Working with your customers in the USA you will know that the customs authorities in America require a very detailed reporting of the cargo imported into the US.
Not only do they want to know the value, commodity and other details of the product, but they also require information on the shipper, the origin, the producer as well as the final receiver etc.
Most US importers cover these requirements through their customs house brokers, but especially newcomers in the business often need help.
Besides that, shippers and especially traders often do not want to disclose details to the consignee side and OL through our own filings can protect the sensitive data.
Through our agents in the America OL can arrange the ISF filing too, however, a power of attorney is needed from the importer in the USA to be able to act on his behalf!
