Chamber Members in the News: Expeditors International and A.N. Deringer Inc.

October 21, 2009 at 2:18 pm

Expeditors International and A.N. Deringer Inc. are two of four brokerage firms selected by U.S. Customs and Border Protection to participate in a Broker Self-Assessment pilot program, American Shipper has learned.

The agency announced July 29 the selection of four companies out of 26 applicants to test whether a trusted compliance program should be instituted on a voluntary basis for customs brokers. CBP will not disclose the names of companies involved for privacy reasons.

OHL in Brentwood, Tenn., subsequently announced its Barthco International unit was chosen for the year-long partnership program. St. Albans, Vt., logistics and customs services provider A.N. Deringer will also self-police compliance with customs regulations, said Robert DeCamp, director of regulatory affairs and consulting. An official at Expeditors, one of the nation’s largest international freight forwarders, confirmed that the Seattle-based company was accepted into the Broker Self-Assessment (BSA) program.

All the companies were required to belong to the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism, a voluntary security-based program in which importers receive fewer container inspections if they and their vendors follow approved security plans that meet minimum criteria (by E. Kulisch, American Shipper, October 2009).
