  • Ship4wd’s Digital Customs Clearance service offers a seamless and fully digital customs clearance process for goods imported into the U.S.

    With a paperless approach, importers can upload and review documentation, sign Power of Attorney (PoA), and receive real-time updates through an all-in-one dashboard. Additionally, our Import Duty Calculator allows you to estimate duties and fees with transparency. Real-time tracking capabilities offer continuous notifications, saving you time and keeping you informed about your cargo’s status. 

    Our expert support is available 24/7 over the chat to answer any of your questions, ensuring that you have a smooth and efficient importing experience. 

  • Getting started with Ship4wd’s Digital Customs Clearance service is simple. Follow these steps: 

    • Log into the platform: Access your Ship4wd account by logging in.
    • Search and select a quote: Browse and select the shipping quote that suits your needs.
    • Add “Customs Clearance & ISF Service”: During the booking process, click on “Additional Services” and add the “Customs Clearance & ISF Service” option to your shipment.
    • Fill in the necessary details: Provide the required information for customs clearance, such as documentation and import details. 

    Our user-friendly platform guides you through the process, ensuring a smooth and efficient experience from start to finish. 

  • To ensure a smooth customs clearance process, you should be well-prepared with the necessary documentation. The key document you’ll need is the commercial invoice, which is crucial for customs import. Here’s what to look for in your commercial invoice: 

    • Accurate Item Description: Ensure a clear and accurate description of the items being imported, preferably in English, to avoid misunderstandings.
    • HTS Code Verification: Double-check that your supplier has provided the correct Harmonized System (HTS) code, as this code determines how your goods are classified.
    • Country of Origin: Make sure the country of origin is correctly stated. Sometimes products are bought from one country but manufactured in another.
    • Currency of Sale: Ensure that the currency of the sale is clearly mentioned in the invoice.
    • Your Information: Ensure your details, including your tax ID, are listed on the invoice.
    • Supplier’s Details: Verify that the exporter has provided all their details. 

    Plan ahead and allow time to gather accurate information from your supplier, as U.S. Customs requires your documentation before your goods leave the country of origin. Being meticulous with these details will help ensure a smooth customs clearance process. 

  • If you ever need assistance, rest assured that Ship4wd has you covered with our exceptional 24/7 customer support. You can reach us around the clock through the chat button on the website, email, and phone on weekends, holidays, and during off-hours.
