Petroleum and Chemical Industries


Petroleum and Chemical IndustriesDoes your company import high value technology and electronics shipments?

Importing high volume or infrequent petroleum or chemicals by pipeline, tanker ship/truck and or in drums or on pallets takes some special care and attention from your customs broker. Pacific Customs Brokers will assist your company in receiving the most favourable duty and tax rates for potentially high payouts. This ever-emerging industry requires trained professionals who are experts in determining accurate Harmonized System Tariff classifications, accurate country of origin information. Often times, Petroleum or Chemical companies or suppliers importing raw product, equipment or machinery, experience service failures from their customs broker due to:

  • Inaccurate or incomplete assessment of the correct HS Tariff classifications
  • Improper analysis of the complex subject country of original manufacture, when high technology instruments and items are often assembled with components made in several or many countries.
  • Questions as to the process for re-export of the equipment
  • Incomplete or unclear documentation.
