Centralized Bond Unit

Let Avalon's Centralized Bond Unit simplify your continuous bonds.


Centralized Bond Unit

Avalon created our Centralized Bond Unit (CBU) in 2005 when CBP began filing continuous bonds with the Revenue Division. Through our Merlin portal and the CBU, Avalon has consistently maintained the lowest rejection rates in the industry for new continuous and ISF bond filings.

While many customs brokers prefer the ease and simplicity of using Merlin to file bonds electronically, our CBU can process all new continuous bonds on your behalf, as desired by you. In addition, the CBU minimizes any strain on your operations by managing the entire rollover process to transition continuous bonds from one surety to another. Avalon can also work with you to pull the data from your ABI system to make the transition even smoother. Our experienced and dedicated CBU will save you time and money, while providing operating controls and data to enhance your customer relationships.

The CBU maintains an excellent relationship with the Revenue Division and meets with them on a quarterly basis. Our Merlin portal is also regularly enhanced based on the Revenue Division’s newest requirements, and we are often a surety test pilot for CBP’s paperless processes.
