CBP’s Services consist of acting only as an agent of the member for shipping purposes by receiving the member’s merchandise, which will be sorted, packed, and may be consolidated. At the Member’s direction, CBP arranges for shipment to the local CBP facility by an unaffiliated service provider, which acts as the freight forwarder and/or carrier for the shipment. CBP does not act as an indirect air carrier of property, but rather acts as an agent of the shipper (i.e., Members).
While CBP may not open all packages, it reserves the right to open all packages. The members are only responsible for all import obligations in Canada
Shipping costs are based on the weight and dimensions of your shipments. Shipping costs will be charged according to the actual weight or dimensional weight, based on the rates information provides on the website.
Prohibited or restricted merchandise is not storable and will be rejected, forfeited (and sold with the proceeds donated to charity), destroyed, or provided to government officials.
