Customer Service & Compliance
At Near North, we believe that your entry should be 100% correct every time. Regardless of the associated risk, compliance is about a commitment to quality.
Hiring the right people and training them naturally leads us to a place of compliance. At Near North, compliance is not a 9-to-5 job; we always have tariff specialists available around the clock to assist with your Customs brokerage needs.
Compliance is not just about providing you with the correct tariff; and that is why the Near North compliance team will help guide you through all supply chain and trade rules to ensure your transactions are handled according to all current legislations. We will also provide you with a simple understanding of why your entries need to be done this way, and advise you of what to do to mitigate risk in the future.
We strive to provide excellence built on personalized service and a commitment to provide innovative solutions for our clients’ international supply chain requirements. Near North Customs Brokers’ goal is providing clients with a best in class client experience every time.
