The United States presents huge opportunities for Canadian exporters...
In 2020, Canadian businesses exported 375 billion dollars of merchandise to the U.S. and only 148 billion dollars of merchandise to countries other than the U.S. This means that over 70% of Canadian merchandise exports go the United States! Additionally, the proximity between the two countries gives Canadian exporters the ability to ship products quickly and cheaply to their American customers.
Many Canadian exporters are successfully shipping to the U.S., but they’re missing out on critical opportunities keep costs down by utilizing U.S. customs and trade regulations to their advantage.
Other exporters may be shipping into the U.S. and exposing themselves to critical U.S customs compliance risk without even knowing it—just because you successfully shipped something into the U.S. does NOT automatically mean that you are in compliance with U.S. customs. That’s what retroactive audits, fines and penalties are for!
