What is a disbursement service fee?

A disbursement fee is charged for clients who do not pay their duties directly to Customs. This is a fee for outlaying the 7501 payment.

If applicable, a Disbursement Service Fee will appear in the Customs Charges section of your Flexport invoice. The final amount is updated when we have the 7501.
