Seminar: Canadian Customs Compliance

Don't Let the Border Hinder Your International Shipments into Canada

Pacific Customs Brokers is offering a seminar on Canadian Customs Compliance to commercial/professional importers, non-resident importers, controllers, carriers, shippers and receivers. The seminar will focus on compliance and regulations of goods imported into Canada. This is a great opportunity for businesses with newly hired logistics staff to receive cost-effective training and/or refresh their awareness in the transportation industry. This session is open to business owners, operation managers, purchasers and warehouse managers. We will cover such topics as: customs regulations, required documentation, North American Free Trade Agreement eligibility and the logistics of seamless cross-border shipping. The knowledge gained at this seminar could directly affect your shipments crossing the border. Shipment delays and possible penalties issued by Canada Border Services Agency could be the result of not being informed. If you are importing goods on both sides of the border, we offer a full day seminar on both Canadian and U.S. Customs Compliance.
