Single Window Initiative: Infographic: Everything You Need to Know About SWI as an Importer

Canada's Single Window Initiative (SWI) soft launches January 1, 2019. Will your business be ready?

What if you could clear your goods faster—and more securely—through Canada Customs? The Single Window Initiative (SWI) aims to do just that.

It will also bring changes to what information you need to provide with your shipments. And in some cases, when you need to provide it.

To help you navigate these changes, we’ve created an easy-to-digest infographic to get you up to speed, so you can start working with your suppliers and vendors to get all the information you’ll need to make sure your customs broker can clear your shipments on time.
