DB Schenker Advantage

Customs Consulting

Our experts look after your bottom line.

DB Schenker is pleased to offer a selection of Consulting Services that are focused on keeping our customers' business compliant. Our team of seasoned professionals can ensure our customers are up-to-date and in-line with the latest Customs requirements.

A compliant trade strategy has become more important than ever. With Canada and U.S. Customs’ administrations shifting their commercial enforcement activities away from the border to your office, the development and implementation of a compliant trade strategy has become more important than ever.

DB Schenker Consulting Services are there to assist you and enhance your firm’s compliance profile with Customs, which can lead to faster releases of shipments, eligibility for enhanced options with Customs and a reduction in risk of penalties and fines. We will explore every opportunity for preferential tariff treatment, reduce the risk of monetary penalties under the Administrative Monetary Penalty System (AMPS), and recover excess duties and taxes paid. DB Schenker Consulting Services look after your bottom line!

Compliance and Security

Our compliance review service simulates an actual customs audit, helping you recognize where you are not compliant. We will recommend ways to improve your internal customs process and reduce risk, whether from potential penalties or from missed opportunities to reduce duty payable.

We also assist our clients and their supply chain stakeholders in the assessment and application of security initiatives, such as Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), Partners in Protection (PIP) and Partners in Compliance (PIC).

Client Set-Up

The Client Set-Up service is designed to facilitate the transition of your customs brokerage process to DB Schenker. Through a review of past importations, we recover any overpayments of customs duties, develop and refine the tariff base to improve competitiveness and compliance with Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) requirements.
