Andrew C., East Coast CES Customer

For more than 25 years, East Coast CES has been a trusted partner of U.S. Customs & Border Protection, resulting in a robust understanding of the intricate complexities of the customs exam process. In New Jersey, we are proud to remain the only comprehensive Centralized Examination Station (CES) in the state, and the only site that offers a climate-controlled room to ensure temperature integrity and cargo value is protected throughout the exam process. In Philadelphia, our CES includes ambient warehouse space. 

Our experience, knowledge and operations work together to make the transfer, processing, and release of cargo smooth and efficient, resulting in a faster speed to market for you.
