Carefully inspect all freight to identify deficiencies in packaging

Problems that seem small at the time of loading can get much worse in transit, sometimes resulting in damage to the entire load.  For example, a small leak can contaminate the whole shipment; a collapsed carton can let the whole shipment move around enough to damage many other cartons.

Proper packaging helps protect your shipments from preventable cargo losses.

Quick Tip #58
Be prepared for customs penalties and fines under AMPS

Never assume that the absence of an audit means you will never be audited.  Penalties under AMPS (Administrative Monetary Penalty System) can be applied at the border at time of import (or export) and also post audit.
