U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requires electronic advance cargo information for all shipments arriving the U.S. by vessel in the form of an Importer Security Filing (ISF).
The U.S. importer is required to submit the ISF with CBP no later than 24 hours before the cargo is laden aboard a vessel destined to the United States.
Failure to file a timely ISF or the filing of an inaccurate ISF may result in a penalty of $5,000, delayed cargo loading at origin or CBP inspection at destination. These are direct costs to the U.S. Importer to be avoided…
AFC International can file the ISF on your behalf.
