ISF Filing

Importer Security Filing (10+2)



ISF filing is a mandatory step and it is required to be filed by law 24 hours before loading the cargo onto the vessel, otherwise it is subject to a possible $5,000+ penalty by USA Customs and Border Protection (CBP).


It is an extra layer of security for Ocean Freight (Vessel) imports. It informs US Customs of the importer, cargo and shipper details before the shipment enters the United States.


We highly recommend paying attention to time difference between other countries vs. USA EST.
