Customs Clearance Fee

Shipping containers

If a customs bond or duty payment is required to clear cargo with customs, the customer also needs a customs broker to do the clearance process with customs.

The preparation and filing of the documents with customs and the process require special skills and knowledge, which only a customs broker will have. A customs clearance fee is a charge levied by the customs broker to handle the customs clearance.
