What is expedited/priority clearance?

Essentially, expedited or priority clearance is the process of getting your freight through customs ASAP. Around the world, the customs clearance process varies for every country. That’s why it’s important to partner with an experienced freight forwarder, like AIT, with expertise and existing in-country relationships. Learn more about customs clearance.

What is the Pre-arrival Review System (PARS)?

Simply put, the Pre-arrival Review System (PARS, for short) gives the Canadian government a heads-up on what freight will be entering their country. More specifically, PARS is a Canadian Federal Government customs program that allows importers, or customs brokers like AIT acting on their behalf, to submit cargo information to the Canada Border Services Agency for review and processing before their goods arrive in Canada. This state-of-the-art technology streamlines the flow of freight across the border. Learn more at pcb.ca.
