Specialized Services

The following specialized services are available through Expert Customs Brokers:

Customs Self Assessment

The CBSA’s Customs Self Assessment (“CSA”) program is ideal for any business that wishes to obtain a lower risk rating with CBSA and achieving greater compliance in its customs clearance processes. The payback can be very quick and the long term rewards quite significant for most importers who take advantage of the program. This said, CSA is not for every importer, as you require a sufficient volume of business to make the initial investment in time and systems worthwhile.
