Import Supply Chain
“Some of the most important challenges you’ll encounter in your import supply chain are Compliance, Compliance, and Compliance.”
In this fast-moving global business environment, one of the most important challenges you’ll face in your import supply chain is that of compliance. There are many government agencies (such as CBP, TSA, FDA, and FCC) that you must comply with when you intend to import into the United States, and it can be difficult to keep up with the rapidly changing regulations of these different agencies. 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. That is why JKI emphasizes compliance on our Import Services for our clients. This is also why JKI team members are highly trained, licensed, and/or certified to assist your import supply chain. In addition to this, we stay in close contact with industry associations and government agencies that may impact the import system of the United States to make sure we are aware of changes in regulation that may have an effect on your import supply chain. Most importantly, however, we personally care for each shipment. For every shipment, a licensed and/or certified JKI team member will be involved every step of the way to ensure your import supply chain keeps moving without any interruption. Please see our Customs Brokerage page to find out more about our Customs Brokerage services that enable your shipments to clear customs smoothly.
