TRANSBORDER TRUCKING : AN EVALUATION OF CUSTOMS PROCEDURES ---PROCEEDINGS OF THE 23RD ANNUAL MEETING OF THE CANADIAN TRANSPORTATION RESEARCH FORUM, MINAKI LODGE, ONTARIO, CANADA, 24-27 MAY 1988

Studies have indicated that procedures followed by Canadian and u.s. Customs officials have an impact on the productivity of transborder trucking operations. These impacts result from time delays incurred during the procedure, and from the necessity of loading goods in such a way as to facilitate the inspection process. This paper describes the customs procedures governing transborder trucking, and examines the potential impact of two major changes in transportation and trade policy: the current deregulation of the trucking industry and the pending free trade agreement between Canada and the United States. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 807127.
