Hawthorne Global Provides U.S Customs & Border Protection Compliance for Customs Brokerage in Houston

Company is Now Offering Comprehensive Customs Brokerage Services in Houston

HOUSTON, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Since the late 1950s, Hawthorne Global has been providing customs brokerage services to shipping companies. Shipping companies in the Houston area, where Hawthorne is based, have long enjoyed the advantage of the company's expertise and services. Hawthorne Global has recently announced their continuing focus on making sure their services comply firmly with U.S. Customs and Border Protection standards.

The United States receives thousands of shipments every day. However, "clearing" these shipments--or custom broking them--can be a complicated and tedious process. To make it through U.S. customs, shippers have to adhere to the regulations of U.S. Customs Border and Protection (CBP), an arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The largest law enforcement agency in the country, the CBP has become more scrutinizing over the years, thus making the practice of customs broking more complex.

This is where Hawthorne Global steps in to ensure timely and accurate receipt of goods on their client's behalf. The company provides an army of highly seasoned custom brokers, who help importers with the complexities of the CBP's network of rules and regulations. That way, it saves shippers money and effort trying to navigate customs demands. Also at Hawthorne's disposal are freight expeditors, handsomely armed with the company's Ocean Transportation Intermediary (OTI) license, FMC no. 3828F. Consequently, Hawthorne's freight expeditors can handle all cargo shipped to and from the U.S. This includes all "Foreign to Foreign" goods, moving from one foreign country to the other. With both teams of talented and experienced professionals, Houston shippers can find comfort in their goods being handled in the best way possible. Hawthorne Global's new commitment to U.S. Customs & Border Protection compliance will make sure everything goes smoothly.

Adding to the value of Hawthorne Global is its location. Its operations are carried out near the port of Houston, which happens to be one of the country's largest. Also close by are the Bush Intercontinental Airport and the United Pacific Railroad and BNSF Railway, the two largest freight railroad networks in the country. Thus Hawthorne never lacks for high-speed, efficient transportation and convenient access to its services.
