Shipping Across the US-Canada Border

Customs rules and regulations can be intricate, but fortunately you don’t have to deal with them on your own.

You can book your cross-border shipment on Freightera in seconds. Use our system to find rates, and choose the carrier that best suits your shipping needs.

The Bill of Lading is already generated for you by our system. You will also need either a Commercial Invoice (for shipping from Canada to the USA) or a Canada Customs Invoice (for shipping from the USA to Canada). In case you need assistance, we can offer you advice when it comes to these documents.

You can clear customs for your shipment directly through Freightera. On the booking page, click ‘’Estimate Custom Fees’’ option, or choose ‘’Use Your Customs Broker’’ option, if you prefer to use your own broker. [Important note: this option of clearing customs through Freightera has been temporarily disabled until July 2022. Until then, please sure your own customs broker].

If you have any questions about cross-border shipping, please contact us via online chat, or call us at (800) 886-4870 Ext. 1 to speak to a friendly Freightera agent. You can also email us at

Last week was the first time I used Freightera and I can not believe the excellent service that I experienced and the great quoted price. I had one skid to be picked up in Ohio, it was picked up on time when they said it would be. It was delivered on time when they said it would be and NOT damaged. What more can I say: Great people, great service, and great prices. Freightera will be receiving all my USA to Canada future shipments.
