Need a Customs Bond?

Import shipments valued at $2500 or more require a customs bond. This bond guarantees that government regulations will be followed and all duties, fees and penalties will be paid in full on the freight. There are two different types of customs bonds available for purchase through a customs broker.

Single Transaction Bond - Good for one import shipment. Imports with a single transaction bond are not authorized for electronic release as they are considered less secure.

Continuous Bond - Obtained before import shipments arrive, it can be be used for multiple shipments at any port within the U.S. for one full year. It is assigned to an importer which can be used with multiple customs brokers.

Did You Know?
Freight can be imported into the United States and stored in a customs bonded warehouse to defer the duty until the cargo is needed. 

Transportation companies handling imported freight are required by law to have a bond themselves.

There are other special bonds such as Importer Security Filing and Temporary Import Bonds. Ask your customs broker which bond is right for you.
