Brokerage Department

Our customs brokers are highly-trained import professionals, licensed by the Bureau of Customs, possessing a thorough knowledge of tariff schedules and Customs regulations. For every shipment entering the United States there is an official greeting: 500 pages of Customs regulations and thousands of tariff items. Our customs brokers are well versed in determining proper classifications and dutiable value, and are fully aware of the vast number of commodities subject to quotas.


Our customs brokers can help you choose modes of transportation and appropriate carriers, which require analyses of a vast body of data. They can also provide assistance to importers in assigning shipments the best routes as well as estimates for land based costs, payments of goods through draft, letters of credit insurance, and re-delivery of cargo if there is more than one port of destination.

Duty draw back offers a refund for all, or more likely, some of any import duty paid on imported products that were used to make an exported product or were in themselves re-exported after entry. For example, duty may be refunded on raw materials that are used on goods locally made for eventual export. This program is in place to promote and make our products favorably compete in foreign market. Our drawback specialists handle all aspects of drawback claims from recordkeeping to electronic filing of claims and expedited refunds.
