Importer Security Filing: Direct Filing Program Proves Success with TRG Direct

Share Article

TRG Direct's Importer Security Filing module has been live for 6 months. The new addition of the direct filing User Group has provided the team with great feedback and new ideas that will continue to enhance the system.

Six months into the implementation phase of Importer Security Filing, TRG Direct customers are pleased with their success. The web-based ABI system allows importers to file their ISF in-house at a significantly lower rate than the industry average. Priced 90% below filing through a broker and other ISF software, TRG Direct is not only competitive in price but also in ease of use as well.

In the past few months, TRG Direct has begun to host user group meetings for ISF direct filing customers to share their experiences with one another and bring suggestions to the group. The company obviously has no doubts in the system's capability as they have posted past user group audio recordings to their website,    "TRG Direct's ISF module is a living, breathing application," Gregg Cummings, TRG Direct National Sales Manager, said. "Our Customers continually provide us with new ideas and enhancements that we quickly incorporate to the system. Importer Security Filing is new to everyone; luckily our background in consumption entry filing provided us with a seamless transition into ISF."

The company has created quite a buzz in the industry for direct filing. Lynn McGowan, who self-files for importer Hamrick's, said, "Self - filing is the best decision we've made. It has allowed us to have better control of our entries and pick-up of containers. [TRG Direct is] the only way we can have 100% confirmation of compliance with self-filing ISF."

As Importer Security Filing gets closer and closer to the penalty phase, TRG Direct is expected to continue to grow. The company has reported that the release of the ISF Mitigation Guidelines has kept the phones ringing off the hook.

TRG Direct sets themselves apart from the crowd by increasing the capabilities of the system. In addition to the ISF module, the company has advertised an XML data push allowing importers to move repetitive data from the ISF directly to the customs entry.
