Why Do I Need a Customs Broker ?
Customs brokerage is the regulatory clearance
of shipments and the delivery of goods across international borders for
organizations and individuals. That’s
the “easy” part.
The hard part is ensuring that your company and
cargo enter a country in compliance with a fearsome line-up of rules,
regulations, and laws from a formidable list of government departments,
bureaus, and agencies. Your livelihood
is at stake here, folks. If you do not
properly comply, you will face fines and legal fees while jeopardizing your
right to import.
You need a Customs broker with regulatory
compliance expertise and encyclopedic knowledge of Customs laws. You need a Customs broker with over 100 years
of experience to help you navigate the perils of intellectual property rules,
FDA regulations, and product classifications all while demonstrating reasonable
care throughout your total business process.

Automated Commercial Environment (ACE)
Faster Customs Clearance and Lower Costs
The Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) is
the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) system designed to facilitate
legitimate trade while also enhancing border security. The ACE system provides
a single, centralized window to connect CBP and Partner Government Agencies to
members of the trade community. ACE provides rapid clearance while reducing
paper use and minimizing costs.
To make the best use of ACE, you need an
experienced customs brokerage to ensure the right forms are filled out

customs and provides complete visibility and status update messages.

Importer Security Filing (ISF)
When importing, ocean shipments require timely,
accurate ISF filing. To cover all the bases, you need to understand the nuances
of the agency’s “10+2” regulation. The regulation covers many pages in the
Federal Register and has inspired hundreds of white papers and slide
presentations designed to make the requirements clear.
Luckily, you don’t have to learn all that,
because we’ve done it for you. We are expert customs agents, and we treat your
shipments with all the rigor we would use on our own. Speak with our Customs
clearance specialists to learn more.
HTS Classification and Binding Rulings
The Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United
States Annotated (HTSA) is based on the International HTS. It provides a
description and the duties applicable to every item that enters the country. The
manual is immense. According to the CBP info center, it’s the size of an
unabridged dictionary. Just for comparison, the latest version of Webster’s
Unabridged Dictionary runs to 2,662 pages, and most others are in the same
range or even larger.
The CBP recommends against DIY use of the HTS
classification system because errors can result in steep fines and long delays.
Luckily, you don’t need to memorize the information in the HTS if you hire UNITED
CARGO EG as your customs brokerage firm, because we have experts in the system.
Partner Government Agency Filing (PGA)
U.S. Customs works hand-in-hand with many other
agencies — including the USDA, the EPA, the Department of the Treasury and more
— to guarantee all shipments comply with the unique regulations of each agency.
As an experienced customs brokerage, UNITED
CARGO EG has the skills and expertise to navigate through all the agencies to
guarantee your shipment sails through without needless delays.
