Frontier has an experienced team of brokers who will properly complete the customs clearance process for non-resident importers (NRI).
Importing goods across the U.S.-Canada border can be an intimidating experience. For example, importers are expected to properly classify each good and ensure the proper documentation is accompanied. Additionally, it is important to stay up-to-date with changing government regulations to avoid penalties. Avoid the common costs associated with clearing customs by working with our team every step of the way.
Making customs clearance fast, easy and affordable:
Services that work together
We will first bundle goods into one shipment, then clear customs and finally deliver packages directly to the end customer. Our team of customs brokers work together with our couriers to deliver parcels throughout Canada. This strategy simplifies the customs clearance process by making the border between the U.S. and Canada seem transparent. As a result, there is more control throughout the cross-border shipping process. This control allows us to provide fast delivery times while keeping costs low.
Our hub in Chicago allows us to consolidate small parcels from locations throughout the United States. These parcels are then bundled into one truckload and cleared at customs as one shipment. Combining parcel and LTL into one consolidated shipment allows us to aggregate the entire weight of the shipment. As a result, reduced shipping costs occur, due to economies of scale. Additionally, customs clearance fees are kept down because you’re paying for the one shipment rather than multiple clearances.
