Procedures at Ports of Entry

Detroit-Windsor Truck Ferry. In addition to the bridges listed on this on-line tool, The Detroit-Windsor Truck Ferry crosses the Detroit River between Windsor, Ontario and Detroit, Michigan on a scheduled basis. This truck-only service is focused on the movement of hazardous material, including goods restricted from the Ambassador Bridge and the Detroit Canada Tunnel (corrosive, flammable, radioactive and explosive materials).

This section of the site covers rules pertaining to the ports of entry, including both general topics and port-specific information, with the object of making the border crossing process as efficient as possible. With recent increased scrutiny at the border to ensure homeland security, it is important to understand applicable requirements and restrictions to minimize border delays.  If transporters come prepared with everything they need for border crossing, such delays should be kept to a minimum.
