Customs Brokerage


Duty drawback allows importers to claim refunds of duties paid on imported merchandise that is exported in the same condition or that is processed or assembled into a finished article that is then exported.

Many companies do not know if they are able to reclaim duties or over payments which put cash back in your pocket. While the government keeps a small portion of the duty as a processing fee, refund amount can be significant and make a meaningful contribution to a company’s bottom line.

We offer a free consultation to determine if the possibility of duty recovery exists. For more information on how CEP Customs Broker can help your company recoup duties, please email or call (305) 477-3477.

Importer Security Filing (ISF)

The Importer Security Filing (ISF), commonly known as the “10+2” initiative, is a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulation requiring importers using ocean transportation that call a U.S. port directly, to provide data electronically to CBP. Like Customs entries, a single transaction bond or a continuous bond is required for ISF transactions.

For additional information on the specific data elements required please visit F.A.Q.
