Our Services Include:
- ISF – Import Security Filing for all import shipments arriving by ocean into the United States. This formality is required prior to export from the last foreign port to avoid penalty.
- Cargo Insurance – Cargo insurance, sometimes referred to as freight insurance provides a cost effective way of covering your freight for physical loss or damage to goods in transit.
- Customs Bonds – A Customs bond is required when importing merchandise for commercial purposes that are valued over $2,500 or a commodity subject to other federal agencies requirements (i.e. ATF or FDA).
- Customs Clearance – We enable companies to bring goods into the U.S. from another country. A simple way to think about customs clearance is an electronic notification given by customs to an importer to show that customs has released their shipment and it can be shipped to its final U.S. destination. If your logistics have already been arranged we can also just handle your Customs clearance.
- Duty Drawback – In addition to standard U.S. Customs clearances, we can assist you with duty drawback. This is a U.S. Customs program that allows exporters to receive a refund of 99% of the import duties paid, based on product and procedure qualifications.
- Compliance Review – We ensure that your shipment is in compliance with laws and regulations.
- Global Logistics – We can assist you every step of the way in getting your goods from the point of origination to your final destination. If your logistics have already been arranged we can also just handle your Customs clearance.
- Freight Forwarding – We enable companies to ship goods from the U.S. to another country. (Freight Forwarding is a VERY generic term. We provide freight forwarding now for our imports for both ocean and air imports. Freight Forwarding does not only apply to export.)
