Flexport makes shipping your cargo transparent, reliable, and affordable

There’s nothing you can do to guarantee that your shipment won’t be pulled for an X-ray, Tail Gate, or Intensive exam, because U.S. Customs selects shipments at random.

However, it is possible to minimize the risk of a Customs exam by:

  • Shipping FCL instead of LCL. LCL shipments are more likely to be flagged for X-ray exams than FCL shipments.
  • If you’re shipping LCL, choose Flexport’s in-house LCL service. Flexport LCL is selective about what goods are consolidated into an LCL shipment, so if you’re shipping with Flexport LCL, you’ll see a lower rate of inspection and delay.
  • Participating in CTPAT.
