NEWSLETTER NO. 5/2015
LATE ISF FILING
we received the following advisory from US Customs. So
far US Customs allowed the brokers to file a late ISF
without a bond, if the consignee had no bond on file with
US Customs. US Customs will not allow this anymore.
If the consignee has no bond the broker must use his
own bond from now on, but he must get the approval
from his surety company.
The surety company will check the credit of the
consignee and depending on the result, either request:
a letter of guarantee for USD 10000.00 or
a letter of credit for USD 10000.00 or
USD 10000.00 cash
It will become much more difficult and expensive for
consignee without a bond unless ISF will be filed in time.
Please make sure that prior to booking your LCL
cargo to the USA, the ISF has been filed. Note that
the ISF is a responsibility of the Importer in the USA.
For more information please contact our LCL operation
