As the supervisory entry specialist for the port of Charleston for US Customs and Border Protection, I supervise the Entry Department which is responsible for the paperwork that is submitted by importers, brokers in the trade community for the importation of commodities or goods into the United States.

There is a lot of logistics with the paperwork. Everything has to be, has to be in order. We’re gonna communicate to any of the shippers, or the truckers, um any issues that they currently have.

The most important thing in trade is time. It’s a billion dollar industry. You do not want to hold onto something needlessly.
