that confirms that there is a contract in the transport of merchandise, whether for the shipment, delivery or receipt of a tangible merchandise.
What are the benefits of the Carta Porte complement?
After the validity of this reform, several benefits arise for those who use it, among them we have:
- Greater confidence in Mexican legal transport companies.
- It can be determined in detail where it comes from and where it is going (indicated in the document).
- Specific information about the product, how to have it and protect it, as well as the assets that pass through the country.
- Complete information on the withholding of taxes corresponding to economic activities. So, you will be able to know the amount that is reflected in the CFDI.

- It is intended to regain strength in the formal market, thus allowing an open fight against informal trade and smuggling.
Please note that this legal document must be signed by the companies in question. The signature is accepted digitally or with a stamp.
The disadvantages of the Carta Porte complement for industries
One of the main qualities of SMEs is that they are not very formal in their processes. In addition, they reduce the hiring of talent that develops less frequent activities. Now, the Carta Porte complement is an additional requirement that makes them comply with the aforementioned.
Consequently, countless difficulties are indicated for these industries. The main limitation is that they are more restricted in terms of technological advancement and updating of their systems. However, we tell you other disadvantages:
1. Less flexibility of operation
Habitually, because they are smaller companies, they put mechanisms to the test to meet the requirements of their clients. It may be the case that there is some variation in terms of loads, so the Carta Porte complement will not match the total weight.
It could be due to the product being transported. Although it can also be provided by a change of routes, accidents or load transfers. Instead, it will also lose flexibility if the driver must be replaced due to an unforeseen event or illness.
2. Lack of technical requirements
There are cases where SMEs do not have much staff. It forces the loads to leave halfway, unload and return to look for the rest of the merchandise to return to the destination in question. So, the Carta Porte complement will not be reconciled with what happens.
3. Actual values are excluded
It is an obligation that this document indicates the total cost of the load, the routes to follow and what links were used. This information is imminent so that the authorities are alerted in the event of a possible robbery, theft or loss of transport that is fulfilling the economic activity.
How should industries act against the Carta Porte complement?
These small and medium-sized companies must find advice and support in the tax field, so they can face this Mexican economic reform. For their part, these industries must face the changes in the system, relying on the technology offered by other institutions.
In short, the economic future of the country will not depend only on government measures, it is also a task that everyone must undertake. Both public and private companies are responsible for the national economy.
The success of the new era is to achieve equal benefit for all, and it is the result of a country that makes an effort together with its economy.
