TAKING CARE OF ALL YOUR EVENT NEEDS
We provide Customs brokerage services for international companies exhibiting in the USA. Whether you already have a freight agent or need our help, we are perfectly positioned to help you.
Our agents are located in all major cities around the world have local knowledge that is paramount to ensure the success of your event. They can also communicate with you in your local time zones and language.
You may choose to use your own freight agent, however, they should check with us for our shipping instructions.
For each event, we’ll supply shipping instructions so that everyone knows

For all shipments coming into the US, a Customs entry must be submitted.
An import Bond is required for every shipment into the US. A non-refundable Bond fee is applicable.
EBISS has our own import Bond and we can offer reduced Bond fees on all imports.
For shipments coming into the US that will be re-exported, a Temporary import entry must be submitted. All items must then be re-exported after the event.
For items remaining in the US, we would submit a consumption (or permanent) entry. Duties are payable on imports. Note that if you have a mixed temporary and permanent shipment, a separate commercial invoice is required as we must submit two separate Customs entries.
Sometimes, an ATA Carnet can be beneficial. We can handle the clearance of any ATA Carnet shipment on your behalf.
Advance warehouse vs. direct to show
We recommend that all exhibits are delivered to the advance receiving warehouse for your event. Doing this ensures that:
If you need to ship later, we can still deliver directly to your booth but please be aware that we may often wait for some time before any truck is offloaded. Waiting time charges are therefore incurred as the truck is unable to make any other deliveries while waiting to make your delivery, and will be billed accordingly.
An EBISS representative will meet with you in person during the event if you desire. We can discuss your onward or return shipping arrangements. If you’re in another city, we can arrange to meet with you.
After the event, we’ll arrange for your shipment to be picked up, and based on your return instructions, we’ll process its return or onward delivery.
As well as returning to origin, we can organize delivery anywhere in the US or the world.
If we’re arranging a return outside of the US, we’ll also handle the Customs brokerage and return delivery.
You’ll be notified at key stages so that you can rest safe in the knowledge that EBISS is providing excellent care for your exhibits.
To further save you time, EBISS offers on-line ordering. This enables you to provide clear, specific instructions before pick-up and shipment of your exhibit.
