Generally, at the Mexico border, two days are considered for the crossing. However, the time that cargo takes to clear customs and cross the border can depend on many factors—the lack of required documentation or the delivery of documentation with errors can delay the border-crossing process.

This means that during the border-crossing process, the drayage company will take the trailer across the border to a transload facility, where the load is going to be transferred from the Mexican trailer to a US trailer. The US trailer will complete the transportation of the goods until the final destination. STG is equipped to handle the entire process.

The vast majority of LTL freight and truckload shipments to Canada clear at the border under a process referred to as the Pre-Arrival Review System (PARS). PARS allows the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to review in advance of the freight’s arrival. The PARS process speeds up customs clearance and alleviates congestion at the border.

Yes. Even though the shipment information has been sent via PARS and accepted by CBSA, Canada customs agents have the right to inspect a shipment.
