International Machine Transport works with large corporate entities, local and regional government entities, along with military branches for both Canada and the United States. We strive to meet and exceed all designation requirements mandated by all of these entities.

In addition, we have developed our own internal processes and SOP’s (standard operating procedures) for the safe handling, securing and transportation of high value machinery.

IMT is a recognized member or approved participant in the following security programs

Free and Secure Trade (FAST) – FAST is a joint initiative between the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection that enhances border and trade chain security while making cross-border commercial shipments simpler and subject to fewer delays.

All FAST program participants (drivers, carriers and importers) must undergo a risk assessment. FAST-approved participants are identified as low risk, which enables the CBSA to focus its resources and security efforts on travelers of high or unknown risk.

Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) – When companies join the anti‐terror partnership, they sign an agreement to work with CBP to protect the supply chain, identify security gaps, and implement specific security measures and best practices. Additionally, partners provide CBP with a security profile outlining the specific security measures the company has in place. Applicants must address a broad range of security topics and present security profiles that list action plans to align security throughout their supply chain.

C‐TPAT members are considered low‐risk and are therefore less likely to be examined. This designation is based on a company’s past compliance history, security profile, and the validation of a sample international supply chain.

Reliability Status (Canadian Government) – A Reliability Status is mandatory for individuals when the duties or tasks of a position or contract necessitate access to PROTECTED information and assets, regardless of the duration of an assignment, Personnel who hold a valid Personnel Security Clearance are not required to undergo an additional Reliability Screening.

Air Cargo Security Clearance Program (ACS) – Air carriers operating at designated Canadian airports must register with the ACS Program. Any entity that intends to accept cargo for transportation, screen in accordance with prescribed methods and tender it as secure for transport by air may apply to become an ACS Program Approved Participant. This could include freight forwarders, screening facilities, cargo handling agents, agents, warehouses, trucking companies, packing companies or shippers.

Department of Transportation (DOT) – Companies that operate commercial vehicles transporting passengers or hauling cargo in interstate commerce must be registered with the FMCSA and must have a USDOT Number. Also, commercial intrastate hazardous materials carriers who haul quantities requiring a safety permit must register for a USDOT Number. IMT’s US DOT number is 502233

BC Safety Certificate, National Safety Code (NSC) – The National Safety Code (NSC) is a set of safety standards for motor carriers, drivers and vehicles operating in Canada. Provinces and territories have the authority and responsibility to regulate all carriers who operate within their borders.

In 1989, the Canadian Council of Motor Transportation Administrators (CCMTA) established the NSC standards. This was done to provide a set of standards that all provinces and territories could use. The CCMTA includes representatives from the federal and all provincial governments. All provinces and territories have adopted the NSC standards and use them to develop their own regulations.

IMT’s Safety Certificate number is 200396235

This page is a work in progress, we plan to be adding more US military certifications in the near future.
