To ensure safe and secure transportation, Polaris participates in every border security program – CTPAT (Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism), PIP (Partners in Protection), CSA (Customs Self-Assessment) and FAST (Free and Secure Trade).
We were early adopters of all border security programs and have incorporated automated pre-arrival barcode systems PARS and PAPS to further avoid unnecessary customs delays. In addition, for some time now Polaris has integrated ACI (Advance Commercial Information) and ACE (Automated Commercial Environment) with direct data connections to Canadian and US border services to better serve our customers.
For your added convenience, we are also a Canadian and U.S. Customs bonded carrier and can deliver your goods in bond, for clearance at destination.
Our customers turn to us for their cross-border LTL freight requirements on a daily basis. Our scheduled service connects Ontario and Quebec (Canada) markets with the USA through a combination of our fleet and facilities and that of our long established partner carriers.
Our drivers are all FAST approved and well versed in cross-border trucking procedures. This aids greatly in avoiding unnecessary delays at the border. Our modern fleet is up to date and well maintained through a stringent maintenance program. Our technology is continually being updated and plays a hand in numerous aspects of our cross-border trucking operation. From automated dispatch to in-cab communication, from EDI to real time shipment visibility and management reporting.
