Customs Clearance Basics

Customs clearance is the process of getting your goods legally allowed to enter the country. It involves declaring the value and nature of the goods, paying any fees or taxes, and ensuring that the goods comply with U.S. regulations.The customs clearance process can be quite complex, especially for those who are new to importing goods into the United States. Freightclear’s expert team combined with innovative workflows, makes the customs clearance process smooth and efficient. 

Before you can begin the customs clearance process, you must ensure that you have all the necessary documentation and that your goods comply with U.S. regulations. Here are a few things you should consider:


Key Documents for Customs Clearance

Commercial Invoice

The commercial invoice must accurately describe the goods, their quantity, and their value. This document is essential for determining the value of your goods and calculating any applicable duties and taxes.

Bill of Lading or Airway Bill

These documents confirm the shipment’s transport and delivery information. They also serve as proof of shipment and provide details on the carrier, origin, and destination of the goods.

An import declaration (customs form) that details the goods and their value. This document is required by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and provides information on the importer, exporter, and the goods being imported.

Other documents may be needed depending on the nature of the goods, such as permits or licenses. For example, if you are importing food or drugs, you may need to provide additional documentation to comply with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations.

Importer of Record Identification & Proof

The Importer of Record is the ultimate consignee or buyer/importer of the goods entering the USA. The importer of record can be an individual or a company. Individual importers use their social security # as an importer ID. A drivers license is the correct form of ID for an individual importer of record. A power of attorney should then be signed by that individual.

Corporate importers are companies, LLC’s or business entities acting as the official importer of record. The proper ID for customs purposes is a letter issued by the IRS to the corporation with its official name and address prominently displayed. A power of attorney should then be signed by an authorized corporate officer. 

The customs clearance process can be complex, especially for those who are new to importing goods into the United States. However, with the guidance of the Freightclear team and our importer workflows , it can be a smooth and efficient process.
