The FAILED PARS process allows Canadian Bonded Truckload and LTL carriers to expedite the movement of their trucks from the border.  The process implemented by a number of LTL carriers is based on a predetermined decision that when the truck arrives at the border and the importer's or custom's broker's declaration is not available the shipment will automatically be bonded to a predetermined sufferance warehouse.  Carriers using this process will find  it can create more predictable transit times for their line-haul drivers yet a monkey wrench can be thrown into the works if CBSA determines the shipment is a health, safety or security risk to Canadians.  Carriers using this process should have the appropriate completed A8A's available to give to the Border Services Officer when they arrive at the Primary Inspection Line to minimize the potential of being sent to secondary for processing if the BSO requests the Mail Room copy of the manifest(s).  I have also created a fictitious sample where a the shipment was initially scheduled to clear at Emerson Manitoba would automatically be bonded to Winnipeg to clear customs at the Highway Customs Sufferance Warehouse.  The sample highlights the "To Port" and "Location of Goods" fields are coded to indicate Winnipeg port code 504 and the Highway Customs Sufferance Warehouse sub-location code 3156. 


Below on this website you will find two videos.  The first one is provides information about the process along with a little history.  The second video provides a demonstration of how a FAILED PARS declaration can be prepared using the eManifest Express software.
