Are your shipments being held up at the border? According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), incomplete paperwork and missing documentation are the top reasons shipments are delayed at the border. As many businesses have learned first-hand, these oversights can be frustrating, stressful and costly—and also avoidable.

During this webcast Purolator's experts will detail changes in U.S. and Canadian customs practices that allow U.S. businesses faster access to the Canadian market, including opportunities to 'level the playing field' with Canadian competitors.

Key takeaways include:

  • Shipments lacking complete documentation, including tariff code assignment and "other government department (OGD)" permits, will be delayed.
  • Businesses can qualify for expedited clearance through "trusted trader" programs.
  • U.S. businesses that register as "Non-Resident Importers" can, in many ways, compete on an even level with Canadian competitors.
  • Opportunities exist for businesses to minimize fees and duty obligations
  • Proper recordkeeping is essential. Both CBP and CBSA have increased the number of audits conducted annually.
