Discount retailer


A major discount retailer required a cost-effective customs clearance service program

that provided consistent pre-clearance performance with real-time visibility to their

shipment status



The customer needed a high-end brokerage service at a low per container cost. The

customer wanted five day pre-clearance on all ocean shipments along with real-time

clearance event reporting



This customer had historically long standing relationships with its existing brokers and

was reluctant to introduce a new service provider



We developed a highly automated clearance solution for the customer that met their

cycle time and price expectations.  We worked with the customer to access

commercial invoice information direct from them (via EDI) and to source EDI manifest

details from their freight forwarder
