What is a Non-Resident Importer (NRI)?

A company that has registered for the program that is:

  • A U.S. company that doesn't have a physical presence in Canada.
  • A U.S.-based company that acts as both the exporter from the U.S. and the importer of shipments into Canada.

When it comes to U.S. trading partners, Canada ranks high. In fact, Canada and the U.S. are each other's largest trading partners and with the FedEx Trade Networks NRI program, it's easier than ever for U.S. companies to import their products into Canada.

Have you ever considered the advantages of becoming an NRI?

By becoming an NRI, U.S. companies become the Importer of Record into Canada and have their Canadian sales resemble a domestic transaction. Our NRI program is well suited for U.S. companies that sell directly to Canadian consumers, retailers and businesses.
