Business to Business Import Freight Management

With government regulations constantly changing it can be challenging for importers to keep up. A customs broker deals with over 40 different branches of government to obtain a customs clearance on import shipments. Businesses that import multiple containers every month can benefit from using the same customs broker for each shipment. Keeping imports consistently classified reduces shipping costs and decreases the chances of a customs inspection taking place.

Need a customs clearance for a shipment that requires special handling? Various import shipments can require additional handling instructions and paperwork filed with different government agencies including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Fish and Wildlife and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). To ensure a timely customs clearance, it is vital that the importer has an experienced customs broker managing all international shipments.
