Barcode Graphics offers the PARS barcode labels and PAPS labels together. The tags we provide are utilized by the Canadian and US Customs to detect and release the consignment. The process of clearance of commercial import/export shipments in both countries is quite similar. Nonetheless, the Canada Border Services Agency uses PARS whereas US Customs and Border Protection inspects PAPS. The PARS label allows Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to confirm the information as submitted by the importer or customs broker at release and thereby facilitates duty free importation of goods into Canada. We observe correct policies and practices to give you correct and affordable Canada Customs labels. The release of goods can be made faster when our PARS barcode labels are employed. The barcode labels we manufacture are of superior material and are easily scanned. You can purchase our Canada and US regulatory-compliant labels at the reasonable prices. If you are an importer, exporter or manufacturer, then get the right type of label from us.
