What is involved in shipping between Canada and the US

To start shipping between Canada and the US, shippers must find a trusted cross-border logistics provider, customs broker, and provide documents to help ensure a seamless cross-border logistics experience.

While shipping from US to Canada via highway, importers can utilize a system called the Pre-Arrival Review System (PARS) that allows importers, carriers, and customs brokers to provide the shipment information to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) before arrival at the border. This helps to speed up the border crossing process while shipping from US to Canada.

The United States has a similar system for importers shipping from Canada to US called the Pre-Arrival Processing System (PAPS) through the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to help expedite border clearance for Canadian export shipments.
