Logistics simplifies cross-border paperwork
Increased security means increased paperwork, especially when moving truck freight across the U.S.-Canadian border.
Web-based UPS BorderReady simplifies and speeds preparation and filing of eManifests, commercial invoices and government forms, including NAFTA documentation. Manual data-entry time goes down. Data quality goes up. You maximize efficiency and reduce the costs of U.S. Canada cross-border trade.
This powerful tool enables trade professionals to complete trade documentation with the ability to prepare cargo eManifests and commercial invoices using the same data. You then can submit these forms online to both U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).
This helps ensure compliance with both ACE and ACI programs. For highway carriers, direct submission means they can receive responses back in seconds. And issuance of entry numbers provides added visibility and confidence traveling to the border.
