BILSI is committed to providing complete and innovative solutions to meet the needs of businesses in the United States who want to expand into the Canadian market and Canadian companies looking for an efficient transportation management solution for their existing model. Our aim is to achieve fast, efficient, cost-effective movement of your products. That means hassle-free customs clearance coupled with transportation management services for your shipments into Canada.
A Better Shopping Experience
We have developed a web-based application that incorporates our expertise in rating products (customs tariffs), transportation management, and logistics. The application requires very little work on your end and provides you with a resource that can facilitate sales to Canadian consumers.
Using our application, either directly for phone order sales, or connected to the shopping cart of your web site, you will get real time quotes covering freight, duties, taxes, and brokerage fees. This allows your Canadian customer to check out paying total cost of the order allowing for a better shopping experience. Once the order is completed and ready for shipping, it is transmitted to BILSI so we can prepare the customs documentation and plan the transportation.
Customized E-Commerce Solutions
BILSI can prepare a door-to-door solution for E-Commerce retailers who want to penetrate the Canadian market. The Solution will include:
- Provide our Web Service solution.
- Provide real time information covering all shipping/handling costs, Canadian taxes (GST/HST and when applicable, PST on an order-by-order basis).
- Provide drop shipment points throughout the USA to consolidate northbound orders.
- Prepare and provide consolidated customs entries.

Canada is the largest trading partner of the USA and one of the most receptive markets in the world for US goods and services. BILSI makes selling to the 22,000,000 internet users in Canada hassle-free. No hidden charges to your client, all duties taxes and shipping costs are listed and collected before the product is even delivered to the drop shipment point. Let us show you how easy we can make this process for you.

Beler Cross Border Services
As a transportation company, shipping across the US/Canada border seamlessly requires in-depth understanding of customs and the required paperwork. If you’re in need of improvements and cost savings, you can outsource your PARS/PAPS desk operations to us. Or if you’ve been looking to expand your operation to include cross border, we have the solution.
We are pleased to introduce Beler Cross Border Services (BCBS). Our unique software platform and service will manage your entire PARS/PAPS desk operation, allowing you to focus on timely deliveries and satisfied customers. We take care of everything so you can be assured to have trucks moving across the border with ease.
How does it work?
Building on BILSI’s extensive customs expertise, we’ve developed a software platform that will digitize Bill of Lading (BOL) data in order to transmit ACI/ACE eManifests, and optionally send a 204 (Motor Carrier Load Tender) file. Shipments are managed from the time the paperwork is received, to notifying the customs broker, submitting the ACE/ACI and conveyance/trip data to CBSA and CBP, and finally reporting once it has crossed the border. Our team of experts will support this service so you won’t have to worry about anything.
How are we different?
We're not just providing the software, but also the qualified staff to manage your shipments crossing the border and ensure that all Customs requirements are met.
For ease of setup, we can work directly with the carrier or the carrier’s customer. We offer round-the-clock coverage and support, with experts stationed in Customs on both sides of the border to ensure your drivers cross without incident. Our service can be scaled to handle any volume from five to 5,000 BOLs a night. Please contact us for more information.
We can also provide ACI reporting for LTL shipments for Rail. We have worked with Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) to allow for multiple shipments to multiple consignees per container. We only load when it’s safe to do so, once ACI and RNS acceptance are both received. The communications between CBSA/CBP and the Rail/Road Companies are critical to the smooth flow of goods across the border.
Lower your costs without compromising service levels.
Our Shipment Management Application centralizes shipment activity and status updates. Let us manage your shipments and ensure you stay compliant, so you can focus on timely deliveries and satisfied customers.
