All entry must be accompanied by evidence that a bond has been posted with CBP to cover any potential duties, taxes, and charges that may accrue. There are two types of these bonds, continuous and single entry bonds. If you are a frequent importer it is cost effective to purchase a continuous bond, which can be used anywhere in the United States for all your shipments. Because we handle a volume of these continuous bonds we are able to provide special discounted rates on bonds purchased through us.
Clearance of merchandise through other government agencies (FWL, FDA, USDA, DOT, EPA, FCC and others).
Certain commodities require clearance by other government agencies in addition to U.S. Customs. These are very involved processes and penalties for non-compliance are serious. We clear these items on a daily basis and have a lot of experience with these agencies. We also can submit for you FDA prior notices, register foreign facilities and apply for a license in case is required.
