Every business involved in international shipping is exposed to logistics costs and diverse government trade regulations. In most cases these costs may be second to the product costs themselves. Therefore it is imperative that your shipping is constantly monitored and managed by an international  trade professional.

Although commonly referred to as shipping and/or customs matters; international trade activity goes beyond basic procedure and the payment of Customs duty. How these supply chain procedures are managed can impact every function of your business.

Whether you are new or an experienced importer - Can you answer the following questions with a resounding YES ?

  • Are you aware of the role your logistics provider and customs broker plays in your shipments ?
  • Are you aware of the ongoing informational requirements being implemented by US Customs ? Although just as significant - informational enforcement is superceding revenue enforcement.
  • Have you quantified all your logistics costs ? Is your current broker clearing your shipments quickly and effectively ? Or Is your current broker blaming Customs for delays on every other occasion ?
  • Are you taking advantage of ALL available means of minimizing customs duties with Free Trade Agreements such as NAFTA, CAFTA, AGOA, SFTA, IFTA,CEBRA, GSP etc ?
  • Is your product currently the target of an anti-dumping duty suit ushered in by disgruntled US domestic producers ?
  • Are you currently utilizing or have a positive relationship with a Customs professional ?

Whatever your situation we will work hand in hand with all parties in the supply chain to streamline your international logistics, import compliance requirements, expediting your cargo through U.S. Customs and Other Government Agencies.
