What is a Customs Broker?
A US Customs Broker is a highly-trained individual, licensed and entrusted by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Customs brokers not only have to be constantly attentive to U.S. Customs regulations and laws, but are also responsible for accurate classification of imported items within thousands of categories. They are also required to collect and pay the appropriate tariff or duty on shipped items.
Helpful Customs Acronyms:
ABI Certified: Automated Broker Interface
Our in-house customs brokers can offer you a wide range of services to make importing your cargo a breeze. We are automated broker interface (ABI) certified, which means that our system is CBP-approved and has the latest technology to maximize productivity, accuracy, security, and efficiency as we file your electronic import data. Impressive, right?
RLF: Remote Location Filing
Thanks to our national permit, we can clear your merchandise in any U.S. port! We do remote location filing (RLF) in any U.S. port, as long as you have an annual bond (we can help you get an annual bond!). This electronic program allows us to transmit all information associated with an entry to an RLF-operational Customs Border Protection location.
EDI Transmission: Electronic Data Interchange
We can also do electronic data interchange (EDI) transmission, which is essentially the exchange of data between computers. Our high-tech infrastructure allows us to bypass outdated means of communication and use specific file formats to ensure faster, more secure, and more reliable transmission. By using this format we save money, which means we can pass that savings along to you. We can tell you're smiling right now. Unless you don't like saving money...
ISF: Importer Security Filing
You’ll also be happy to know that we take care of importer security filing (ISF) for you, which is a huge weight off your shoulders. We compile all the data and offer you detailed instructions on how to get through the filing process while remaining compliant. You really need a trusted partner (that's us) to help you manage this aspect of your import business. If not, you could end up with hefty fees that really do a number ($) on your business.
