C-TPAT is the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism. C-TPAT certification means that North Trans Logistics requires little cargo inspections when crossing the border. In those rare instances where inspection is necessary, C-TPAT certification gives North Trans Logistics priority status. All of this translates into shorter delays at the border and faster delivery of your goods. It also means your shipment is more secure and transported safely to where you need it.
The Automated Commercial Environment is a US Customs and Border Protection program to eliminate paperwork, reduce hold-ups and hassles, and speed up trade across the border. North Trans Logistics is part of this automated system that ensures our compliance with US laws and regulations, meaning that our trucks are far less likely to be inspected or delayed at the border. Your goods move quicker and with greater certainty to their destination.
North Trans Logistics is a bonded carrier certified with both the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and US Customs & Border Protection. This means your goods are safely and securely transported across Canada and the United States, with no unnecessary delays, hidden fees, or hassles. Better yet, being a bonded carrier means we can use shortcuts through both Canadian and US “corridors”, allowing your freight to be delivered faster.
The Advance Commercial Information (ACI) program allows for much quicker delivery of goods into Canada. This is done by sending information regarding your shipment to the border agents before the carrier arrives, thus saving a great deal of hassles and time at the border. With ACI, along with our other certifications, you can rest assured that North Trans Logistics is bringing your goods across the border as fast as possible.
