Being a licensed Customs broker with a national bond posted with the CBSA (Canada Border Service Agency) we take care of Customs clearance nationwide at all Canadian Customs offices using such EDI tools of the CBSA as Accelerated Commercial Release Operational Support System (ACROSS) including Pre-Authorized Review System (PARS) and Release on Minimum Documentation (RMD) options, and Customs Automated Data Exchange (CADEX). Dilas International is a proud corporate member of the Canadian Society of Customs Brokers.
We guarantee to our clients electronic submission of a Customs entry to the CBSA within an hour of receiving a complete set of documents for an import shipment by fax or e-mail.
So great to know there are no hidden fees. What I guestimated to be the cost of brokering from your fees chart worked out to be exactly what I was charged. Thanks again.
