Emergency protocols have been put in place in order to address the significant supply chain disruptions caused by the flooding and landslides in British Columbia, Canada.
Many carriers are opting to route their goods through the United States in order to reach their Canadian destinations. To minimize delays and facilitate crossing, Canadian carriers are encouraged to follow standard procedures, including advanced filings of an electronic truck manifest and using an in-bond or in-transit transaction.
Below you will find details of the protocols in place through the customs authorities in Canada and the United States.
