We work with our GTO network of global agents or with your foreign forwarder to provide pricing and service for ocean freight shipments into the U.S. It is now of paramount importance the U.S. importer of record to maintain control of their ocean freight routings. As the importer of record, you are responsible to ensure the correct and timely filing of the Importer Security Filing (ISF) with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The importer is subject to fines and penalties up to $5,000.00 if the ISF is not filed in the required time frame. We request the ISF document to be sent completed to us no later than 48 hours prior to the vessels departure from the origin port. We also request the documents for your shipment to be sent to us in advance for us to begin the entry process of your goods. We coordinate with you and/or your warehouse to schedule final delivery of your cargo pending release from Customs and the other government affiliates. We work meticulously with both our client and their suppliers to see that the goods arrive as scheduled to avoid any demurrage or detention charges. These value added services are in place to save you time and money.
