Here are some FAQs, or frequently asked questions, we are asked about on a regular basis. If you should need clarification on any of these points a Super Truck shipping expert can answer any questions you may have about getting your shipment from A to B.
What is the advantage of Super Truck being a Customs Bonded Carrier?
A Bonded Carrier allows for the transport of freight that is NOT remaining in that country. Whether products reach the U.S. via plane, boat or other means, trucks are used to transport them to their final destinations. A bonded truck driver holds a special certification issued from this company, or a third-party company, that acts as an insurance policy. There is a small fee for the use of Super Truck’s Bond.
Bonded Goods are dutiable, landed imports stored under the supervision of customs authorities in bonded warehouses. Bondedgoods are released for re-export. They may be released to the importer upon assessment and payment of import duties, taxes, and other charges.
A bonded carrier is a licensed transporter that can move freight through U.S. ports of entry without paying duty on those goods, or obtaining a customs release during border crossing.
Bonded carriers have a clear advantage in expediting the shipping process, while still adhering to customs protocol. When a bonded carrier moves freight, that load is called an in-bond shipment. This label streamlines the import-export process for your shipments, or forwarded freight, which saves you time and money.
Bonded carriers not only expedite the importing and exporting, but they also give you the peace of mind that your shipment(s) always adhere to customs protocol.
