A Central Examination Station (CES) is a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol designated inspection center used by customs brokers, freight forwarders and NVOCCs. Providers like us provide the facility, labor and equipment to execute inspection of import cargo selected by CBP.

The duration of a customs exam can vary widely depending on several factors, including the type of goods being examined, the volume of shipments, the level of scrutiny required, and the efficiency of the customs authorities involved. In many cases, a customs exam can be completed within a few hours, but it can take longer in more complex situations.

To pay customs exam related charges, contact the customs office or your broker for instructions, use accepted payment methods such as bank transfers or credit cards, and ensure prompt verification of payment before proceeding with the clearance of your shipment. The specific process may vary by country.
