    Good Morning to the knowledgeable members of this illustrious forum!

    I had a question that I was hoping this group might be able to provide some insight on. What is required as a US Broker to run inter-Canada (both PU and delivery are in Canada, not in and out of Canada from the US) freight? Is it is as simple as make sure the carriers you work with are Canadian carriers with Canadian authority?

    Our brokerage has historically shied away from Inter-Canadian freight, so I'm a novice here.

    Any info provided is appreciated.

    Sincerely,

    JimmyTwoTimes

    Edit: Apologies if I got my Inter & Intra mixed up, I'm referring to moves that don't leave Canada.

    To be legal the person driving the truck would have to be a Canadian citizen since the loads wouldn’t be crossing the border. Other than that, I have nothing else to offer because it’s above my pay grade.

    With-in Canada pick and delivery is called "Intra-Canada". Inter would be cross border
