How to use the PARS Tracker

Canadian customs brokerage clients can check shipment status by entering their unique PARS bar code number and clicking the submit button. The PARS Tracker will return your PARS number in the text field, our Transaction Number (customs entry number), and one of the following messages:


Transaction has been set-up and acknowledged by CBSA - Okay to proceed to P.I.L. for processing.


Transaction has been transmitted to CBSA and is awaiting their acknowledgment. Do not proceed until status is "Acknowledged".


Shipment has crossed border and was released by CBSA.


If status is blank and the Cargo Control and Transaction number appear, the transaction is in process, but has not yet been transmitted to CBSA. Do not proceed until status is "Acknowledged".

Cargo Control Number Not Found

Transaction has not been processed.
