A new white paper from Purolator International, “Understanding the U.S./Canada Customs Clearance Process,” provides an overview of key regulations and paperwork requirements, along with information about how to minimize delays and ensure a seamless border clearance process. The paper offers a wealth of information any smart U.S. business needs to have!
