C-TPAT / PEP / EXPRES / FAST

Transport Couture, a leader in transport innovation and always on the lookout for new services to offer to its customers, is a partner of EXPRES / FAST since July 2004.

As part of EXPRES / FAST, approved goods can travel even faster to the border and the verification of documents is done away from the border.

This business process is available to approved importers and carriers and also to registered drivers. Shipments for approved companies, which are handled by approved carriers using registered drivers, will be cleared into either country with greater speed and certitude, which allows to reduce the costs ok compliance.

In Canada, EXPRES builds on the Customs Self Assessment Program and its principles of pre-approval and self. It also relies on the increased security of the Canadian program: Partners in Protection.

In United States, FAST harmonizes the requirements of Partners in Protection to those of the U.S. Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism. As part of these programs, companies must adopt and implement security measures that meet the guidelines established by both customs agencies.

Please contact us if you want to know more about these programs and our accreditation.

Since summer 2004, as an international carrier, Transport Couture is taking part in the Security C-TPAT and the PIP Canadian and U.S. Customs program. Border security is increasing.

The C-TPAT and PIP program are initiatives of both business and government to strengthen border security. The program relies on all partners in the supply chain (importers, carriers, warehouse operators and manufacturers and driver) in order to ensure the integrity of their security measures. The program is also open to all importers and carriers.

Participants in these programs may be eligible for accelerated treatment at the border and to a reduction of number of inspections. Shipments approved under these programs are circulating in trade lanes reserved (when infrastructures allow it) using transponder technology or bar codes.
