Devil in the details.
Customs Brokerage is our founding business and our core expertise.
We can assure you that choosing the right customs broker can mean
the difference between profit and loss. Between compliance and noncompliance. Between your cargo being released and delivered on-time and chronic delays. For Steer, Customs Brokerage is more than filing paperwork. It’s managing a professional program of documentation and data down to the finest detail. That means no devils for our clients.

In international trade, no single cost can be more volatile than freight. Through our aggregated buying power and global partner network, Steer delivers pricing as good or better than the world’s largest logistics players. But what good is a negotiated rate if there are no containers and poor transit times? You need a team that can get creative about carrier mix, equipment utilization and advantages in the spot market.
Our transport team knows commodity shipping, global routing and market pricing inside-out. Why pay high LCL costs when we can manage a foreign consolidation program for you? Why tap a premium ocean service when your inventory levels are too high and you could “warehouse on the water” for no cost? Look to Steer for the best value and consistency when it comes to your transportation needs.
Beverage LogisticsRead moreClose
A New Kind of Beverage Logistics Company
How can you be a century-old company and still retain the spirit of a start up? At Steer, we think the answer is simple—service. That is why we are proud to offer the market a new alternative to the established beverage logistics industry, an alternative that puts the client and service first.
How can Steer improve your beverage logistics?
It’s not about doing it all—it’s about doing beverage logistics the right way. That is why we hand-selected top beverage logistics professionals who understand service and can deliver real-world solutions for our clients, not empty promises. It also means having a laser-focus on beverages as a commodity. Knowing how to pack, insulate, load and unload, refrigerate, ship, insure, consolidate and distribute. Advising clients on documentation requirements, COLAs and label approvals, import and export formalities, taxes and duties, and ever changing regulatory requirements.
Not the usual “we have offices and agents everywhere…” and the accompanying lack of service. Steer established our own, expert beverage logistics network globally—spanning all wine, beer and spirit origins. Global reach is really about local knowledge and experience, delivered worldwide.

What’s new? How about our global buyer’s consolidations, our West Coast USA wine consolidations for domestic and global distribution, custom IT and document services…. But more importantly, how can we innovate for you?
From GKG Law: Essentially, the Coast Guard is taking the position that (1) as long as shippers … have been tendering the accurate weight of the cargo being tendered, there is no need for them to change any processes. (2)…
