Carrier Logistics partners with Canadian firm on border clearance

Ottawa — April 13, 2005 — Carrier Logistics of Tarrytown, N.Y., has announced an alliance with Ottawa-based e-global logistics firm ViaSafe Inc. to enable truckers to speed freight across the border with fewer problems and less paperwork.

ViaSafe technology combined with CLI's FACTS computerized transportation accommodates new Customs advanced notification rules, speeding up border processes, reduces shipment costs, improves service, and increases job satisfaction for border-crossing drivers, CLI vice-president Ken Weinberg says.

The partnership provides a transparent back-end solution to link the FACTS freight management system with U.S. and Canadian governments, customers and customs brokers to exchange customs and trade documents.

“Until now, the flow of customs documentation has been paper-based, very slow and very costly, which slows down the entire business cycle,” says Weinberg. “Now, by working with ASP ViaSafe, we have a new, secure electronic connection to the agencies that need to receive the documentation."

Not only does the system speed things up, but also cuts customs brokers’ costs by 30 percent for communication with the Customs, Weinberg adds.
