U.S. Customs and Border Protection Regulations

“JKI: Where Efficiency & Reliability Meet Technology”

When your international business interacts with U.S. Customs and Border Protection as well as other government agencies, you must be ready to keep up with rapidly changing regulations. You also must be well versed in the different processes government agencies have in place.

In this demanding business world, it is quite challenging to keep in mind these various matters in addition to running a profitable operation. That is where JK International comes in. JK International is a licensed Customs House Broker, and our team members are well informed on the complexities of U.S. Customs and Border Protection regulations as well as other government agencies that may have an effect on your international shipment.

Misrepresentation or missing an import document can be very costly as it may delay your shipments and/or incur heavy fines. For example, Importer Security Filing (ISF, also known as 10+2) became effective on January 26, 2010, and its fines may go up to $5,000 for each non-compliance violation. To avoid such missteps on your customs clearance process, JKI team members are highly trained, licensed, and/or certified to assist with your customs clearance process.

To streamline our clients’ customs process, JK International has established a direct link with U.S. Customs and Border Protection through the Automated Broker Interface (ABI) system.
