The CSA grants approved importers, approved freight carriers and registered drivers advantages of a simplified customs clearance option for CSA-eligible merchandise. You therefore no longer have to transmit transactional data concerning the eligible merchandise. You can simply clear cargo through customs after confirmation of the identity of the approved importer, approved carrier and registered driver. This membership thus facilitates the importation of goods that NORMANDIN TRANSIT brings in to Canada.
