Sumas Cross Border Freight

Sumas cross border freight takes an alternative route travel between the U.S. and Canada through northern Washington State. Freight shipped to cross the border at Sumas, WA may be headed for delivery in the region of British Columbia east of Vancouver. In addition, freight heading to the U.S. from the manufacturing region of western Canada can reach key areas in the Pacific Northwest in about a day.

Sumas is one of the busiest ports along the U.S. and Canadian border in Washington State. Serving the northwest corner of the state, Sumas is more inland than the cross border location in Sumas to the west. R+L Global Logistics has a strong presence on the west coast, with a vast network of trusted resources to provide cross border freight service between the U.S. and Canada.

Advantages of Sumas Cross Border Freight

The Sumas border crossing dates back to the late 1800s as the railroad expanded in the region, traveling between the U.S. and Canada. The first building for U.S. customs in the area, a brick structure circa 1914, was relocated and preserved as historic. Today, the current border crossing ranks second in the state for the amount of truck traffic between the two countries. 

A major advantage shippers realize when working with R+L Global Logistics is the network of professionals in place to get freight across the border. Our team has built relationships with dedicated and experienced carriers who are familiar with shipping freight on either side of the border.  

In addition, we make sure all documentation required for international freight is in place for cross border shipping. This step saves time at the border and means your freight is not waiting to clear customs or lost in a warehouse.

The flow of cross border freight is constant as the Sumas point of entry point which operates year round.
