  • Customs Brokerage

Getting Started

The transport of OE auto and truck parts involves long and complicated entries with over 1000 line items and tens of thousands of SKU’s. Extensive product knowledge and industry experience, specifically knowledge of line item entry and the Customs requirements for each individual product, is extremely important to the success of transporting this highly complicated commodity. This client needs a Customs Brokerage partner who can give them the close attention to detail needed to quickly and efficiently identify the unique shipping requirements for any truck and/or automobile part. Additionally, they need a partner who has in-depth knowledge of Customs' requirements for this unique commodity.


Customs Clearance of Thousands of Different SKU's

Western Overseas Corporation was working with this OE company for Customs Brokerage for about three years when the company was enticed by a competitor to switch their services away from WOC. The company left WOC, but after 30 days of working with the competitor, not one of their items had been cleared through Customs. As a result, their production had come to a grinding halt. The OE company contacted WOC and informed them of their critical situation. By the end of that same day, WOC got all of the documentation for the customer's shipments and began getting their products cleared. With Western Overseas Corporation’s experience and high-level knowledge for this commodity, they knew exactly how to clear Customs quickly and efficiently. WOC won the company back and was able to keep production flowing so that the company did not lose money or business.
