Customs Brokerage Services

As our name suggest our primary area of expertise is U.S Customs Brokerage.  We can process all necessary documentation to fulfill U.S Government requirements for release of imported cargo and clearance of cargo for export. Although over 85% of our entries are conducted via  Laredo,TX and Mcallen/Hidalgo/Pharr,TX Ports of Entry , we hold a national permit that allows us to import merchandise via any port in the nation. We have experience working out of most major ports in the nation, a map of ports we frequently operate from can be found here.

We routinely work with freight forwarders from around the world to facility the transportation under bond of raw materials and components from there U.S Ports of arrival to there final destinations in Mexico. We also work closely with Mexican and Canadian companies to assist in the timely transit of fresh fruits and vegetables from Mexico in to the Canadian market.


Our experience, efficiently and dedication to compliance in this area has allowed us the opportunity to become not only filers but bond administrators for bonded carriers nationwide.  Thru these partnerships our carrier clients can provide transportation for bonded merchandise while greatly diminishing the administrative overhead typically needed to file bonded entries and verify proper cancellation of exportation.
