Canadian Export Requirements Update

     Export container

As reported in the May edition of Route, the electronic export reporting system CAED (Customs Automated Export Declarations) has been decommissioned as of September 30, 2020, and replaced by the Canadian Exporting Reporting System (CERS).

Universal Logistics has been at the forefront of all CERS directives as part of the initial CERS Pilot Working Group – a collaborative group with representation from Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), Statistics Canada and select Trade Chain Partners, including exporters and service providers.  As early adaptors of this CBSA initiative, Universal has been fully operational from the onset of the program launch and are very adept at reporting client export declarations electronically via CERS.

Details of the Canadian Export Reporting System can be found on CBSA’s web site.

If you require assistance with your exports – or simply with your export reporting under the new CERS requirements – we’re here to help.

For more information, contact David Lychek, Manager – Ocean & Air Services.
