Customs Brokerage

Customs Brokerage
Need to clear customs fast?

A1 Global works with several licensed customs brokers. This ensures your shipments are accurately classified, properly valued and expedited through customs.

Customs brokerage is an extremely important, yet often overlooked, function of international logistics management. Failure to comply with the multitude of customs and other governmental agency regulations can result in (among other things) the assessment of stiff penalties, higher tariffs, customs audits, and your cargo being detained or refused entry to its destination country.

A1 Global specializes in helping our clients demystify and sort through these regulations. Our nationally licensed staff work closely with clients to help them avoid delays and costly penalties, while enabling them to take full advantage of the benefits offered through various free trade agreements (such as NAFTA) and other revenue favorable programs offered by the government.

A1 Global can effectively cope with any task related to representation before the customs authorities in accordance with the customs laws, and the various implementing rules and regulations. Some of our prepaid services include:

  • Representation of clients before the customs authorities
  • Preparing customs, transport documents and origin certificates
  • Transit and re-export of goods to any domestic and international destination
  • Guaranteeing of customs duties
  • Storage of goods in "customs warehouses," without taxation.
