Easy Cross-Border Shipping Solutions
Navigating the process of LTL shipping between the USA and Canada can be relatively straightforward depending on the trucking company you choose to help ship your products.
CSA Transportation has customs coordinators on staff that team up with your customs broker to ensure a quick import / export process, and on-time cross-border trucking services.
With a CSA distribution center near most major border crossing sites, our specialized office of customer service experts makes it easy to ship from US to Canada—or from Canada to US—to ensure worry-free shipping every time you choose to book an order with us.
Please note: CSA is not the right choice to handle the shipment of your small package; this type of shipment is better served by a postal organization. We are primarily an LTL carrier and deal with pallet shipments, thank you for your understanding!

In-House Customs Coordinators
Though CSA is not a customs broker, we do employ in-house customs coordinators that work with your broker to help ensure smooth on-time delivery your freight to it's destination. This allows your business to focus on serving your customer while we handle the details required to ship Canada to U.S. or when shipping to Canada from USA.
ACE & ACI Pre-Clearance
Customs procedures in each country require the electronic receipt of dispatch and shipment information before your freight arrives at the border so it can pre-screened for acceptance. Our personnel have direct access to each countries Canada/USA Customs website to streamline this process on behalf of our customers. We also offer website account access so all you need to do is sign in, find, and select your most recent shipment from the options list—CSA's tracking portal gives you the tools you need to search your shipments fast, and send your customer a status update easily from the online menu.
Reduced Border Delays
The ACE/ACI "pre-screen" helps speed up border wait times since drivers only need to present customs officials with an ACE or ACI eManifest number that relates to all the shipments in their trailer.
CSA's Canadian terminals are bonded. This means USA to Canada shipping orders that experience customs clearance issues will in most cases not be rejected (turned back or held) at the border, but rather, will arrive as scheduled to a trusted CSA terminal to store until Customs officials can visit our distribution terminal to clear the items on site. This capability turns potentially large money burning delays—that can last days and drastically increase shipping costs—into small low cost incidents that typically still make your scheduled delivery day. Shipping between countries can be tedious but CSA helps keep your supply chain moving door to door when ever you call upon us.

Due to our extensive experience in shipping to Canada from USA and shipping to USA from Canada, CSA has built relationships with some of top customs brokers available. If you do not have a customs broker we would be happy to recommend one to you.
