FAST crossings come to Fort Erie, upgrade in BC

FORT ERIE, ON - Border crossings in Fort Erie, Ontario could become a little faster for selected carriers. The Canada Border Services Agency has installed a dedicated lane and inspection booth at the international Peace Bridge for those that participate in the Free and Secure Trade (FAST) program. That builds on similar lanes in Windsor and Sarnia, Ontario, as well as the Pacific Highway crossing in British Columbia. Trucks can use FAST lanes when the driver is a member of FAST or Commercial Driver Registration programs; the carrier and importer are approved under Customs Self-Assessment (CSA) and Partners in Protection (PIP); and all cargo includes CSA-eligible goods from the U.S. or Mexico.
