Importer Security Filing Enforcement Begins

Local U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) offices have been flexing their Importer Security Filing (ISF) enforcement. This enforcement strategy allows local port-level discretion to hold cargo or issue liquidated damages/penalties against importers who do not comply with ISF filing requirements.

Enforcement actions are focused on the most egregious ISF violators, such as those with missing or significantly late ISFs. Non-compliant importers are given three warnings before CBP assesses liquidated damages. CBP will track ISF importer violations in a database that will provide visibility to local officers in an effort to identify offending importers nationwide.

To avoid cargo holds and liquidated penalties, Deringer recommends timely and accurate ISFs. Using Deringer for Customs brokerage and freight forwarding can help alleviate late filings.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
