How to process an import shipment with FlagShip

For FlagShip customers, processing international import shipments are easy! Login to your FlagShip account and go to the ‘new shipment’ screen. In the ‘Shipper’ section choose the country that you want to ship to.

The next step is to complete the rest of the address information. Any shipment entering Canada requires export documents. To create a commercial invoice on the FlagShip online shipping system, the following information is needed:

  • Who will pay the duties/taxes
  • The reason for export
  • A detailed description of the product
  • The value (CAD or USD)
  • The country of origin
  • The HS code must be provided to ensure there are no issues. ( Our FlagShip online system has a  tool on the commercial invoice that can provide you with the proper code)

*All FlagShip Customers have exclusive access to FlagShip experts for guidance on  more information on completing the commercial invoice on our website. Call our experts on  (1-866-320-8383) anytime during your shipping process.
