If you import products to the U.S., you need a Customs Bond.

Customs Bonds protect you from the unexpected costs that result from a wide range of Customs issues. A Customs Bond (also sometimes called a US Surety Bond) assures the US Customs & Border Protection (CBP) that the importer will fulfill any financial responsibilities for Customs duties, penalties, and other obligations.

The right Customs Bond provides a buffer between CBP and the importer, reducing hassles and delays, and is required by CBP for nearly all imports. They are also required for Property Brokers that want to store or perform any activity (such as cartage) while in bond, in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

If you import or export goods to Canada, you need a Customs Bond.

Does your company ship goods to Canada? A Canadian Customs Bond (D-120) can help your company move goods between the US and Canada quickly with immediate release from customs and assures the importer will adhere to all laws and regulations set forth by CBSA. The amount of the customs bond is determined by the commodities being imported and guarantees payment of duties and fees. Customs bonds are required by custom brokers, importers, transportation companies, logistic companies, shippers and others by the Government of Canada.

The right Customs Bond can provides a buffer between CBSA and the importer, reducing hassles and delays, and can protect your company from the unexpected costs that result from a wide range of Customs issues.
