General Cargo Imports

Apparel_Jeans_Shipping

For years, Customized Brokers has been known for its reliable customs clearance and import services for perishables goods, and you can now expect the same service offerings for non-perishable general cargo.  Our import program is tailored to further simplify and meet all your logistics operation’s needs, and help ensure that customs issues at seaports, airports and/or border crossings do not delay your shipments. 

Along with customs clearance and import services, we provide a full suite of logistics services, including  domestic trucking and warehousing and distribution provided by our parent company Crowley to ensure our customers aren’t hindered by a weak supply chain link.  Additionally, we have long-standing relationships with regulatory trade authorities to ensure that the daunting array of import and export compliance issues are managed in a fast and efficient manner. Look to Customized Brokers and Crowley to ensure that your cargo is handled with the transparency of a trusted, single-source provider from origination to final destination.
