Our imaging system keeps a permanent record of every shipping document, including air waybills, bills of lading, commercial invoices, and all customs forms.

Those images can be viewed on-line and emailed or faxed on demand. We also provide our clients with regular CD-ROM backups of all shipment documentation. Because US Customs requires importers to maintain copies of all import documents for at least five years from the date of liquidation, this feature can be an important part of an importer's record retention program.
