How can goods be exported from Europe to Canada?
Commercial transit between America and Europe takes place on a smooth and daily basis. Thousands of goods cross the Atlantic Ocean every year by sea or by plane to meet the demand of companies and consumers. One of the main countries that serves as a destination for a large number of exports from Europe is Canada, the most northern nation on the American continent.
There are certain characteristics that make Canada one of the most traded places from the Old Continent. These include cultural ones, such as its membership of the Commonwealth, a commonwealth of nations that has historical ties with the United Kingdom; the existence of two common languages, English and French, which facilitate communication; and its proximity to the United States, a major trading power.
To export goods from Europe to Canada it is important to be familiar with all the bureaucratic procedures, such as labeling or necessary documents to be filled out, whether the products are shipped in a container ship or in a cargo plane. It is essential and helpful to have the support and advice of an experienced logistics operator such as Logisber.

Can any product be shipped to Canada? There is a Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between the European Union and Canada that allows for greater fluidity in the exchange of goods. This agreement reduces tariffs and eliminates duties on almost all exported products. It also minimizes delays at Canadian customs, making the movement of goods faster and more efficient, and simplifying procedures at the port or airport of origin and at the destination.
