Since 2009, Importer Security Filing (ISF) 10+2 is a mandatory documentation for all importers that bring their goods to the USA via ocean containers. ISF must be submitted to the U.S. customs at least 24 hours before the departure of the cargo. CBP might issue a fee of $5,000 due to the inaccurate, incomplete or tardy filing of such forms. That is why we also offer our services regarding 10+2 Importer Security.
Moreover, we offer our extensive expertise on AES. It is a new technology that eliminates the paper-bound export system and introduces electronical filing of the export shipment data to CBP. With AES, export information can be edited instantly. Thus any errors that can cost you time and money are detected and eliminated while the documents are being filed.
