Each month, BorderBuddy tracks and reports how many customs clearances there are into Canada. The above graph represents the imports for January 2018.
January 2018 showed releases of 1,791,367 compared to 1,398,644 for January 2017.
That’s an increase of 28% – however, BorderBuddy did some investigating and found that this increase is mostly at Port 417, Hamilton, Ontario – and there were some changes to the release procedures there that resulted in this anomaly. As you will see from the graph above, this started around April 2017.
BorderBuddy helps import many of these shipments!
