The service was introduced after US Customs and Border Protection granted a National Brokerage Permit to ISS Brokerage Services to file customs entries remotely via Remote Location Filing. The company can now undertake customs brokerage in all North American ports outside its Houston base to offer a faster RLF electronic filling capability to clients in the US.
ISS Brokerage also appointed Theresa Bennington as brokerage manager, North America, who will oversee the new service from her base in Houston.
'Theresa’s passion for trade compliance together with her expertise in brokerage operations makes her a valuable asset to both ISS and our clients. Her 38 years’ experience means she is renowned in both Houston and in the industry,' said Clark J. Buffam, ISS gm Offshore Logistics, North America.
ISS Brokerage Services handles customs brokerage activities entirely in-house including ISF Filing, continuous bond, duty drawbacks, import consulting, TIB entry and warehousing and delivery.
