The evolution of customs clearance
Whether you are a professional importer or just importing goods privately, eezyimport has the perfect solution for you!
The technological world we live in changed the way we are handling our day to day tasks and the way we conduct business.
We don’t need a face to face interaction to sign a contract or order our goods, so why lean only on customs brokers to clear our goods? Why not harness the top technology to our side, and do the customs clearance ourselves, instead of using expensive and cumbersome outsourcing?

All you need is to meet a few requirements, and you’re ready to go!
Following are the minimum requirements for ISF filing and customs clearance with explanations of each requirement:
Bill of lading and Commercial Invoice – A Bill of Lading (sometimes abbreviated as B/L or BOL) is a document issued by a carrier (or their agent) to acknowledge receipt of cargo for shipment. A bill of lading is one of the most important documents, the bill of lading is a legally binding document providing the driver and the carrier all the details needed to process the freight shipment and invoice it correctly.
International classification HTS (Harmonized Tariff Schedule) codes are product classification codes combined with 10 digits. The first six digits are the international H.S. code, and the countries of import assign the subsequent digits to provide additional specific classification
At eezyimport ISF platform, you need to insert only the H.S. codes (first 6 digits)
– If you don’t have International 10-digits HTS code you will be able to use our Broker Module at first.
Customs bond – customs bond is needed for every formal entry (above $2500 worldwide or above 250$ for Chinese originated products) A customs surety bond is a contract used for guaranteeing that a specific obligation will be fulfilled between customs and an importer for any given import transaction. The main purpose of a customs bond is to ensure the payment of import duties and taxes.
– If you are a one-timer importer, you can choose a single bond (Single-entry bonds can be used to cover one import or shipment transaction only).
If you intend to make several shipments to the USA for one year, a continuous bond is the best choice (Continuous bonds cover every shipment you make within a year of the bond’s issue date).
