CANADA CUSTOMS APPROVES C.T. TRANSPORT FOR EXPEDITED CLEARANCE
C.T. Transport L.P., a less-than-truckload Central Transport motor carrier in Canada, has been approved as one of the first carriers to participate in the Customs Self Assessment program.
The Canadian Customs and Revenue Agency implemented the CSA program in December to encourage companies to invest in proactive pre-customs clearance procedures. Through the program, importers can reduce costs and time at the border for Canadian customs compliance. CSA requires importers and carriers to complete a three-part application and approval process that includes a review of their corporate structure, security measures, accounting systems and business processes.
“Under the CSA program, importers are required to select approved carriers using registered drivers to import goods into Canada,” said Sandi Villeneuve, president of Central Transport’s customs affiliate.
Central Transport International Inc., and its affiliates market the Central Transport LTL service to more than 98 percent of major manufacturing and retail markets across North America.
