We have heard from some members concerning limitations on non-essential travel between the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
First, all supply chains including trucking will not be impacted by this limited closure. The agreements to limit travel went in effect March, 21, 2020 to last for 30 days. The agreement was then extended on April 20, 2020 for an additional 30 days.
If you or one of your clients need to absolutely travel to the U.S., call the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)office at the Port of Entry you anticipate to travel thru and inquire if your travel is deem essential.
Remember, All American citizens, Legal Permanent residents and their immediate families can always return to the U.S.
During this global pandemic our business has mainly been conducted through several social media means which many of you are familiar with. Currently 100% of our work has been through video conferencing, newsletters, Instagram, Facebook, Google hangouts, uber conference, etc. We use whatever electronic means are clients are most comfortable in communicating. (note: Many companies in the U.S. has been backing away from zoom do to security concerns within their application).
Our focus of late is on reaching out to domestic clients searching for new markets as business opportunities are slowing in the U.S. There is a big push in agriculture to save farmers and the need for food banks to supply their communities. We continue to monitor the Export-Import bank of the U.S. and the American Chamber of Commerce for global opportunities for our clients.
Until then, Stay safe and never stop looking forward
