Fast-track your Canada customs entries and filings

Embark on a journey of efficiency and precision for your Canada customs entries and filings. In a world where time is of the essence, our support of the following importation strategies can streamline the process without sacrificing compliance.

Canada Customs Invoice (CCI)

Avoid freight delays by properly completing your commercial invoice and/or CCI. Our experts can help ensure all the comprehensive shipment details are in place before submitting to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) for review.

Certificates of Origin

Certificates of origin play a pivotal role in optimizing duty savings within the framework of Canada's numerous free trade agreements. We go beyond mere documentation, thoroughly examining these agreements to identify duty reduction or exemption opportunities.

Bill of Lading (BOL)

Not only does your BOL confirm receipt of goods, but it also represents the movement of shipments and points of transshipment  between parties. Minimize risks with expert oversight to verify accuracy, compliance, and completeness of these essential documents.

Manifest or Cargo Control Document

Since these documents play a vital role in your customs clearance process, providing precise information is key. Get help with manifest and cargo control documents to ensure your carriers can deliver an accurate list of contents to CBSA.
