Import Clearance As an experienced provider of import clearance services, CH Powell has developed an intricate knowledge of government clearance regulations. Our understanding of the process turns compliance adherence into commercial advantage for our customers.

Compliance – CH Powell was among the first customs brokers to be validated under C-TPAT as a service provider. Further compliance emphasis is shown in the requirement to build classification assistance tools to ensure accurate HTSUS entry and the designation of the Director of Regulatory Compliance at a corporate management level.

Antidumping/Countervailing Duty – U.S. Customs and Border Protection is taking an increasingly aggressive approach toward identifying merchandise subject to antidumping (ADD) and countervailing duties (CVD). Navigating the complexities of import clearance subject to ADD and CVD regulations can be challenging. Our Import Clearance division’s expert understanding of trade remedies empowers our customers to better manage the risks associated with current orders while keeping them informed of new investigations relevant to their businesses.

Online Tracking/Tracing – Our proprietary tracking system provides customers visibility to import transaction detail online. Available to view are import shipment milestones and complete entry information. A more sophisticated purchase order tracking program is also available for customers desiring to track shipments from purchase order issuance.

Commercial Measurement – As security concerns and shrinking “free time” impact shipment timetables, CH Powell offers reporting formats that allow measurement of order transit through key checkpoints in our clients’ supply chain. “Event Alerts” are a proactive e-mail notice of out-of-schedule parameter exceptions delivered directly from our import clearance operating system.
