Customs Exam – Philadelphia

We are now offering CES services in Philadelphia.

East Coast Warehouse is proud to now call Philadelphia home. We were recently designated by U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) to serve as a centralized examination station (CES) for the Port of Entry of the Delaware River and Bay.

Our Philadelphia location is strategically and conveniently located on the port, with a 5.75-acre exam and post-exam container service yard, as well as ambient warehouse space.
