Customs Import Bond for International Shipments

International shipments received by LSU from foreign suppliers must first pass through US Customs located in New Orleans, LA.

Procurement Services has purchased a continuous Customs Import Bond which will cover all entries made in the port over a 12-month period. The effective date of the bond is July 1, 2017.

The bond will cover all of the standard costs that are required for receiving and processing a shipment. Departments will be responsible for the payment of minimal fees that are specific to each shipment.

Additional fees that are not covered by the bond are exempt from competition in accordance with the LAC 34:XIII.525.A.16 and can be charged to the department’s LaCarte card.

LSU’s new Customs Brokers are:
