Free and Secure Trade (FAST)

MSR can get you Free and Secure Trade (FAST) certified. Services include assessment; security and recommendations; and navigating the application process.

Fast certification expedites cross-border shipments

The Free and Secure Trade (FAST) program is a joint initiative between the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CPB). It enhances border and trade chain security by ensuring compliance through certification and, in return, makes cross-border commercial shipments simpler and subject to fewer delays.

Eligible goods arriving for certified companies and transported by approved carriers using registered drivers are cleared into Canada or the United States with greater speed and certainty, resulting in reduced costs. Dedicated FAST lanes mean shorter waits. This is particularly important at the busiest crossings: the Ambassador, Peace, Queenston/Lewiston and Blue Water bridges. Where there are no dedicated lanes, and in times of increased security alert, FAST shipments also jump queue, moving ahead of other shipments waiting to cross the border.
