Frequently Asked Questions
What is a customs broker?
A key component of IBC's total logistics service is our in-house brokerage services. We arrange the customs clearance process for you during transport to ensure compliance aligned with rules and regulations. IBC has a direct link with the United States Customs and Border Protection’s Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) through direct electronic transmission of entry data via the Automated Broker Interface (ABI) module.
How is a customs broker different from a freight forwarder?
A freight forwarder organizes transportation for individuals and corporations to get goods from the manufacturer or producer to the customer, whereas a customs broker assists importers and exporters with clearance in meeting US government requirements to ensure a smooth clearance process.
Can I import goods without the services of a customs broker?
Yes, but many importers choose to utilize a customs broker's services to ensure goods compliantly move through US CBP clearance so that deliveries are correctly imported and without delays.
How do I pay duties and taxes?
Duties and taxes vary based on the type of goods imported. That noted, you can pay with US currency, a personal check or a government check. You must also present identifications, such as a license or passport. A customs broker can help you automate the process through their entry filing prior to importation of your goods.
What paperwork is required for customs brokerage?
There are a number of documents required for customs brokerage, including an invoice checklist that outlines the item, the quantity, the value, the origin country and the destination country. It also requires you to list the name and address of the person/business selling the goods and the name of the person/business buying the goods. Additionally, you’ll be required to confirm compliance with US Customs to clear transports.
