One of the oldest Customs brokers in Canada

Take advantage of our knowledge and experience when you’re crossing the border!

In today’s climate, security and compliance are paramount, particularly when you’re shipping freight across the border. As an importer, you want to be absolutely certain that your service provider is well versed in all the most up-to-date standards, policies and procedures for border crossing. The last thing you need is an unexpected delay in your cross-border freight shipment.

Thompson Ahern has succeeded as a Customs broker because of our ability to develop and implement individual solutions for individual clients. Understanding your business, top to bottom, is the most important thing.

The best technology, excellent communication, effective trade solutions!

Our membership in various industry and trade associations ensures that we have a voice in discussions and negotiations with CBSA (Canada Border Service Agency). We use top-of-the-line technology and expertly streamlined operations so our clients have access to the most effective trade solutions.

We’re PIP and C-TPAT certified for your border-crossing security!

Partners in Protection (PIP) is a Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) program that depends on business and corporations to improve border security, fight organized crime and terrorism and aid in the prevention of smuggling illegal products.

In partnership with the CBSA, members of PIP help improve security of the supply chain and facilitate legitimate trade.

As a measure to ensure complete security when it comes to our U.S. Customs Brokerage, Thompson Ahern is C-TPAT certified. Recognized as one of the most effective ways to provide a superior level of cargo security, C-TPAT operates through close cooperation with international supply chain businesses like importers, carriers, consolidators, Customs brokers and manufacturers.

Through C-TPAT, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) asks businesses to guarantee the efficacy of their security practices and attest to the security guidelines of their partners within the supply chain.
