General Cargo Imports
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.
