Customs Brokerage Package For US-based Importers

This International Transportation & Customs Brokerage package is offered to US-based Importers of Record (IOR) to help facilitate international transactions and their subsequent Customs & Border Protections (CBP) clearances. Once your goods have arrived in the US and Customs clearance has occurred we will forward your goods into Amazon FBA. McKenzie Services arranges Customs House Brokerage (CHB) services by licensed CHB's on behalf of the importer of record. We do not mark up the customs broker fees in any way, and we only add a coordination fee to cover our administrative time and for acting as the Ultimate Consignee on your behalf.
