Not all customs brokers are created equal.

Three things to know before you import.

1. It can be tricky.

You’d be amazed at how many one-time shippers think that importing and exporting is like checking out at a supermarket. It’s more like writing an examination with the teacher scanning the room for cheaters.

2. Classification has to be precise.

Imports and exports are classified and described by the shipper. You’d think that would be straightforward. It’s not. There are hundreds of classifications and descriptions.

3. Brokers are like error insurance.

Customs agencies hold importers liable for inaccuracies in their documentation. A broker helps you avoid errors that could come back to haunt you. Nobody wants questions from customs officials.

We handle the details for you.

Taking a little more time pays off.
