||Get your SCAC (Standard Carrier Alpha Code). Contact the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) at 1-703-838-1868.
||Alert U.S. Customs Service. When you receive your NMFTA letter notifying you of your SCAC, fax a copy to: Charles Bennett, Office of Applications Development, U.S. Customs Service (USCS), 1-703-921-7173 (fax number).
|| Develop your company's bar code. Do it in house or through a commercial printer. Remember that the SCAC, NUMBER AND CHECK DIGIT must be continuous without spaces or dashes.
||Take bar code sample to USCS. Place the bar code label on a blank USCS manifest (CF7533) and deliver it to the station supervisor at the U.S. Customs office at Lewiston-Queenston. The label should be in column one to make sure U.S. Customs can scan your company's PAPS bar code.
||Contact your U.S. Customs broker. Notify broker that because your company will participate in PAPS, you will need the broker's three-digit filer code. At the same time, find out how to fax your commercial invoices - with PAPS bar codes - to the broker while the goods are still in Canada.
||Get all the details of PAPS at Lewiston-Queenston. Telephone the U.S. Customs Commercial Warehouse at 1-716-282-1500, ext. 216.
NOTE: PAPS is not interchangeable with the Canadian PARS System for Canadian-bound commercial traffic.
