DB Schenker is one of Canada’s leading Customs Brokers and Trade Services Company. Our goal is to ensure a smooth and on time border crossing of your shipments, without administrative burden, delays or penalties.
As part of the Customs Action Plan, the CBSA has introduced the Customs Self Assessment (CSA) Program.
The Customs Self Assessment (CSA) Program is a progressive trade option for clients who invest in compliance. Based on the principles of risk management and partnership, pre-approved importers who import low risk goods into Canada from the U.S., using pre-approved carriers and drivers will have access to streamline clearance and reporting options for their goods.
DB Schenker can assist you to evaluate and assess your company’s CSA eligibility and readiness. If CSA is the appropriate program for your organization, DB Schenker can facilitate the application process, as well as interface and exchange trade data with the CBSA on your behalf once you have become a CSA importer.

DB Schenker’s Customs Consultants have recovered millions of dollars in refunds and saved importers millions of dollars in customs duties and taxes for our clients. We can show importers how to recover thousands of inadvertently overpaid dollars they didn’t even know they had – even going back four years! And, they’ll save even more money going forward.
Not only will we help importers recover lost funds, but we can also help with faster shipment releases; make them eligible for enhanced options with Customs; and reduce the risk of reassessments of duties and related penalty and interest.
If needed, we’ll even take the case to the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT). At the Tribunal, DB Schenker Customs Consulting tries more cases across every industry sector than all other consultants and brokers combined. If we don’t win the case – the client does not pay!
