Import & Export Services
All merchandise coming into the United States must clear U.S. Customs and Border Protection and is subject to Customs duty, unless specifically exempted by law.
Clearance involves a number of steps, which include inspection and appraisement.
Import shipping and customs law requires that duty be paid on goods entering the county, according to its official classification from a tariff schedule.
Sometimes a surety bond is required, and some types of goods must meet admissibility standards, with proper permits secured in advance by the importer.
At Koreammart, our licensed, professional import services team has years of experience and ensures your goods sail smoothly through the U.S. Customs process,
which can be fraught with delays and frustrations for the uninitiated.
Our representative will determine whether your import shipping needs require door-to-door forwarding service, U.S. Customs clearance, or both.
We’ll contact our worldwide network of agents to work with your foreign contact to ship the merchandise properly.
We’ll prepare the bills of lading, organize forwarding, handle the U.S. Customs clearance, tariffs and duty, and any related fees.
If there is a problem, we’ll know what to do to fix it.
