Trusted Trader Programs

Both the United States and Canadian governments maintain a number of programs designed to facilitate the border clearance process, while simultaneously promoting border security.  These initiatives are generally referred to as “trusted trader” programs, and rely on the voluntary cooperation of private industry in exchange for specific benefits.  The following paper from Purolator International, “Improving U.S./Canada Cross Border Opportunities:  Trusted Trader Programs,” discusses current U.S. and Canadian programs, and explains the key benefits of each.  As the paper makes clear, many businesses are unaware of these programs, and missing out on opportunities to significantly improve cross border efficiency.
