Ocean Going Cargo

In order for ocean going cargo entering the United States to pass through customs in a timely manner, CEESI needs to receive the information referenced in page three of the CBP Proposal for Advance Trade Data Elements. These documents are needed so at that CEESI can file the appropriate forms with U.S. customs at least 24 hours prior to a shipment being loaded. In addition, it is recommended by CEESI's import/export agent to also include the name and address of the freight forwarder, a packing slip, a purchase order and a ship date. CEESI's objective is not only to comply with custom requirements, but also to be able to pre-clear the shipment through customs for better customer service.
