How to process USMCA shipments with NRGship

This article is current as of July 2020. It will be updated as we receive new information from our carrier partners.


As of July 1st, 2020, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) will replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Some shipments that cross the borders of these countries may require special import forms.

For USMCA details and forms, go to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection USMCA page. For NAFTA information, go to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection NAFTA page.


Currently the UPS Developer Kit APIs do not support the new USMCA forms for automated processing.  You will need to produce your own USMCA forms and apply them to the outside of packages. You can find more information on USMCA and a sample form for UPS shipments using this link.


Currently the FedEx Shipment APIs do not support the new USMCA forms for automated processing.  You will need to produce your own USMCA forms and apply them to the outside of packages. You can find more information on USMCA and a sample form for FedEx shipments using this link. We are working on an update where you can attach a PDF version of the FedEx form to your shipment.

Learn to streamline your supply chain with iDrive

iDrive’s team of experts has phenomenal depth and knowledge in small parcel consulting and optimization. They help our clients see through the murky waters of their carrier agreements to find hidden savings as well enhancing visibility of their respective supply chains. The case study below shows how iDrive helped one of their client’s reduce parcel costs by 17.4%.

Client is a major Office Supply and Furniture Distributor with shipments to customers throughout the United States. The client’s transportation encompasses parcel shipments, many of which are bulky and unwieldy due to the nature of the contents. Business is driven through customer satisfaction, where important factors include cost and reliability. They had experienced challenges in establishing procurement credibility with both carriers in the past, which combined with the shipment characteristics present made for a non-competitive transportation procurement environment.

1. Establish credibility with both carriers to create a competitive bid environment.
2. Reduce overall parcel shipping costs.
3. Lay the groundwork for future competitive transportation procurement.

iDrive Logistics performed a detailed analysis of the historical parcel distribution data, including carrier agreements. The Client was a long-time customer of UPS, and had struggled to bring FedEx to the table in the past. This had created a procurement environment devoid of competition among carriers, resulting in wide leverage for UPS and poor pricing performance for the them. iDrive provided quantitative analysis and contract procurement coaching, with the goals of providing a credible business case to draw FedEx to the table, credibly conveying to UPS that risk of business loss existed, and ultimately reducing parcel costs and enhancing service provided by the chosen carrier.

As a result of iDrive’s advisory services, the Client exceeded the original objectives. Both carriers produced quality proposals which led to a contract representing a 17.4% annual reduction in parcel spend, and laid the groundwork for future competitive bids. Credibility with both carriers was enhanced, costs were reduced substantially, and the Client is well-positioned for future transportation procurement and additions of addenda throughout the current contract term.
