  • Data Validation: Validating the data provided by the shipping entities to ensure accuracy and completeness. Performing checks to identify any errors or discrepancies that may result in delays or penalties.
  • Compliance Assistance: Guidance and support to ensure compliance with CBP regulations, such as proper classification of goods, adherence to import/export restrictions, and compliance with security measures.
  • Communication with CBP: Act as the liaison between the shipping entities and CBP, transmitting the manifest data and other required information to the CBP systems and facilitating communication regarding any inquiries or issues that may arise during the clearance process.
  • Recordkeeping: Maintaining a record of the manifest data and related documentation for a specified period, as required by CBP regulations. This enables easy access to historical data and supports auditing and compliance efforts.
