A: Check here if shipment is to move in bond; the consignee may choose to clear freight without using a broker for goods that may be moving into Canada temporarily, e.g., trade show materials. In that case, goods would be clearing inland rather than at the border.
B: The smallest packaging unit should be indicated here. This information must match that on any attached documents. Any discrepancies in pieces, weight or handling units will prevent the broker from making an entry or potentially over- or understating the products being moved (a finable offense).
C: Check here if hazmat.
D: By checking here, you are indicating that something is attached.
E: Use only if “ABC Co.” exports to Canada, but they do not make the goods themselves.
F: If desired by shipper or consignee.
G: This information may be required for “special” bond shipments, e.g., freight that may have been moving through the U.S. from elsewhere for final delivery in Canada.
H: Primary piece of information that customs uses to determine duties and taxes.
I: Does the shipment consist of goods for sale, consignment or lease? This information helps customs determine if the goods are staying in the country and may affect the way duties and taxes are levied.
J: Enter like a normal Bill of Lading. This information must also match that on any attached documents.
K: “Shipper’s Load & Count,” or “Said to Contain”
