Customs Brokerage


Janel is an industry leader in customs brokerage services and compliance. We are ACE-ready. We have been C-TPAT certified since September 2003.

ACE? We've been ready.

Janel is on the cutting-edge of import customs clearance technology. As one of the first participants in the ACE environment, Janel has had ahead-of-the-curve access to all CBP and partner agency pilot programs, including Simplified Entry, and various EPA and FDA pilots, to expedite the release of customer cargo.

We (that means you, too) have a seat at the table.

Recognized nationally for their contributions to the customs brokerage trade, Janel executives have been honored with appointments to CBP's COAC (the agency's advisory committee on commercial operations of customs and border protection) and other national, regional and local government and trade associations. Customers love the unique impact we can have in driving modernization of customs processing. After all, a business partner that sees the road ahead is nice; one that is paving the way is even better.

We build compliance into every transaction.

With a history of successful broker management and FDA audits, we deliver timely, error-free entry filing. We work from written customer SOPs, leverage technology to automate compliance, and measure our services routinely to ensure quality. When you make our team of experts yours, you are investing in a support system for your supply chain that turns a cost-center into a value-added activity benefitting the entire enterprise.
