Remote Location Filing

What is Remote Location Filing?

Remote Location Filing (RLF) is a special level of clearance defined by US Customs and Border Protection as “allowing approved Customs Brokers or importers to submit electronic entry data for clearance from a location other than the port of arrival. RLF was created as one of the Customs Modernization Act provisions enacted in December 1993. Approved importers and brokers transmit electronic entry data via the Automated Broker Interface (ABI) to RLF-trained CBP ports. This transaction includes an electronic invoice when requested. RLF may be used for processing entries.”
