The good news is that Port of Entry Operations, as well as Border Security programs, including Border Patrol and CBP Air and Marine Operations, will continue to function during the US federal government shutdown because they have been deemed law enforcement and necessary for the safety of life and protection of property. The bad news is that there will be delays because supplier agencies have been affected by the shutdown. For the time-being low value shipments will proceed as usual. All other import and export clients who are shipping to the US, or trans-shipping through the US, should ensure that their documentation 100% complies with international customs requirements to avoid any delays like inspections. If you have questions please call us.
