Bonds keep your cargo moving. We make them easy.


Customs Bonds protect you from the unexpected costs that result from a wide range of Customs issues. A Customs Bond (also sometimes called a US Surety Bond) assures the US Customs & Border Protection (CBP) that the importer will fulfill any financial responsibilities for Customs duties, penalties, and other obligations.


The right Customs Bond provides a buffer between CBP and the importer, reducing hassles and delays, and is required by CBP for nearly all imports. They are also required for Property Brokers that want to store or perform any activity (such as cartage) while in bond, in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
