EXPORT & IMPORT SERVICES

J.M. Rodgers offers a variety of logistics services to customers, with a specialization in these four areas:

Duty Drawback

Duty drawback is a refund of 99% of the duties paid on goods imported into the United States that are subsequently exported. The drawback claimant can either be an importer, manufacturer or exporter, provided the proper authorization and documentation is filed with the U.S. Customs Service.

The purpose of duty drawback is ultimately to encourage U.S. manufacturing, as well as foreign export sales. The laws go all the way back to 1789; duty drawback was the second law passed by the first-ever Congress.

Many companies that try duty drawback themselves wind up frustrated by the amount of paperwork, statutory laws, customs regulations, and procedures involved. Drawback laws are also constantly changing due to the shifting nature of free trade agreements. The complexity only increases.

J.M. Rodgers is recognized as a global leader in this logistics services area. We offer a six-point risk-free guarantee for customers, including a $1 million policy we’ve taken out to guard against the unlikely occurrence of errors and omissions.
