Centralized Exam Station

Mercer, Full service CES facility

Mercer operates a U.S. Customs Bonded Centralized Exam Station (CES) for both Seattle and Tacoma Ports and the Blaine border crossing. This designation allows cargo to be delivered to our facility for examination as determined by CBP. With on-site CBP Officers and an in house VACIS system, Agriculture Lab, and large exam area, examinations are handled much more efficiently. Our availability turn time is usually less than 48 hours. No long delays, detention or storage charges prior to examination.
