Food Products

Bay provides brokerage, logistics and software solutions for many importers and exporters of food products. Working closely with the complexities associated with the FDA Bioterrorism Act and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, our clients are provided an experienced staff to ensure compliance with product code assignments and with other regulatory obligations. Bay understands the diversity and fragility of food products and has developed software that ensures efficiency and continuity throughout the importing process. We maintain a significant list of produce exporters that require expedited releases and entry certifications from U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Bay’s cutting edge EDI solutions provide immediate Prior Notice messages pursuant to the Bioterrorism Act in addition to electronic U.S. Customs and Border Protection certifications. These processes avoid unnecessary border delays and provide carriers with real time border arrival and release information. FDA May Proceed Notices and other essential messages are provided in a timely and accurate manner through Bay’s client communication network.  Bay works hands on with its clients on shipment consolidations, in-transit movements and NAFTA certifications.
