Advanced Freight and Duties Memo 2015


We would like to remind you that we charge a 2% fee on all advance freight payments that we issue on your behalf. The fee will be added to all invoices upon billing. To avoid the freight advance fee, customers can pay directly to the carrier/airline.
In addition a fee will be added to your invoice for duties paid on your behalf. To avoid this fee you can provide us with your bank account information and we will forward that information to Customs, by this method duties will be deducted automatically from your business bank account.

Duties incurred under $500, CB will pay on client’s behalf and will be billed to you at no additional cost, courtesy for doing business with Customized Brokers. Duties above $500, CB will pay on customer’s behalf, charging a disbursement fee of 5%
