Guarantee your imports

Protection for all your importing needs

Schenker’s Customs Bond Solutions improves importing efficiency. When you’re ready to import your products to the U.S., you need the right bond solution to help clear your shipment.

Schenker makes selecting the right bond – and obtaining it – easier than ever.

What is a Customs Bond?

A Customs bond is a financial guaranty between 3 parties: the Insurance/Surety company issuing the Customs bond, the Principal (who is required to file the bond), and Customs & Border Protection (CBP). The Customs bond guarantees Customs & Border Protection that if they cannot collect monies due from the Principal they can seek remedy, up to the bond amount, from the Insurance/Surety company. The Customs bond also indemnifies the Insurance/Surety company, allowing them to use any legal means to collect from the Principal any monies that were paid to CBP on the Principal’s behalf.
