IMPORTS

As the US Customs Service directs its activities toward complete automation, we have likewise assimilated these new programs promptly and efficiently. Terminology such as ABI, ACS, Paired Ports, EDI, One Stop Quota, ACH, AMS, and Statement Processing invaded our industry but was met aggressively and thoroughly by us.

In utilizing the account executive system, importers and their goods are categorized in general groups (i.e., electronics, wearing, apparel, textile products, foodstuff, oilwell supplies, consumer products, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, etc.) and assigned to individual staff members trained and qualified to process these products accordingly.

Our import personnel are intensely involved in cargo control by continuously analyzing present air and sea routings to determine if pricing is competitive and transit deadlines are being met. Suggestions will be offered recommending our own agency network. These involve air and ocean consolidations tailored to the clients requirements. Our buying power is extended to the importer to afford them the best possible combination of landed cost and prompt delivery.
