Classification Review 

When it comes to HTS (Harmonized Tariff System) Classification, there is no room for error.  Every January, a new version of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States is published by the International Trade Commission (“ITC”).  And, invariably, some HTS #s that existed last year no longer exist this year. This can be a difficult thing to deal with, and companies find themselves at risk because of product misclassification. Our experienced professionals fully understand how to determine the correct Harmonized Tariff Number for imports and exports and will work with clients to assure that the correct HTS# is assigned consistently across all transactions. We can help you avoid penalties and guesswork, while you can focus on your core business.

Pre-Arrival Processing

Fast & efficient clearances, with personalized attention to your cross-border shipments.  The Pre-Arrival Processing System (PAPS) is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) border cargo release mechanism for cross border shipments that expedites the release of commercial shipments while still processing each shipment through the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE), the Automated Commercial Shipment (ACS), and the Automated Targeting System (ATS). 


Aries Worldwide Logistics can help exporters with the refund of certain duties, internal revenue taxes, and certain fees collected upon the importation of goods.  Such refunds are only allowed upon the exportation or destruction of goods under U.S. Customs and Border.  We can also assist with the pre-approval filing with US Customs prior to export.  

Cargo Pre-Clearance

We have the technology to help you significantly reduce transit time by utilizing the pre-clearance process. 

As soon as the shipment is confirmed on a departed flight and the wheels are up, or 5 days prior to the vessel arriving, we transmit customs entry. U.S. Customs allows Customs clearance while the freight is in the air or 5 days prior to arrival at the destined port in the United States.  

Pre-Clearance saves our customers up to 24 hours per shipment. It eliminates transfers of freight and documents. With a Pre-Clearance program, the freight is cleared prior to landing on U.S. soil. 

Online Customs Processing

Our online Customs processing allows us to electronically file customs entry directly with US Customs, enabling us to expedite the clearance process and the delivery of your cargo. Our dedicated licensed customs brokers have many years of experience with a focus on compliance with customs regulations and reduce cargo delays and costs associated with those delays.  In addition, we can electronically clear for other applicable partner government agencies such as Food & Drug Administration and others.
