The food industry, shipping, and the NGOs – in popular terms, the Iron Triangle – have for decades enjoyed a special status when sending aid from the US, which benefits carriers such as Maersk.

Importing and managing the logistics of your precious freight is no easy task. Compliance to U.S. Customs & Border Patrol is essential to your cargo clearing customs. Use a freight forwarder to lower your chances of having shipment delays and to oversee all of your international freight logistics. Contact a customs broker to file your ISF and issue any pre-alerts to avoid penalties and delays, and arrange your ocean freight and imports customs clearance.
