PIP (Partner in Protection) Permit

PIP is a trusted program by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) that enhances border security while facilitating legitimate trade, ensuring a smooth and secure cross-border operation for your trucking business.


    What is PIP?

    PIP, or Partner in Protection, is a program designed to strengthen border security while expediting the flow of goods across the border. It is a joint initiative by the CBSA and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that aims to build stronger partnerships between government agencies and businesses involved in cross-border trade.

    Why Do You Need a PIP Permit?

    As a trucking business, obtaining a PIP permit offers several advantages:
    1. Expedited Cross-Border Clearance: PIP permit holders enjoy faster processing times at border crossings, reducing delays and ensuring on-time delivery of your goods.
    2. Enhanced Security: PIP-certified businesses are recognized as trusted partners by border authorities, which can lead to fewer inspections and a smoother border-crossing experience.
    3. Competitive Advantage: Having a PIP permit can make your business more attractive to customers who prioritize reliable and efficient cross-border transport.
    4. Reduced Risk of Non-Compliance: PIP certification ensures that your business is aligned with security and compliance standards, reducing the risk of penalties or delays due to non- compliance issues.

    A PIP Permit is a certification program offered by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) that aims to enhance border security and streamline the customs clearance process for businesses involved in international trade.
    Any Canadian business involved in importing, exporting, or the transportation of goods across the Canadian border can apply for a PIP Permit.
    PIP Permit holders enjoy expedited border crossings, reduced customs inspections, and improved security measures, resulting in more efficient and cost-effective trade operations.
    The process involves completing an application, undergoing a risk assessment, providing documentation, and participating in a site validation review by CBSA.
    There is typically no fee for applying and obtaining a PIP Permit, making it an accessible program for businesses of various sizes.
    PIP Permits are generally valid for three years, after which businesses must undergo a renewal process, which includes updating information and participating in a site validation review to maintain their status.
