Amplify Logistics has a team of dedicated border crossing experts and several customs gateway locations in Canada and the US. To determine whether your shipment has crossed the border, we will consider its origin and destination. We take measures to use direct routes for your cargo in order to guarantee an efficient and timely delivery service.
If you’d like to ship goods from the US to Canada, you may use a Canadian customs broker depending on where the goods will require customs clearance. Amplify Logistics is a cross border shipping company offering broker-inclusive services to our clients who are in this business. Our goal is to provide simple and efficient cross-border transportation for our clients.
Can you select a forwarding agent and customs broker from a list and provide the details on the bill of lading?
It’s important for the client/representative to contact the forwarding agent and customs broker to set up an account. If a proper relationship is not established at the beginning, you’re likely to experience delays in international shipping.
The amount you pay for duty and taxes will depend on your cargo. This amount is billed by your customs broker and reported to customs on your behalf.
There is a standard coverage offered against losses or damages and this will vary depending on the weight of your cargo. However, you can still request for additional insurance coverage.
The shipping costs will depend on your pricing plan. We’re happy to discuss this in detail if you reach out to our team directly.
At the minimum, you will be required to provide a commercial invoice, packing list and bill of lading. The documents should be provided to us when we pick your shipment. In some cases, additional documents may be required. If this is the case, you can get a customs broker to help you prepare these documents. Customs brokers can help to prepare documents such as the export licence which is necessary when transporting regulated cargo such as alcohol and firearms. It’s important to communicate with the freight forwarding agent and ask about all documentation required beforehand.
• Ensure that all the information about the product is provided before shipping it for the first time. This includes information regarding the components that make up the product and manufacturing process.
• In some cases, it can be helpful to ship a product sample in advance so that it undergoes the necessary inspection and classification. This can help to avoid unnecessary delays in cross border shipping in Toronto.
• Ensure products are properly classified before shipping. Classification of products can take a long time depending on the complexity of the item being shipped.
