We are pleased to announce that Argus Carriers Ltd. has been accepted as a member of the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT).
Our participation in the C-TPAT program means that Argus Carriers is recognized as a “low-risk trade partner” and allows us to access the “FAST” lane at the Pacific Highway land border for expedited clearance. We are confident that with our involvement, we will see reduced waiting time, increased efficiency and enhanced customer satisfaction in the near future.
While our own involvement is essential to our survival as a cross-border transportation service provider, it is equally important that our business partners involve themselves in this program. Without the involvement of our shippers and other trade partners, expedited border clearance cannot take place.
We urge all of our customers to explore the benefits of involvement in the C-TPAT program by contacting US Customs via their website at www.cbp.gov . Their site will guide you through the application process.
If you have any questions about this program or any other aspects of cross-border shipping please feel free to contact Andrew Anderson. Andrew would be happy to meet with you to discuss the C-TPAT program and its benefits, he can be reached at: (604) 433-1556
On be half of Argus Carriers, Peninsula Truck Lines and the entire transportation community we thank you for your interest and continued support.
