Centralized Import Entry Team

We believe that the best way to manage your imports is by using a centralized entry team approach. You would have one contact for everything from understanding your business and driving cost savings, to improve your reasonable care requirements. This is possible by using U.S. Customs Border and Protection’s Remote Location Filing (RLF).  All entries will be centrally filed through RLF to ensure consistency in entry preparation at any port.

Import Account Startup

Prior to startup, OCEANAIR will conduct an entry review to ensure that key entry data and tariff information has been captured accurately. If needed, a corrective action plan will be implemented to improve clearance/delivery times and unearth possible cost savings. We will provide feedback to your suppliers on their prepared documentation and, if necessary, obtain properly completed commercial invoices.

Entry Review Program

A licensed broker will conduct an entry review of all your Customs entries. In the event of a Customs audit, an entry review will be viewed as an effective corrective action to mitigate penalties.

The business process manager will be responsible for delegating the integration plan to various departments within OCEANAIR and our agent network. This manager will oversee scheduling and reporting to ensure timely delivery milestones. See our new Account integration plan for further details. Any risks or shortfalls will be addressed via email to you as part of the process and we will supply an account integration plan.

Tariff Verification Program

We will determine the proper classification of your products prior to import, which will save you thousands of dollars per year by preventing clearance delays, and allowing for a more accurate landed cost analysis.

Parts Database

By putting in the time upfront to develop and review a parts database, you will decrease clearance time per entry. Entering invoices at the part level detail is necessary for RLF filing and will allow us to provide complete landed cost analysis. It lets you know final landed cost at the part level as well.
