Import shipment clearance delays may affect product availability

The BC Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB) has been advised that there may be import shipment clearance delays due to non-compliant import shipments requiring additional documentation for customs clearance.  Please be aware that these delays may also impact import product inventory availability for customers.

We appreciate your patience while we work closely with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), Third Party Warehouses and freight forwarders to ensure timely clearances for import shipments while meeting compliance requirements and maintaining the integrity of the supply chain.
