Immediate electronic proof of Customs release.

Container Freight Stations (CFS), bonded warehouse, terminal facility, freight forwarder, shipper, or importer; you need this for the efficient management of bonded cargo.

CustomsNow™ Cargo Query System (CQS), a real-time Customs system, provides instant visibility to import cargo before it even departs origin for destination U.S.  CQS also provides immediate proof of U.S. Customs and Partner Government Agency (PGA) cargo release, and status of in-bond movements.  Eliminates the need for paper, fax or email as proof of Customs release or in-bond closeout.
