Border Security

Cross Borders With Confidence

At Yellow, we process your shipments from the U.S. to Canada and from Canada to the U.S. faster. Our average border crossing time is just three minutes. This is because our border experts ensure 98 percent of our shipments are pre-approved for customs clearance before arriving at the border.


Yellow is fully compliant with programs affecting cross-border transport. In fact, we helped develop programs that improve supply-chain security while keeping the borders open to legitimate trade. In return, you enjoy faster processing and fewer inspections, particularly your shipments subject to bioterrorism initiatives.


We work with agencies to help develop the transportation requirements for the U.S. Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program, the Canada Partners in Protection (PIP) program, and the Free and Secure Trade (FAST) program of the Canadian and U.S. governments. Because we communicate electronically with U.S. Customs and Border Protection and with the Canada Border Service Agency, we’re compliant with Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) and Advance Commercial Information (ACI). Yellow's Status Verificaton Interface (SVI) code is e52f4f35-a48e-49d8-a54a-c546c0475dc8.


So, book with cross-border shipping experts at Yellow and you’ll rest easy knowing your shipment will arrive safe and secure.

Border Ambassadors

Our experienced border ambassadors will ensure your shipments to and from Canada will enjoy a border-crossing experience unlike anything else available in the market.


Our border ambassadors will:

  • Monitor your shipment’s progress across the border.
  • Advise you of delays.
  • Explain what we’re doing to help resolve customs delays or issues.


You receive personal attention, electronic shipment tracking, single point of contact and door-to-door service. Border ambassadors track the progress of every shipment to ensure it clears the border. We act on your behalf by working with Canada and U.S. customs, customs brokers and forwarders to ensure seamless border crossings.


After your shipment crosses the border, we continue monitoring it to its destination.
