"The Shortest Distance Between Point A
 and Point B Is a Straight Line"

This longtime saying is absolutely true. However, when it comes to importing and exporting, the line is never straight. Twists and turns wrinkle the line and can have a hazardous effect on your business. Government agencies, unexpected changes in laws, and lack of knowledge about the process all wreak havoc on your business, your profits, and your sanity. Our job is to keep your imports and exports on a straight path so they reach their destination as quickly as possible.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could simply box up your product and ship it from China? Or order whatever you please from Taiwan and have it delivered straight to your door? But rules, regulations, and a multitude of government agencies complicate that straight line. Let us take the hassle out of importing and exporting for you.

Instead of:

-

Placing your order

-

Establishing accounts with freight terminals and exam sites

-

Keeping on top of air carriers, steamship companies, and freight forwarders

-

Calling everyone on earth for freight rates and quotes

-

Tracking the arrival

-

Making appointments for inspections

-

Maintaining a knowledge base of government agency regulations

-

Filing Customs entry documents at the port

-

Tracking shipments on the piers

-

Tracking your shipment in Customs

-

Obtaining clearance from Customs and other regulating government agencies

-

Correcting problems as they occur

-

Filing Customs follow-ups and duty payments

-

Coordinating exam facilities

-

Tangling with the government's automated manifest system for your cargo

-

Arranging for delivery to your location

 

You can:

-

Place your order

-

Make one phone call to Agra-Services

-

Receive delivery of your shipment
 

PLUS you can:

-

Have access to real-time, on-line information about your shipments

-

Have one itemized invoice for all your services

-

Have your own import specialist to handle your cargo

We're open 7 days a week to clear your import and export shipments as quickly as possible. We communicate with you every step of the way so you can meet your shipping commitments.

Oh... we may have forgotten to tell you! You will never play telephone tag at Agra-Services. At any time you can press 0 from our automated attendant to speak with a live person. Every time you call you will speak with a full-time transportation professional.

Let us handle the complicated issues that pertain to importing and exporting so you can handle the business of making money.

Agra Customs Alert
Date: Thursday, May 19, 2015
Subject: Importer Security Filing (ISF) Enforcement has begun
To: All Our Valued Customers
From: Howard Berman; Vice President - CFO

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has begun enforcing penalties for late ISF filings. Beginning May 14, 2015, CBP will start issuing penalties and liquidated damage claims on shipments arriving without an ISF being filed timely. As you are aware, an ISF is filed timely when all accurate ISF information is transmitted 24 hours prior to vessel departure. If inaccurate information is provided at the time of filing, the ISF (i.e. wrong bill of lading number) may also result in unnecessary exams/holds and can result in liquidated damages in the amount of $5,000.00.

CBP plans to place a hold on any non-compliant shipment upon arrival, and may designate the shipment for an intensive exam or a VACIS exam. This will undoubtedly add additional time and expense to each of your shipments.

In order to avoid penalties and unnecessary exams, kindly ensure that you forward your ISF information timely and accurately to Agra Services.

If you have any questions about this procedure please do not hesitate to contact Agra Services.
