The INPRO Group is a unique international network of independent,
first class companies in the export packing industry. The INPRO Group began its professional cooperation in the early 1960's. Since then it has developed itself as the primary international network of export packing companies, supporting global manufacturing supply chains and operating on a global scale.
The Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association was founded in 1948 in Montreal by a small group of freight forwarders who saw a need to create an industry association to meet the professional demands of its members. As the providers of goods and services to our export shipping customers, our membership to CIFFA facilitates access to some 250 freight forwarding companies.
Cratex has been certified and licensed by Canada Border Services Agency as a Customs Bonded Facility. A key part of the CBSA's mandate is to risk assess and release all imported goods coming into Canada. The CBSA carries out these activities most often upon the goods' arrival at the border; however, in some cases, they can be done inland at licensed warehouses, including sufferance warehouses.
We are approved by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) for adherence to regulations aimed at preventing the spread of insects. We strictly adhere to the ISPM (International Standards For Phytosanitary Measures) #15 Guidelines for Regulating Wood Packing Material used in international trade. You can be confident that when we pack and crate an item our work always conforms to international regulations.
