CTA publishes guide to ease North American border crossings

The Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) has published a new industry guide to help take out the guesswork involved in crossing the North American borders. The updated version of a 1995 booklet provides easy-to-read and practical information on immigration, customs, and safety rules designed to make crossing the border as painless as possible. It also contains the latest information on rules changes that have come into effect since 1995, as well as specialized contact information.

This booklet, published through a partnership between CTA and the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, provides information that will make crossing into Canada, the United States, or Mexico speedy, simple and smooth-for both driver and cargo, according to information from the Ontario Trucking Association. Heightened sensitivity to border security today make following procedures and having the right identification and all the paperwork completed even more important than before. This guide will help drivers as well as anyone else involved in the clearing of goods at the border get the job done right. Anyone interested in purchasing copies of the Trucker’s Guide can do so by contacting their Canadian provincial trucking association.
