A Domestic Transhipment Request (DTR) is an electronic request for approval to move uncleared cargo between two Customs bonded locations.

 

Note: DTR for cargo arriving via sea freight will be not become a requirement until July 2023.  DTR for air freight is already a requirement when cargo is being moved under bond.
