Seamless transborder shipping

Old Dominion Freight Line can help companies reduce paperwork and delays for seamless transborder shipments

When you’re shipping freight to and from Canada and the U.S., Old Dominion is uniquely positioned to offer you a smooth, seamless and dependable process. OD has a 30-year history in Canada and in customs processing, so we know the importance of working with brokers and customers to pre-clear freight prior to reaching the border.

OD offers PARS (Pre-Arrival Release System) to clear shipments to Canada and PAPS (Pre-Arrival Processing System) to clear shipments moving to the U.S. For faster entry, we file electronic manifests prior to reaching border checkpoints.

Throughout the entire transport, OD’s single-carrier responsibility assures you of a single point of contact with a local OD expert. To improve transit times, or reduce possible customs and border delays, the knowledgeable staff in our customs processing center is available 24/7.

Tracking your shipment is made easy with 100% door-to-door visibility on your desktop or mobile device.


As a leading, less-than-truckload freight carrier, Old Dominion provides premium service to customers across North America and throughout the world. Our dedicated workforce of over 20,000 employees utilizes the latest freight handling technology and offers you a safety record, claims ratio and on-time service that rank among the best in the industry. It’s how Old Dominion continues to help the world keep promises.
