The sooner we recieve your paperwork, the sooner we can get the shipment cleared and avoid costly demurrage charges. To be safe it is best that we have atleast two business days notice prior to arrival, in the event that Customs wishes to see the documents and or examine the shipment. It is also recommended that you list your broker as the notify party on the bill of lading. This way the carrier will contact us upon arrival.
