Truck arrivals have continued to improve since May, when businesses and factories started reopening in both countries.

Overall volumes during the week of June 22-28 were down 87% for those crossing via land, and 96% through airports compared to the same time a year ago, the agency said.

Canada and the U.S. have agreed to keep the border closed to all non-essential travel until July 21 to slow the spread of Covid-19.

The restrictions, first introduced in late March, are not applicable to commercial vehicles.
