What is the Complemento Carta Porte?
The Carta Porte, also known as Complemento Carta Porte, is a legal document of a declarative nature. It states the origin, location, precise destination and transport routes of goods moved nationally and internationally. This documentation can be used on land, river, or air transport. As for its format, the form can be submitted on paper or digitally through applications created for this purpose.
In addition to containing all the information regarding the commercial and logistics process, the Carta Porte has another purpose: to be a control instrument for the tax authorities. In some cases, it may be mandatory according to the regulations of the territory where the products are transported.
It is important to highlight that this document is born as a complement to the electronic invoice, as it provides more complete information in real-time about the products being moved.

For this reason, more and more governments are betting on the mandatory presentation of the Carta Porte. It has become a valuable tool for tracking the movement of goods.
