UNDER ITS NATIONAL CUSTOMS BROKERS PERMIT, VORTEX FACILITATES U.S. CUSTOMS RELEASE OF YOUR SHIPMENTS AT ANY AIR OR OCEAN PORT IN THE U.S.A.
VORTEX simultaneously coordinates release and compliance with any other US Government agencies involved, ensuring that our customer's Supply Chain never slows down.
VORTEX processes entries electronically with CBP (US Customs & Border Protection) and PGA's (participating government agencies) carefully verifying that all requirements are met. PGA's include but are not limited to FDA, USDA, PPQ, F&W, BTT, FCC, DOT, EPA.
For ocean shipments VORTEX timely files ISF(Import Security Filing) prior to departure from origin as is strictly required by CBP.
