Everything you need to fill out your ISF form and ship your cargo on time.
The ISF (10+2) form is legally required by US Customs for all ocean cargo before a vessel departs for the United States.
ISF must be filed at least 24 hours before cargo departs for the United States and completed no later than 24 hours prior to its arrival.
While the carrier files some information from their side, US importers must file the ISF to get their ocean cargo cleared from customs.
The form must be filed for the shipment to clear customs. Penalties for non-compliance include a $5,000 fine, increased inspections, and cargo delays.
