Cross-border enhancements include next-business-day service between Toronto and key markets in the Great Lakes region. In addition, next-business-day LTL service has been introduced between Winnipeg, Manitoba, and the Upper Midwest, an area that is gaining more importance to both countries for cross-border trade.
FedEx Freight also provides next-business-day LTL service between Vancouver, British Columbia, and markets in the Pacific Northwest. Next-business-day service is also available between Montreal, Quebec, and points in the New England and Mid-Atlantic regions.
As part of its efforts to streamline the customs clearance process, a FedEx team serves as the direct contact for shipments from the U.S. to Canada via FedEx Freight and FedEx National LTL. This group uses international clearance systems to enable electronic capture of important international shipping information. Team members are available 24 hours a day, five days a week, to handle the distribution of customs documents to assigned brokers.
The international clearance systems used by this group provide electronic capture of important international shipping information, including the time of paperwork transfer to the customs broker, and when the entry was accepted by Canadian Customs.
