How to ensure a smooth experience at U.S. Customs
 
  1. Become familiar enough with the Mod Act to understand your responsibilities and avoid facing CBP audits or penalties.
  2. Be aware that CBP enforcement and scrutiny are on the rise. 
  3. Make the most of existing trade agreements, duty drawbacks and other programs to achieve the right cost/benefit balance for your needs.
