With so many moving parts, cross-border shipping can be complex. Navigating customs laws and regulations requires a successful shipper familiar with the challenges of moving freight across international borders. The first order of business when researching international freight shipping companies is to certify they have the authority to operate in Canada and the U.S.
The staggering amount of goods that travel daily across the Canada/U.S. border include automotive parts, construction materials, consumer/food products, and pharmaceuticals, not to mention a long list of commodities. By July 2022, cargo moving through the 100+ entry points lining the world’s longest international border was approaching $70 billion (USD). The 2020 renegotiation of the NAFTA agreement promises the trade relationship between our two countries will continue to grow.
Hauling freight trans-border can come with strict regulations and must be accompanied by required documentation to remain compliant with current shipping regulations. Although trade agreements reduce barriers, customs, paperwork, security, and dealing with multiple carriers can often prove challenging and sometimes costly if not well-managed when shipping internationally. Failure to comply could mean delays at ports of entry, added fees, and unhappy customers as your goods sit idly at the border. The ultimate goal is to ensure your shipment clears customs and make the cross-border shipping experience seamless.

Greg Grimes got it done. I had an unusual shipment that he took on seriously and professionally. Greg was very responsive and communicative, worked many different angles to get me a good price, and overcame several logistical challenges. I would definitely use MGA again.
We have made several trips to Toronto for the 2013 PGA Championship and over the course of those trips we have gotten to know the principles of this organization well. They are headquartered in Toronto and are great people. If you need to reach out to them, ask for Greg or Brad Grimes and let them know you heard of them through this note and they will take good care of you.
Can count on MGA for all my shipping requirements. Fantastic personnel and service.
