“We pride ourselves in providing excellent service with fast results to satisfy every customer!” – CEO
Island Delivery Service offers a complete range of professional import services to meet the growing trade needs of our clients and produce the best possible solution for each individual business situation. Our knowledgeable customs consultants will work closely with you to minimize your company’s costs and potential liability.
We will monitor your shipment from all US and International ports and ensure compliance with all government regulations. We work with our customers in educating them about compliance regulations and how their particular imports will be handled.
We specialize in preparing CBP Form 7501. We do so by researching the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) to ascertain that the preferential duty rate is applied, while all other licensing requirements are met. We provide assistance in mitigating any potential issues prior to the shipment’s arrival.
We arrange the clearances for shipments before arrival at their final destinations. We work with all of our partners to deliver the best advantage for all of our customers.
Depend on Island Delivery Service to assist in preparation and filing Form 721VI and making sure that any taxes assessed are remitted, as we liaise with the VI Bureau of Internal Revenue Agent to clear your imports. We also service customers who need their monthly excise payments managed in staying up to date and on target.
We offer connections to local trucking, warehousing, customs bonds, excise bonds and cargo insurance.
