Our Customs services include:
Every January, a new version of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States is published by the International Trade Commission (“ITC”). And, invariably, some HTS#s that existed last year no longer exist this year. This might not be always the easiest thing to do and companies find themselves at risk because of product misclassification. Our experienced professionals fully understand how to determine the correct Harmonized Tariff Number for imports and exports and will assure that the correct HTS# is assigned consistently across all your transactions. We can help you avoid penalties and guess work, while you can focus on your core business.
The Pre-Arrival Processing System (PAPS) is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) border cargo release mechanism that expedites the release of commercial shipments while still processing each shipment through the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE), the Automated Commercial Shipment (ACS), and the Automated Targeting System (ATS).
Aries Worldwide Logistics can help exporters with the refund of certain duties, internal revenue taxes and certain fees collected upon the importation of goods. Such refunds are only allowed upon the exportation or destruction of goods under U.S. Customs and Border.
As soon as the shipment is confirmed on a departed flight and the Wheels are up, we transmit customs entry. U.S. Customs allows Customs clearance while the freight is in the air destined for a port in the United States. “Wheels-Up” Customs clearance saves our customers up to 24 hours per shipment. It eliminates transfers of freight and documents. With a “Wheels-Up” clearance program the freight is cleared prior to landing on U.S. soil.
Our online customs processing allows us to electronically file customs entry directly with US Customs, enabling us to expedite the clearance process and the delivery of your cargo. Our dedicated licensed customs brokers have many years of experience with focus on compliance with customs regulations and reduce cargo delays and costs associated with those delays.
