A.F. Romero has been operating since 1960 in Calexico, California, and in Otay Mesa, California since August, 2016.

We specialize in U.S.-maquiladora operations, with expertise in NAFTA analysis, U.S. Customs Value Reconciliations, Tariff Classification analysis, and U.S. Customs binding determinations.

Once you become our customer, we offer consultation on any of the issues facing your import/export operation at no additional cost to you. This includes NAFTA studies, Tariff classification determinations, U.S. Customs Reconciliation issues, liaison with U.S. Customs and other government agencies, etc.

If your volume permits, we can also establish an in-house service wherein we staff a person at your facility to efficiently and timely process cargo. This will allow the maquiladora to hand the U.S. Customs documents directly to their drivers before they leave the plant, so that they do not have to stop to retrieve those documents at another office. This will save time and money.

We have a very professional staff of 50 employees, willing to provide you and your company the service and attention necessary for the quick and efficient clearance of merchandise through Customs.

In Calexico, California, we operate two warehouses with a combined square footage of 65,000 sq ft. In Otay Mesa, we have access to a 6,000 sq ft warehouse. In addition to warehouse services, we offer distribution services, which we are currently doing for a number of customers. We can coordinate pickups by freight companies, and forward shipments to your customers. Daily inventory reports are provided to our customers via email, and also posted on our web page, accessed via a user ID and password.

In addition, we are a U.S. Customs Bonded Warehouse in Calexico, California.

Our import and export staff is under continuing education training, ensuring that we provide the most up-to-date training and skills for the benefit of our customers.

We believe that a selection of a U.S. Customs Broker is a very important decision. We encourage you to take the same careful and critical deliberation in choosing a U.S. Customs Broker as you would in choosing any other important service provider, such as attorney or CPA.

We participate in all forums and associations relative to U.S. Customs/Mexican Customs Maquiladora issues.

We are CTPAT Certified by U.S. Customs. We are members of the National Customs Brokers & Forwarders Assoc of America (NCBFAA). We are members of the International Compliance Professionals Association (ICPA).

Our most important trait is that we are flexible and can adapt to the specific unique needs of our customers, including staffing, hours of operations, unique operating procedures and personalized supervision.
